Greenify Your Business: It’s In The Can

October 15, 2008

Greenify your office in the most obvious way possible: get out those recycling sorting bins.  You need them to Greenify. And set a tone. Put them out where everyone can see you are Going Green.  Slightly messy?  All the better.  Shows folks you are using them.

Have you ever gone into a business carrying a can of soda that you finished on the premises and when looked around for the recycling bin, there weren’t any?

I have, and to be quite honest, I’ve been a little shocked.  In fact, I was so shocked that I have carried that can right back out with me in order to find the right place to recycle it.  With all the talk about the energy required to produce an aluminum can being enough to fuel a light bulb for an entire year, why aren’t we all recycling now?

No, we’re not.  And it’s so easy.  The bins are easily available in most office supply stores, or you can make them on your own by simply designating bins for aluminum, plastic, and paper.  Put the plastic and paper out on the curb in your local region’s recycling bins and consider taking the aluminum cans to be recycled at the local aluminum plant.  You might find your recycling byproduct (cash!) will provide enough “fuel” for a little company party every month or two.

There’s nothing like recycling grumpy employees with breakfast brought in or a spot of cake in the afternoon, right?  And think how impressed your customers will be with your efforts to Greenify your little corner of the planet!
