These Workplace Gives Will Have You Participating in Solutions

  1. Add a plant to your workspace. This could be a community lunch room, a reception desk, your own personal desk or where employees gather.
  2. Review and refine your workplace recycling routine. Check that your workplace has fine tuned their recycling. If changes are needed, discuss it with your management team or make small changes on your own.
  3. Use re-usable coffee and water containers – If you make coffee at work, dont use paper. If you get coffee to go, take your re-usable coffee mug. If you drink water ensure you are using a re-usable container or glass. Single use plastic just is not an option any longer!
  4. Take a walk outside on your lunch break. Enjoy the outside and what Mother Nature provides us.
  5. Buy locally, source locally. If the pandemic has taught us anything, buying locally and sourcing our items locally is smart for our communities and our planet!
  6. Sign an online petition. If you care about how our earth is treated, sign an online petition and see how you can create change. The Petition Site is a popular place to sign petitions that help our environment.
  7. Have a NO Trash Lunch Day! This is a fun way to look at how to pack your lunch differently. Or how to pick up your take out lunch in a more environmentally friendly way. You decide, but make it a no trash day for your lunch.
