28 Apr 4 Easy Ways To Be More Eco-Friendly in Your Green Bay & Northeast Wisconsin Workplace
With Earth Day being in April, it’s natural for businesses in the Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin area to be considering their carbon footprint. Being “green” can mean many things, such as making large efforts with building materials and processes. However, small changes can also have a big impact on sustainability. Here are some simple steps any Green Bay or Northeast Wisconsin workplace can do to be a bit more eco-friendly.
1. Have Onsite Food and Drinks
2. Use Water Refilling Stations and Filtration
Although everyone tries to recycle, single-use water bottles still end up in landfills. Reduce the use of single-use water bottles by offering water refilling options to your employees and customers.
3. Brew Fairtrade Coffee and Tea
Many of the products you use everyday have sustainable alternatives. BE’S Refreshments offers a superior office coffee service program that includes roasts and teas certified to be plant-friendly. Choose coffee varieties that have a Fairtrade label. This means the coffee producers guarantee to pay coffee farmers fair wages and help with community improvements. In addition, coffee and tea farming techniques are sustainable, with less serious impact on the environment than other forms of coffee and tea growing.
4. Promote Your Partners
One final step to helping your Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin company be more sustainable is promoting the efforts of your service providers. For example, at BE’S Refreshments all our Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin Vending Machines include energy saving technology. One example is the LED lights we install. These lights use less energy and are less detrimental to the environment than old fashioned fluorescent tubes.
