Use Recycled Materials
Paper and plastic are easy to find in recycled form. Switching over to recycled paper or plastic is not that hard and not costly. Companies can use the paper for everything from reports to their paper ads to the receipt tape. Plastic is used on hangers, bags, shrink wrap, etc. Just by using these materials the companies will decrease their footprint by not using new forms of waste.
Recycling is a culture and a mindset. In order to get people within the organization to recycle the company has to promote it. They don’t have to recycle everything, but a few containers in their facilities will go a long way in making people more aware of that culture.
Balers can be used for plastic too, not just cardboard. Use them for the plastic packing materials and save on the waste.
Even though there are a lot of up-front costs to installing new lighting systems, the ROI on these systems is relatively quick. Plus, they maintain low energy costs, which means higher profitability.
Skylights give natural light to facilities and help people enjoy a sunny day within the confines of the facility. Take advantage of not having to turn the lights on and waste energy.
