Spring is a great opportunity to improve sustainability around the office! Here are some great tips for reassessing your practices, and making them more environmentally friendly:
· Use Eco-friendly materials in the break room—the break room is one of the most wasteful places in the office. Countless cups, plastic cutlery, and paper plates are thrown away every day. Make your break room greener by using re-usable mugs and plates or purchasing biodegradable materials.
· Recycle your electronics—When old electronics are thrown away, they can leech toxins into the soil and water supply. The materials in recycled electronics will be reused in new ones. Visit the EPA’s website for a list of electronics recycling centers near you.
· Plant a tree—Planting is always a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, and make the world a lovelier place. Ticket Summit® recently planted the tree below, and will move it outside soon! If you’d like to receive your own TS sapling to plant, simple email firstname.lastname@example.org.
