Whether your business is a beginner to operating in a more eco-friendly method, or it has been implementing eco-friendly initiatives for years, it’s never too late to start being more conscious of your business’s environmental footprint. Perhaps you’ve never thought about everyday practices you can implement into your business’s daily routines to do your bit to reduce the burden on our planet. No matter your level of eco-friendliness, there’s always room for improvement, so we’ve compiled a list of 4 simple steps you can incorporate into your everyday activities – they’re simple, and Mother Nature will thank you for it.
1. Go Cold
(If applicable), go easy on your laundry water. Save precious energy by switching your washing machine to the cold setting, and if your washing machine allows it, opt for the “Eco” function, which saves on water.
Rather than throwing your customers’ food scraps in the bin only to end up in landfill, consider installing a compost bin. They needn’t be expensive and some councils even provide a subsidy on a compost bin. As a reward, you’ll end up with excellent, nutrient-rich mulch to nourish your garden!
3. The power of the sun
Ok, so this one is a big initial outlay, but harnessing the sun’s renewable energy to power your business (or at least hot water system) by installing solar panels is a great way to save all that precious energy.
4.Buy green packaging
