“Greening” the office can be lots of fun and stylish too! Above, I’ve shown a few products that you can be easily introduced and implemented into your workspace.
Not all towns or cities have recycling programs but you can usually find a low cost service that can do pick ups that accomodate your needs. If you’re in Vancouver, I’d like to recommend Happy Stan’s.
You can find a multitude of recycling bins online that will fit your office decor. The Ovetto Recycling Bin, shown above, is made from recycled plastic and offers 3 separate receptacles to make recycling easier and more organized while taking it a stylish step up from those standard blue bins.
Composting is new concept for a lot of us, especially us city dwellers without green space. The Nature Mill is the most “neat and tidy” composting system I’ve come across. It’s great for the office as it’s easy to use and best of all…there’s no odour! Check out their video demonstration here.
Did you know that it takes a normal plastic bag thousands of years to biodegrade? Green Genius Trash Bags have been tested and meet the ASTM D5511 standards for biodegradability. Their packaging is so beautiful that I’d likely buy them even if they weren’t 100% biogdegradable…I’m a bit of a sucker for packaging!
Have fun creating a green workspace. You’ll be surprised at how much you’ll minimize your “regular” waste once you’ve put these ideas in place!
