Environmentally Friendly Business Solutions

Whether you’re running a small or large company, there are so many ways that you can make your place of work more environmentally friendly. I’ve outlined some of the major changes you can make below. But even if you cut down on letters, and send emails instead, you’ll be taking a step in the right direction. The earth is in a particularly fragile state at the moment and whether you believe in climate change or not, the amount of plastic in our oceans is a giant cause for concern. Taking steps to help the environment in your place of work is a sure fire way to do your bit and reduce your carbon footprint a little.


Packaging is one way to cut down on our plastic usage in the workplace. For many companies, especially those who provide food and perishable services, plastic wrapping is used on almost a daily basis. To combat this, you could switch to paper packaging. Offered by Focus Packaging, paper packaging can offer a similar solution to your packing needs.

Cut Down on Paper

Another thing we majorly waste here in the UK is our paper. If your print of a lot of documents, one way to help the environment is by creating a digital archive. Scanning your documents onto your server ensures a digital backup for your files, and means that documents can be forwarded on to members of staff and customers should you need to. If you still need to use paper, ensure you recycle where you can.

Ditch Plastic

If you have a water cooler in your place of work, why not buy glasses for customers and staff members to use? These can be washed after use, and means less plastic waste on the whole. Many offices that use plastic water cups waste, on average, 40% more plastic than offices that do not. It also saves you the expense of buying more plastic cups when you run out.

Solar Paneling

If you’re looking for a major change, then solar paneling could be the change for you. Not only does this save you in energy bills, but you’re using natural resources to power your business! There are so many solar panel companies out there at the moment, so make sure you do your research before settling on one.
