Go Green for World Earth Day

To celebrate World Earth Day on 22nd April we are giving you our top tips on going green in the office. Small changes can make a big difference so the next time you’re in the office see how many you can check off this. list. 

1. Go paperless

Replace your paper forms, quotes and invoices with electronic alternatives. Most customers are happy to go digital so take the leap and save yourself some money while you save the planet. Consider whether you need to print, and if it has to be done, try printing double sided to halve the paper you use.

2. Save energy

This one sounds like a no-brainer but you’d be surprised at the little things we do without thinking that waste energy.

3. Choose green

Practice what you preach by choosing eco-conscious businesses when shopping. Whether that’s a green energy supplier or buying your supplies from local businesses who are doing their bit for the planet. Supporting local businesses will also save on emissions and unnecessary transport. 

4. Scrap plastic

Single use plastics are the bane of the environment. Bags, cutlery, food packaging…all of these can be replaced by biodegradable or recyclable versions. Better yet, branded bags for life, reusable cutlery and drinks bottles are a great source of revenue and a way to promote your business and your green efforts too!

5. Save water

Another one that seems obvious but there are small ways you can make a change.

6. Reduce, reuse, recycle

The mantra to help the environment. Reduce energy, single-use plastics, paper. Reuse where you can, from plates to boxes, these little things add up. Recycle print cartridges, paper, packaging, cans and bottles, electrical equipment, batteries, and so much more. 

7. Ditch the car

So this is more of a personal change than a business change but leaving the car at home can make a huge difference to our impact on the environment. Think about walking, cycling or taking advantage of public transport. Or if you can be without your car, try a carpool with colleagues who live nearby. 

8. Spread the word

Get all your staff, friends and family onboard to ensure you are all on the same green page! You should let your customers know they are buying from a company that is committed to making a difference. 

If you are a new startup or you’ve been in business a long time, hopefully these tips can help you on your way.
