Everyone can do a little more to be eco-friendly. Businesses, particularly larger corporations, have a responsibility to do what they can. Whether you are trying to meet your New Year’s resolutions before the year is up or you have some quotas to meet, being more environmentally conscious is a great idea.
Here’s our tips for being more eco-friendly this winter.
Implement recycling and composting
Proper recycling measures are important in any business. It reduces the amount of waste going to landfills and is a great option for many reasons. While a lot of businesses utilise recycling services, they don’t always make use of composting services. In many workplaces, there is a lot of food waste, whether it’s teabags and coffee grounds or leftover food from lunches or staff parties. Adding a compost bin to your workplace is a great way to prompt your employees to responsibly get rid of their waste and ensure they do their bit. If you are having a Christmas staff party, make sure that all waste whether food or plastic and cardboard is properly recycled.
Switch to reusable office supplies
Although it isn’t always practical for all workplaces to go paperless, there are other ways to reduce the amount of rubbish and recycling you produce. Why not switch to reusable office supplies such as refill pens and dry-erase boards? You can also encourage employees to take digital notes instead of using paper or sticky notes. This helps limit the amount of plastic and paper being sent to waste disposal services.
Incentivise employees to change their commute
There are many ways to encourage employees to walk, cycle or take the bus to work in order to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions. You can install a bike rack outside the office or take part in the Cycle to Work scheme. You can also subsidise public transport passes to give employees a more cost-effective way to get to work.
