The Environment, It’s Everybody’s Business
The use of natural resources such as wood, oil, and metals in the manufacturing of goods comes at the cost of the environment.
Your workplace can have a significant impact on the environment, both positively and negatively. Your employer’s environmental practices when it comes to things like heating and cooling the building, and recycling may seem pretty minor in the grand scheme of things but imagine yours plus thousands of others all doing the same.
The Snowball Effect
The snowball effect is a powerful one when it comes to environmentally friendly practices in the workplace. Why not suggest recycling and reducing your waste in the office if this isn’t already being done? Or bring in more energy-efficient devices such as LED lighting. Once one or two people are on board, you’ll likely find more and more of your colleagues championing greener habits – that’s the snowball effect.
Speaking of snow, climate change can increase snowfall. Although this may seem like good news for that snow angel you were planning on creating, huge changes in the weather can result in many problems.
