If you do not currently take environmental factors into consideration at work or at home, now is the time to start doing so. With UK landfills bursting at the seams, we all need to be doing our bit to keep as much waste as possible from ending up in landfill and there are so many ways you can help.
At home, keep two separate bins and clearly label waste and recycling. Familiarise yourself with what can and cannot be recycled and make sure all the household are aware of this too.
At work, try and reduce the amount of paper used and send emails out instead wherever possible. Make sure your team are all recycling as much as possible and when new office supplies are ordered, ensure they can be recycled later on when they are no longer in use.
If we all play our part and take action today, we can have a truly positive effect on the environment for tomorrow’s world.
