Green Business – save money and the environment. Go Green for 2015!
Today, our world is in more peril then it was ever before. It is exactly for this reason that we need to leave our petty differences aside and work together towards its salvation. Large corporations and public international resolutions and decrees play their role in this constant struggle, but there is another, more complex battlefield for the preservation of mother earth that exists today. This battlefield is individual and local one and is as important as the one aforementioned.
Before any major changes can happen, the first and the most important change that needs to take place is within ourselves alone. We must change our harmful everyday habits, no matter how important they are to us and start our long and weary journey towards the rejuvenation of our home planet. In order to start this crucial global change by influencing our way of doing things locally, why not start off your 2015 business as a clean and Eco-friendly one. Here are some ideas.
Deal with the energy issue
First of all, regardless of what kind of business you are into, energy is one of its most significant aspects of it both practically and financially. So why leave out on the opportunity to help both your planet and your business at the same time. There are two ways in which you can improve the energetic situation of your business and they are both equally important.
First way is saving energy. As simple as it sounds. Remove your regular light bulbs with LED ones and switch from high to low-energy consuming office appliances. In this way, you will not only save the environment but also save substantial amounts of money for both you and your company in the long run. You can also invest a bit in isolation of your business’ premises and in this way reduce the waste of heat, which will sub sequentially inevitably lead towards the reduction in your energy spending.
The other way to improve the relationship of your business towards the local and global energy situation is to try and switch to some of the more alternative and renewable sources of energy. In this way, you will not only improve your business but also make some real difference. Install couple of solar panels and just let the nature take its course. In no time, you will resolve your energetic situation in an innovative and effective way, while protecting your home planet at the same time.
Switch to Eco-friendly resources
If you are in the production or construction business, there is probably no better way for you to save the planet, than to resort to the use of many Eco-friendly material solutions that exist out there. Always try to use the supply of the material that exists in abundance locally. That you can reduce the pollution and the cost of the transportation or go for the materials that have great reusability. One of these ideas is using shipping containers as a construction material.
As it is a fact that there are 17 million shipping containers out there in the world, this means that in order to build a home out of containers no new limited resources need to be exploited. A win-win scenario. Many shipping container providers agree that another great thing about these containers apart from being a perfect construction material, you can make them completely customised to your needs. Furthermore, these containers have over and over again proved to be a highly adjustable, modifiable and extremely durable both as a construction material and as a temporary and permanent housing solution.
Recycle, recycle, and recycle again
The golden rule, and the most important word in the very process of the rejuvenation of earth is definitely represented in the notion of recycling. There is nothing more important than using all the available resources that we have in the best possible way. Utilizing our resources. So try to keep your business literally as much off the paper as possible. Use digital form whenever you can, and if you absolutely must use paper in any given situation, make sure to use recycled one. The recycling technology had advanced so much that most people can’t even tell the difference between the regular paper and the recycled one.
