Going green: Become more sustainable at work
The battle against climate change comes in all different shapes and sizes but with one common denominator – saving the plant. Whether you’re an expert at going green at work or you’re keen to make your workplace more environmentally friendly. We at Evolution are constantly evolving in the workplace.
Here are some different ways you can help:
Everchanging your mindset and embracing change can be hard but setting fun monthly challenges with the team can be a good way to keep everyone motivated and reward success. Offer monthly prizes like office nibbles, coffee shop coupons or even recyclable /reusable products to help the cause!
Reduce And Reuse
Knowing plastic can take centuries to break down can make sustainability seem devastating but simple steps can help towards reducing waste. You can challenge yourself and inspire co-workers to remove single-use items like plates and water dispenser cups and instead invest in a reusable water bottle and create the habit of bringing your own cutlery into work.
Work can be very fast-paced and shutting down equipment at the end of the day can easily be forgotten, but by doing this simple task it can make a big impact and help your workplace become more environmentally friendly. Turn off computers, printers, photocopiers and other equipment that doesn’t need to be left on at the end of day and switch off the lights when you can and enjoy the natural light!
Having a digital document management system in place and ditching paper is more protected, can save time and is a good way to declutter the office. Many different businesses are quite onboard with this new way of working, but for some businesses this might not be an option to do so. If this is the case for your company, take some procedures by printing paper double-sided and only printing off documents when absolutely necessary.
Invest In Plants
Get closer to nature and add some greenery to your workspace. Indoor leafy plants can cleanse the air and help employees feel a lot happier at work. If you’re looking to create a stronger bond with the team on your sustainability mission, step up your indoor garden game and create your own potted evolving plants.
