Are You An Environment Lover? If Yes, Then Here Are A Few Ways To Turn Your Desk Routine More 'Green'
So, our environmental-friendly readers, how dedicated are you towards saving the environment? Do you make sure that you contribute to saving the environment in every possible way that you can think of?
Well, if you are that kind of person, we have something that will help you spread that environmental feeling on your work desk too! Here we go:
9am: Grabbing Your Coffee
That coffee stops you take every day at your regular coffee shop on the way to your office may look like a small errand but let us tell you that it uses more resources than you think.
How about simply brewing your own coffee and filling your favourite travel mug? This also saves a lot of money a year if you consider it that way.
9.30am A To-Do List
Using those notepads and sticky notes to jot down each and every task and deadlines that you have to meet? How about you bring in some environment-friendly feeling here too?
Instead of using paper to make important notes, why not use online apps on your desktop and mobile to make this job easy and ‘green’. Todoist is one such to-do list app which you can easily use to make and share projects.
10.30: Replacing your plastic water bottles
Yep, instead of buying those transparent water bottles from that vending machine, why not get yourself a stainless steel bottle that will keep water cool and help you stay hydrated all day?
12.00am: Eating out and keeping that plastic away
Getting your lunch is the easiest way out! Plus given the fact that it is home-made, it’s healthy too. But if you cannot make your own lunch then what you can do is find a place that is certified green. These places use sustainable building materials and energy sources.
3.30pm: That much-needed dose of coffee
After spending a long hour in that meeting with the boss, you and your colleagues are hovering in the kitchen for that coffee. But have you ever thought how you can save the earth by replacing those coffee pods with biodegradable ones?
5.30pm: how much of a difference did you make at the end of the day?
Joulebug is an app that lets you track your impact and progress, give suggestions for acting more sustainably and start filly your Trophy Case. A great way to check how you’re doing.
