Being green and doing the best for the environment are more important today than ever. As we have seen so much destruction globally already caused by climate change as well as deforestation and the plight of the plastic in the oceans around the world it is clear that we all need to do as much as we can to make sure we protect our planet.
Doing this in the workplace as well as at home is important, and there are plenty of things that you can do at work to be more considerate of the environment and help the planet.
Here are a few ideas…
Save Energy – This one will also save money as well as saving the earth! Make sure that all computers and electrical equipment is turned off at night before everyone leaves. Installing timers on things like lights will also mean that they will be turned off when no longer needed. Also think about heating – make sure you don’t have furniture in front of the radiators as this will mean it takes more heating to warm the room.
Recycle – This is really important, and you may be able to save a lot more waste going to landfill and instead ensure that it can be reused. Contact a commercial recycling company such as https://www.printwaste.co.uk/business-recycling-solutions/ who will be able to help and advise you on what you can recycle.
Travel – Getting to work in rush hour is not only boring but also is bad for the planet. Why not start an employee car share, or cycle into work – so you can get fit and save the planet!
