The first thing you want to do to make the switch from your office environment to a more eco friendly environment is to consider some new products you want to purchase. Try to avoid a lot of plastic products. Most office’s don’t have recycle bins. When people purchase a lot of plastic materials, it ends up going to waste somewhere in the environment. You want to steer clear of plastic and try to find more sustainable stationary materials. Follow any green policies your office has in place. Try to stick with chemical free cleaning products.
Keeping an eco friendly environment can also make you more efficient in your work. It’s been proven that your environment can affect the way you work. There’s a link between people’s emotions and their work environment. You can tell a lot about a person based off of their environment (if they have a messy room vs a neat room, things like that). By keeping an eco friendly office environment, it can make you feel fresh and more productive. Make a change today! It’ll benefit you and the environment.
