Get Cracking on Earth Day Planning
Earth-Day is just around the corner and now is the best time for businesses to start planning Earth-Day events. Here are a few ideas to help start the brainstorming process for how your office can showcase its environmental initiatives.
Go Paperless on Earth -Day: Start a campaign to eliminate paper waste for an entire day. While this may be a lofty goal it can help people to pay attention to their paper usage around the office. You can even make it a fun challenge between floors or departments to see who can reduce their paper the most.
Pitch-In Canada: Help to clean up, restore and preserve Calgary’s environment by volunteering with Pitch-In Canada’s 2011 Operation Clean sweep.
Lug a mug campaign: Have everyone at work use a travel mug to help eliminate disposables. Give out prizes when ‘catching’ them in the act.
Commuter Challenge: Encourage employees to use environmentally friendly forms of transportation such as walking, biking or taking public transit.
Book a Waste @ Work: Learn how your office can reduce its environmental impact at work by booking this interactive presentation. Green Calgary is already getting requests from companies to present during Earth-Week and with Earth-Day falling on Good Friday we will book up quickly.
Contact James Emerson at 403.230.1443 Ext 227 to book your Waste @ Work presentation and for other great Earth-Day ideas.
