In recent years, the world has started to pay more attention to the plight of the planet. From the pollution in the world’s oceans to the climate change crisis, the vast majority of people agree that a lot more must be done if we are to keep the planet alive and well in the next few decades.
We can see how bleak the future could be with many of the recent weather disasters we have seen over recent years. As individuals we can all do a lot to help with the effort to clean up the planet, but as a business owner there is also a lot that you can do to ensure that your business is as green as possible, whether you have a large business or a small one, it all counts.
Consider how staff travel to work – Using a car is known to be bad for the environment – can you start an office carpool? Not only would it help with pollution and congestion, but also save staff money on petrol. Or set up a cycle to work scheme – make it easier for staff to store bikes at work.
Set up a ‘Green Team’ – Getting all the staff involved and interested in recycling in the workplace is a great way to encourage a positive approach to recycling. A service such as this business recycling Cheltenham based company will also be able to help you with your recycling.
Consider using suppliers that are also environmentally friendly – Using products and services that are also striving to be as green as they can as well as using sustainable products, producing less waste or using materials that are less damaging to the environment is a great way to support the green future of business.
