This week’s end marks halfway through our Junk Free June adventure!

The team at SilverStripe have been steadfast in their efforts, with only ‘minor’ slip-ups and we’re happy to say we’ve reached over half of our target!

We all have different goals for Junk Free June, and we’ve had some AMAZING results! Notable achievements have been: 

  • Igor has been rigorously working out and counting his calories for the last few weeks and has lost an amazing 4kgs! Awesome work, Igor!

  • Vinh has been diligently going alcohol free and is feeling super thankful to all his friends and colleagues for all the support! He even said no to his favourite Pinot Gris! His cat is not so supportive...

  • Elliot made it through a few weeks without precious coffee. But dealing with children in the mornings broke him. Valiant effort, Elliot!

  • A few days into the challenge, Simon decided to join the team by quitting smoking, not just for June, but…forever. Last week, he walked into The Fix to get some mints. The service man at the counter recognised him, so prepared to give Simon his usual cigarette pack. When Simon said “No, I quit”, the man was stunned and couldn’t speak for…probably the next 3 minutes. “That shopping experience was priceless,” said a happy Simon on the next day.

One of the perks of working at SilverStripe is that we have a great kitchen on site to use, and many staff members that like to cook and bake in office! As a treat for us Junk Free June-ers, Eva, our Accounts Administrator, has made us some amazing healthy, wholesome lunches this week.

We had some CRAZY GOOD homemade grain sourdough, and some fresh pork and chive dumplings. Being refined sugar and junk free has been easy with this kind of help. Thanks, Eva!

With two weeks to go, we have such a good chance of reaching our target, but we still need your help! We hit 66% this week and let's keep it going!
