Going Green at Work


Recent unexplainable climate changes signal that our negative impact on the environment is going to strike us harder. It is time to act and there are several pretty simple and effortless things to do. Environmentally-friendly behaviour should be encouraged by employers. The choices we make now will either destroy or save the planet.

First, be bright about light. This means to carefully use light at the offices. It should be a habit to turn off lights when leaving a room. Make a better use of natural light when possible. The type of lightbulbs that are bought is very important. Compact fluorescent bulbs use several times less electricity and in addition last much longer.

Going paperless can significantly contribute to reducing our impact on the environment. Store online instead of writing on a sheet of paper. Even short notes could be saved on the computer. A sensible solution is to distribute information, employee manuals, payment notifications and other similar material online. Offices in UK store 90% of their information on paper, which is certainly one pretty negative statistic.

Recycling is maybe the most significant thing that can be done to contribute to the environment. Make it a habit to recycle every single paper that your company collects. Place recycling bins in accessible, high-traffic areas and provide clear information why this is necessary and what kind of materials can be recycled and what cannot.

Contact a company, such as Office Cleaning London, that offers ecologically-friendly services. Chemical based cleaners pose a threat to the environment. Natural cleaning products are offered to help minimize the use of toxic substances in your home, and reduce the environmental harm caused by the manufacture, use and disposal of toxics. Office Cleaning London’s ecological commitment is certainly a feature that differs them from other cleaning service providers.
