2. Replace any harsh or hazardous chemicals
Green cleaning products should not be hazardous. Research and understand the labels and ingredients on each product. This helps to evaluate which chemicals are best to use. Look for ingredients that reduce impact on the environment.
3. Use equipment that supports sustainability
Sustainable equipment is produced in a way that is not harmful to the environment and is often made from recycled materials. This means that the equipment can be energy efficient, durable, and require low maintenance. Investing in such equipment is a great benefit to your business.
4. Introduce plants to the office
Adding plants into the office environment can help to clean the air. Plants absorb indoor air pollutants and increase the air humidity. Air humidity increase can improve respiratory efficiency and skin health. Plants have many benefits to not only improve the environment but your health as well.
5. Identify the areas of opportunity to switch disposable items to reusable and paperless
Take a look around the workspace and notice any disposable items you see. Most likely, a good amount of those can be replaced to reusable items or changed into a paperless method. Make a list of these items and get creative with new ways to go paperless or to reuse certain office supplies.
