Tomorrow, April 22, is the 41st annual Earth Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness and appreciation for the environment. We think it’s a great time to encourage and support practical efforts to help protect the planet. Every little bit counts, and it’s easier than you think!
Encourage your workplace to get involved. It’s easy to recycle, reuse, and repurpose. Create recycling areas for all paper and plastic. Ask colleagues to reuse paper and print double-sided; you’ll reduce unnecessary waste and stretch your office supply budget at the same time. Eliminate plastic and Styrofoam waste in the break room by repurposing old dishes and utensils from home.
You can also support companies that offer products made from sustainable fabrics and manufactured with environmentally safe methods. Check out the soft, sustainable bamboo tops and scrub pants from Cherokee and IguanaMed. Do No Harm offers a line of high-tech workwear created from eco-friendly recycled textiles. And look to L.A. Rose for organic cottons that are easy on the environment.
