Disposable items are so handy in the modern age, and yet they are so damaging to the planet. Items that can be dumped with the swing of a peddle-bin lid are often the main culprits of ocean pollution.
If your friends and colleagues can’t bear the thought of a cold drink without a straw, grab them a reusable metal version for their cup.
Wiping our desks may be good for our conscience when it comes to germs, but not the planet. Try and opt for a washable, old-fashioned jay-cloth.
Lined with a plastic film, these are often non-recyclable. Encourage a bring-your-own-cup-policy, and incentivise with rewards.
Crisps, small biscuits, and healthy snacks often come in a crinkly packet that is probably not recyclable. Fruit and veg are not only healthier but also kinder to the planet.
Paperless is the way to go when it comes to both your business and personal life. So, many of us have grown up jotting down sticky notes and writing memos, but keeping it short and sweet on email or via messaging is the best way to go from now.
If your business spends plenty of time at industry fairs and conventions, then try and put your giveaways in a paper goodie bag. Many brands ensure that their versions are biodegradable as well as recyclable.
For rooms that don’t need to be fully-lit all the time, why not try motion sensors? Communal rooms, such as bathrooms, could just make do with an energy-saving motion sensor.
Many people have taken up a meatless Monday or two in their personal regime. So, why not expand this to two or more days? Whether it’s in your family kitchen or office, encourage a no-meat policy for one or more days a week.
