When we moved into our new San Francisco office last March, we seized the opportunity to make our office more earth friendly. Enter the Green Team! This dedicated group of LLS staffers examined all the ways we could reduce our office footprint and came up with some great solutions. Here we are, a year later, with a successfully transformed office! (I can tell you, we all think twice about throwing anything in the landfill bin in the kitchen.)
Here’s some of the ways we are implementing the three “R’s:”
- Printing day-to-day business on reusable paper. We even got surplus letterhead donated to us from our printer.
- Separating office waste into Compost, Landfill and Recycling. And educating the staff and volunteers on what goes where.
- Just recycling bins at each desk. The only landfill bin is in the kitchen and you have to walk your trash to it.
