Hip Hip Hooray for Planet Earth! Today is Earth Day – A chance to show our world your appreciation by doing a little less of something! This year’s ‘party theme’ is Climate Change. Every little thing we all do to reduce our carbon footprint this afternoon can have a massive cumulative effect. So let’s think Green from now to 6pm. Here are some options:
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Wait! Before you hit that Print button, Think… Do I really need a hardcopy of this? Could i get by with a b&w rather than colour copy?
Wait! Before you bin that styrofoam water cup, Think… Could i use this again today? Answer: Yes!
Wait! Before you scrunch up that draft document and toss it in with general waste, Think… How about we start using a paper recycle box/tray?
Most workplace air-conditioning could be set two degrees cooler now that summer is approaching. You’ll keep a pleasant temperature while considerably reducing your energy waste.
Encourage your colleagues to report dripping taps/leaking pipes. Preventable water loss is a huge drain on our planet’s resources – stopping it on small scale is a giant step in the right direction.
Replace incandescent bulbs for compact fluorescents, install light sensors in places that are sporadically used and switch off equipment at the end of the day. Shrink your footprint as well as your electricity bill.
Choose Greener Plants
At Mummie Plants we always think green – Our business depends on it. Companies wanted a lower-maintenance alternative to ordinary office plants so we came up with naturally-preserved plants. Our plants require zero-maintenance so are ideal for cutting down your carbon footprint. They need no specialist contractors to take care of them: meaning fewer unnecessary vans on the roads and less air pollution. Mummie Plants don’t need light so you won’t need to invest in special lamps. They don’t need warm temperatures either (above 10°C is enough) so cooler heat settings won’t bother them in the slightest. Not only that but you won’t need to use any water, fertilisers or pesticides on them.
All of which makes Mummie Plants the ideal Earth Day gift for your office! Want more information? Call us on 01 296 4540 and arrange a visit to our showroom to find out how business plants can help you.
