conscious organisations’ will also be looking at how they can make their
operations more sustainable. This can have tax relief benefits and improve the

resolutions you can make that will lessen your impact on the environment.
- Start recycling the un-recyclables of your workplace
recycling is a good way to cut down on the amount of waste that ends up in
landfills, a lot of what an office or retail outlet throws away cannot be
recycled in traditional channels. This is where the different start-up
recycling companies come in.
With these businesses you can dispose of waste that
includes but is not limited to: crisp packets, sweet wrappers, pens,
toothbrushes, coffee bags and drinks bottles. If you can start to recycle these
goods you will cut down on your waste costs. Next up, how organic jute bags
could reduce your waste as an office or retail store.
organic jute bags to cut down on the plastic pollution
Getting a grip on your company’s baggage policy is one of
the key parts in reducing your waste. If you are an office based business,
encouraging employees to opt for, say, organic cotton bags over single use
plastic ones is an easy step you can take to start cutting down on the plastic
in your workplace.
Equally, if you are a retail store then one of the key ways
you can make your business less environmentally damaging is through introducing
reusable bags as part of your product offering. An organic jute bag is perfect
as it can be reused again and again by your customers spreading brand awareness
and taking away the damaging polythene products.
more cycle to work schemes and public transport
In addition to introducing more recycling and reusable
organic jute bags in the workplace, another way you can cut back on
environmental degradation is through creating a cycle to work scheme. These
have been proven to increase productivity and have a real impact on the amount
of carbon emissions that are released through car transport. If this is not
realistic for your business, incorporating a public transport scheme will also
help make you a greener organisation.
- Try and find ethical companies for your business supplies
Cooperation is essential when it comes to improving your
businesses impact on the environment and part of this cooperation is finding
ethical suppliers to partner your business with. Whether you are looking for a
recycling business or a supplier of quality organic jute
bags, always try and go
into business with organisations’ that take a proactive approach in lessening
their contribution to climate change.
