Items labeled "compostable" or "biodegradable" should go in the trash, not in your compost bin.Read More…
Set some waste-trimming goals for your workplace! Here are a few great places to start:
Does your workplace provide bottled water or use a water delivery service? Switch to tap water and you’ll be doing the environment, and your bottom line, a favor.
Don’t like the taste of your tap water? Installing a filter on your tap is a good alternative to having water trucked in.
Many workplace trash cans are filled with paper towels, especially in the rest room and break room. Paper towels can’t be recycled or composted, and even if they could, using less would still be best for the environment and for cost savings.
Disposable coffee cups, take-out boxes and plastic cutlery are like junk food – they’re quick and easy, but not that great for you (or the environment).
Thankfully, there are a lot of things you can do to cut down on disposable items. Use re-usable water bottles and coffee mugs, and take as little to-go packaging as possible when eating out.
