As most of you are probably aware, all of us here at Sector are making a continual effort to stay green. In order to do so, we are always trying to come up with new ways we can do this. Here are a couple of newer initiatives we’ve implemented in the last while:
Shortened email signatures and footers:
We’ve adjusted our signatures and footers on all of our emails so that if and when we have to print out an email (which we are also doing less of), the full email prints out on as few pages as possible. You can do it too! It’s easy – take out as much space from your email signature as possible by adjusting the font size and only keeping in your pertinent information (i.e. name and direct contact information).
You can also add in some type of phrase (in smaller size font of course) asking that the reader only print out the email if absolutely necessary. For example, the bottom of my emails read: “Please consider the environment before printing out this email or any of its attachments.”
Homemade cookies (yum!):
We all know that our clients come here just for the cookies, never mind the training! So, to serve both the environment and you better, we are now starting to bring in freshly baked cookies from home at least once a month. This reduces the amount of packaging we are using up, saves money, and it doesn’t hurt that home-baked always seems to taste better than store-bought! Keep an eye out for a new future blog featuring our “Cookie of the Month” and corresponding recipe.
It’s always the little things that add up and any small part you can do to make your workplace (and home) just a bit greener can go a long way! If you have any suggestions on how we can make Sector even more green, send me an email!
