Going green in your business is not only important to help save resources, it often means a savings in costs that you didn’t expect. Since both these things are positive, there is really no reason for not making at least some changes towards sustainability, whether you run a small SEO business or a coffee shop.
Here are 5 ways to go green in your business –
Saving on water usage is easy.
Install low-flow toilets
Fix dripping taps or leaking cisterns
Choose low-flow taps and shower heads.
If you have an outdoor area to maintain, use drought tolerant plants and mulch to prevent soil drying out. Install irrigation with a sensor so water is not wasted.
If you clean with a hose, use a high pressure washer because it will use less water
Waste reduction in the office
In the office kitchen use bulk supplies of condiments rather than single serves, which are way more expensive.
Encourage employees to bring refillable water bottles and their own coffee mugs, instead of using bottled water and plastic mugs.
