Is your company making an effort to go green? There’s no better time than the present. With companies across the globe currently supporting remote work, employees are already adapting to a more sustainable way of living. Memos are being sent via email instead of printed out. Fewer people are using disposable paper coffee cups and plastic water cups. The fact is, this could be a great time to support your employees with an initiative to go green – just in time for the 50th annual Earth Day.
Reusable Water Bottle
A reusable water bottle is the ultimate in sustainable gifts. With the range of water bottles available now, there’s no reason for most people to be consuming water out of one-time use plastic bottles. Gifting your employees washable, reusable tumblers and giving them a place that they can refill them with filtered water is a great way to start a sustainability movement at work.
Reusable water bottles come in all different types of materials, shapes, and sizes now, including:
- Hard plastic
- Straw or screw top
Regardless of the type of water bottle or tumbler you choose, your employees are sure to love it – and so is the earth.
Canvas Tote Bags or Reusable Grocery Bags
Everyone likes to bring snacks to work. They’re what help get us through the day! Reusable tote bags and grocery bags are great for bringing snacks and other small odds and ends into the office. These make great gifts for not only your employees, but also trade show or conference guests.
Reusable bags allow people to carry around pamphlets and promotional products they get while attending events. Additionally, people are starting to use these regularly for all types of shopping trips to avoid getting disposable grocery or shopping bags.
Stone Paper Notebooks
There’s no such thing as too many notebooks or too many journals. While paper made from wood isn’t sustainable, paper made from stone is.
Not only is stone paper made from a more abundant resource, but it also prevents the use of dozens of other natural resources. In fact, stone paper reduces the amount of water used in production by 60 thousand liters and prevents 900 kg of carbon dioxide emissions. All-in-all, stone paper is incredibly environmentally friendly.
It’s also important to note that stone paper works just as well as paper made from wood pulp. It’s tear resistant, waterproof, and smudge proof, making it a great sustainable alternative.
Preparing for the 50th Annual Earth Day
Earth Day takes place on April 22nd. Celebrate this year by giving your employees or clients a sustainable and fun gift. It will mean twice as much right now while everyone is cooped up at home to receive something thoughtful and good for the planet.
