Today is World Environment Day, a day marked by the United Nations to raise awareness of the environment and specific environmental issues. Why not celebrate world environment day by going green TODAY! Here are some tips to help promote an eco-friendly office:
- Switch to Green Products: When buying your office supplies look out for eco-friendly product alternatives such as 100% recycled paper, reusable pens, remanufactured ink and toners – the list goes on! You can check out our extensive range of recycled products here.
- Reusable Cups: A study conducted by Recycle List Ireland revealed that 200 million disposable cups are thrown away every year – this equates to 22,000 cups per hour! Your office can help reduce this waste by making the simple to change to reusable cups. Not only will this be beneficial to the environment, these cups can be personalised with your company logo therefore boosting your brand awareness!
- Printing: Where possible, employers should encourage employees to avoid unnecessary printing when documents can be stored or transmitted digitally. When printing a document is unavoidable, small changes such as switching your printer to economy mode, printing both sides of the page, using smaller font etc. can significantly reduce the amount of wastage.
- Recycling Bins: Make it easier for people to recycle by placing recycling bins in prominent areas throughout the office. For example, in the breakout area, beside the printer etc.
