Mission Information
Tips: Decide on your criteria for what makes a store or coffee shop ‘sustainable’ before you start. Are the big chains ‘better’ than the small independent stores?

Geography: Geographers are interested in the idea that we should live in a way that doesn’t reduce the chances of future generations living in the same way – that’s what sustainability is all about. Many people talk about sustainability but this mission will reveal which businesses actually ‘live sustainably.’ One chain coffee store recently declared that “geography is a flavor.”
Mission Risk: Medium
Medium. Keep your wits about you, anything could happen.
Try not to get in the way of shoppers who are often in a hurry. Always work in a team and get permission before setting out on an exploration.

Risky business

It's your job to survive your explorations intact.
