Is your company looking for ways to clear out your waste without increasing your carbon footprint? Being eco-friendly can be hard when it is in your own home, but when you are trying to achieve the green business dream it can be even harder. So whether your looking to hire a Skip in Northampton or Recycling in North Wales or or your simply just looking for ways to reduce the waste at your business, this article has you covered!
Reuse and repurpose items. There are many areas of your business where you can use the reuse or repurpose strategy. If you have items that need shipping invest in green packing materials. These are packing materials that are made from recycled materials and also easy to recycle. It can be as simple as cutting documents that are not confidential and would otherwise be thrown away into notepads. The paper can be double used before it is recycled. It can also mean repurposing furniture for a new use or investing in refurbished furniture (like the hammock stands – konservatory.co.uk).
Refurbished electronics often work just as well as the new ones but cost between 50% and 70% less than new products. While a refurbished computer may not be your speed, reused ink cartridges will go a long way towards being eco-friendly, they will save you money and they work just as well as the new ones.
Recycling is another great way to get rid of your rubbish in an eco-friendly way. Most waste companies already handle recycling so if your business does not currently have recycling picked up then call your waste company to set it up. There are also metal recycling services you can contact if your company has scrap metal waste. If recycling is set up then make it easy for people to do by placing well marked recycling bins anywhere that there is a trash can.
Institute a companywide composting programme. This might take some work to educate all of your team members on how it is done and why it is important, but with a little effort you can get everyone on board and make a great step towards helping the environment. Think about it, work waste bins are filled with the remnants of people’s lunches, coffee grounds and tea bags all of which make excellent composting materials. By hooking up with a local school or growing project that can use the resulting soil, your company is helping the environment and your local community.
Find a local electronics recycling programme. By recycling your used electronics your company provides materials that can be reused for repairing and building electronics, you reduce your company’s carbon foot print, and you help the economy.
