Steps you can take outside the office to help the environment…
food shop online
Having groceries delivered can cut carbon dioxide emissions by at least half, compared to driving to the shops. It’s the equivalent of carpooling, but for food.
Refill your own containers at any refill bulk buying shop that will have recently opened in your local city or town centre. You'll be supporting your local economy at the same time.
your food waste
Composting your food waste is a cheap and natural way of turning your kitchen and garden waste into a nutrient rich food for your garden.
Recycling rubbish decreases landfill waste and reduces emissions. Why not consider recycling clothes, toys and books by donating to charity shops too.
A plastic bag is used for an average of 12 minutes and most are non-biodegradable.
