5 ways to make greener choices at work & for your business

There are many things you can do to make your workplace and life more eco friendly. And you don’t even have to spend a lot of money. We have compiled a list with top tips to take active steps toward conserving our planet for future generations.

Go paperless

When possible, go paperless. If it is possible get receipts emailed to you. Instead of printing and filing store information on the cloud, and of course, always back it up. If you cant go paperless completely, recycle it afterwards.

Use Green Apps

Most of us spend a lot of time on our smartphones, and you may find it useful to have apps to remind you to recycle and create more green habits. A perfect app for this is Oreoco– a fun and rewarding way to creating greener habits. It tracks your carbon footprint and helps you save money as well as the planet.

Choose reconditioned tech

Don’t fall into the trap of always getting the latest model of everything. Other options are buying refurbished products, such as laptops and phones. Websites like CEX offer high quality refurbished tech products for reasonable prices.

Use eco-friendly search engines

Ecosia is a social engine like Google, except the uses the ad revenue from your searches to plant trees. If you’re looking to go to websites such as Amazon or Facebook it may be worth switching from your regular search engine to Ecosia.

Work remotely

Remote working can help reduce air pollution. During the lockdown, most companies had to adjust to working from home. As more businesses are opening back up companies are offering flexible remote working. Companies realised they can function normally without requiring employees to be physically present. Thanks to new tech apps such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams employees can collaborate in real-time.
