Blue Planet 2 Challenge
This year we have set a company-wide challenge to create a more sustainable office environment. It involves us all, thinking carefully about what packaging we use, how we place orders and how we purchase and use products. We have set individual and office targets to combat plastic waste with small financial sanctions imposed if we stray from our goals! A compositing bin has been added, re-usable coffee cups purchased, monthly stationary orders implemented and of course all paper waste continues to be recycled. Small steps, but positive environmental gains.
Later on in the year we will gather up our family members and participate in an organised beach clean with our cycling enthusiasts donning their lycra and cycling to the coast. We will be cleaning at Holkham Beach at the end of September and recording what we collect and how much we collect over a 100m section of the beach. The results will then be sent to the Marine Conservation Society and form part of their national Marine Litter Survey.
As we progress our challenge, we will post and tweet regular updates.
