“The earth is what we all have in common”
Having a more environmentally friendly workplace will help the world as well as your business because showing you care is always the best way. But how can you make your business more environmentally friendly? Good question…
Promote a paperless office. This can be done by communicating through phone calls and emails instead of letters. Doing this can make the workplace more environmentally friendly because it will reduce c02 emissions and save trees. If going paperless isn’t really an option for you right now, then you could implement a recycling program. This can be done by having recycling bins, compost bins and rubbish bins with straightforward signs showing what is acceptable to go in them. Also consider looking into safe removal and donation of old unwanted equipment such as furniture and technology in your workplace that can go to local organisations supporting recycling of furniture and electronics.
A way to make your workplace look beautiful and also create a stress-free environment would be to invest in office plants. This of course will also help boost oxygen levels and remove harmful pollutants such as carbon dioxide. Did you know indoor plants can reduce up to 87% of indoor air pollutants in just 24 hours?!
“Being green can keep you clean”
Speaking of green, another thing to consider is supporting green vendors, but how can this be done? Doing business with green friendly brands and companies will show your environmentally friendly image. Working with green vendors can give you environmentally friendly products and supplies that reduce waste and maximise resource efficiency.
Did you know? A couple of examples of big brands that make steps to be environmentally friendly are Nike, Apple, Disney, Starbucks and Ikea plus many more.
