Keep reading this article and you will learn what to do for you to be eco-friendly at the office.
Take note that there are people who fail to be eco conscious because of fear. The fact is that, a greener fashion can be applied by anyone without any interruption to your regular routine.
1. Start with recycling. Instead of just opening your trash bin to place your soda can, you can stop for a moment and think of recycling it.
Recycling would be so much fun if your co-employees will take part. If your colleagues accept the idea, inform your boss to buy recycling containers for the activity. Just make sure that all your co-workers know what materials can be recycled and not.
2. The use of plastic utensils are not good to the environment, so it’s time for you to avoid such. You usually use plastic spoon and fork when buying lunch. The problem here is that these are not recycled. Instead of using plastic utensils, bring your own from home. Eco-friendly utensils are also available.
3. If you’re in the office, you should use coffee mug instead of paper cup or styrofoam cups. Coffee cups can save you from a lot of waste.
Coffee tastes a lot better when you know you’re having it in an eco-friendly manner. It will be a waste of money to use paper cups. This is a small but good way of reducing waste.
4. It is also ideal to have plants in your office. You will be amazed what your plant can provide. They can increase productivity, reduce your stress and increase your happiness level. With the many advantages that a plant can offer, it is your responsibility to take care of it.
When there is not enough sunlight coming in your office, then you just need to grow lights. These lights are a natural light so your plants can still grow.
These and still many more little ways you can do in order to keep our environment safe. Make sure to involve yourself in green activities.
