Magellan Solutions’ Tribe Members Join Voice War 2016
Magellan Solutions joins Infamous CeBIT Australia 2016
Once a year, companies participate in the celebration of Earth Day. There are social media posts on how to save the environment and posts that greet everyone with “Happy Earth Day.” Office activities like “Plant a Tree,” “Green Party,” and “Vegetarian Day” are held to celebrate the Earth Day spirit. But how many of these activities change the employees’ lifestyle into something greener? Here are ten ways to incorporate the green lifestyle in the office, even if it’s not Earth Day:
1. Go Digital. Print less.
Think before you print. Do you have to print that web page? Is it an absolute need to have those meeting agenda printouts? You can save that web page on your computer files or online storage. You can have a slideshow presentation for that meeting agenda so everyone can see and then email it to everyone present. There are other ways to be able to print less. Just think before you print. It’ll save your company reams of paper.
2. Use eco-friendly ink and ink-saving font.
So now you have a document that needs to be printed. Save more ink by using these fonts that use less ink: Ryman Eco, Calibri, and Century Gothic. These fonts are thinner but still readable. They also still look corporate. There are also eco-friendly inks made from non-harmful materials that make recycling paper easier.
3. Use reusable/refillable pens (recycled pens, too!).
Using refillable pens means using less plastic for the manufacturing of cells. You can also choose pens that are made from recycled material.
4. Have a more innovative trip.
If your office is not that far from your home, take a bike or walk to get to your office. Invite your officemates to do the same. You can also utilize public transportation, especially when driving alone. Aside from saving gas, you also improve your health. If you’re buying a new vehicle, choose the eco-friendly one.
5. Reduce energy consumption.
Be the excellent office guy who turns off the lights and adjusts his computer to power-saving settings when not in use. Start with yourself and encourage everyone in the office. The energy savings are more than what you imagine.
6. Conserve water.
Small things like turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth can save water consumption. Regularly check if there are leaks in the kitchen or the washroom. While being good to the environment, your company can also save money from paying expensive water bills.
7. Go for more reusables.
Without realizing it, ordering lunch and snacks through food delivery or takeout contributes to tons of waste on the planet. Encourage your coworkers to pack lunch and snacks in eco-friendly reusable containers instead. Also, always have these reusable containers handy for office parties. Find more opportunities where you and your officemates can use eco-friendly reusables instead of generating more waste by using lots of disposables.
8. Eat well. Feel good.
Live a healthier life by eating less processed or “junk food.” Manufacturing these kinds of food generates more waste, and some of these waste materials harm the environment. Choose healthier food options like vegetables and naturally prepared foods. You will not only make yourself more beneficial, but you can also contribute to improving our environment a9. Take the stairs.
If you’re just one floor away and not in a hurry, why don’t you take the stairs instead? Prevent sedentary lifestyles with this simple act every day.
Find every opportunity to recycle. Find ways to reuse whether it’s a used glass bottle, plastic container, or paper bag. Avoid the consumerist lifestyle and let your creativity flow.
