As a family as well as a company. We take the whole Global warning thing very seriously.
So please don’t be offended if your party supplies come in recycled paper or packed with clean recycled cardboard. Not only does it save us money, which we can pass on to you, but it’s great for the environment too. So it’s a win, win situation.
I’m not claimming that our company is brillant at being green, but we are always on the look-out for ways to reduce our carbon – foot print.
Looking around the web for ideas to improve our companies greeness, I came across a few fellow Eco people. These are not hemp shirt wear, yurt living freaks, but normal people trying to do their best to care for the only world that can easily sustain life.
I would like to introduce them to you.
Tracy Smith Author of ”The book of rubbish Ideas” and the blog of the same name, which has over 15o thoughtfull Eco Articles on there. She came to fame during 2005 when Tracy organised National Downshifting week. Since then her fame has spread with her covering in her local press and radio.
Joe Newbury is a man after my own heart. He hates plastic bags his blog plasticbagwatch.blogspot.com sings the praises of using re-use-able bags. He caused a media storm back in 2007 when he tried to get his local town to go plastic bag free. Such a simple plan, with far reaching Eco goodness. Now 90% of the traders in that town want to get rid of plastic bags. Most of the big chains are starting to follow suit. They can see the money they will save, as well as the green Eco points they will get from their customers.
Last but by no means least Karen Cannard. Her blog therubbishdiet.blogspot.co.uk
Karen sprang into action when her local council organized a Zero waste week. she took the step of looking for foods when shopping without any packaging, or at least very little. I mean does a cucumber really need to be covered in plastic?
Karen’s blog has the tag-line Almost Mrs average. Which just goes to prove my point. I’m not talking about Eco freaks I’m taking about normal every day people, who care about our plant. after all it’s the only one we have. Once this one is broken, where is there to go?
It’s in all our best interest to make sure that we take care of the planet. It only takes a few moments to pick up the items from the shops with little or no packaging. It takes a moments thought to remember to take a cotton bag or two out when you go shopping. Walking to the shops for the mid-week little items, instead of taking the car takes a little longer, but if you use local shops, you’ll be supporting them too. All these little moments add up to one thing – great Eco living. By thinking Eco in our daily lives, both at work and at home, we can all make a difference. One big difference, that could help save our planet for our children, and there children.
