Help Your Office Go Low on Waste
How to Go Low Waste In the Office
Slowly but surely, our culture is moving toward sustainable practices. Science has made it clear that climate change will have tremendous negative effects on our world if we don’t work to neutralize our climate footprints. We also know that halting climate change in its tracks will take heavy lifting from all of us.
If we only live sustainably at home, we’re losing out on 40 hours a week where we could be making a huge difference in the world. Implementing environmentally friendly practices in the office helps employees continue the sustainable practices they’re already doing at home and to create lasting habits. One of the most effective things you can do as a company is to reduce office waste.
Reasons to Go Low Waste
What are the benefits of reducing waste in business? There are so many possible changes to make to build a sustainable office environment. Here are some reasons why going low on waste at work is a great move for your company:
- It’s relatively simple to incorporate into office life. Going low waste requires little to no new equipment for your office, that is unless you want to invest in recycling or compost bins.
- It reduces the cost of supplies, including packaging and paper.
- You can meet customers’ desire to support an environmentally friendly, low-waste business.
- Your company can save on waste disposal fees.
- It’s good for the planet! Less plastic coming from your office means less plastic in the ocean. That’s a win!
