Make your Workplace Greener

  1. Reducing waste in your business saves money and resources, prevents clutter and makes for a better and happier workplace! For office waste reduction tips see Make a Greener Office

  5. Offer paper carrier bags but remember customers may not always want a carrier bag, so always check
  6. If you serve food, work through your purchasing, storage and serving processes to establish where food waste can be avoided
