Green Alternatives to Summer Predicaments

From the Printware Blog on Friday 5th June 2015 in Environment, News

Whilst summer is, for the most part, a well-loved season, unfortunately working in an office can bring about a couple of predicaments that can make it, well, unbearable. This is especially the case if you’re trying to juggle staying comfortable with staying true to your green credentials.

So, if this summer, you’re concerned about how green your employees are being, as well as wanting to ensure the office is kept cool and calm, read on.

Below www.printware.co.uk have compiled some green solutions to summer predicaments.

If you can’t take the heat…

Staying Green

Here in the UK, we tend to have a love-hate relationship with the summer heat. However, for those that work in offices, you will know all too well how uncomfortable it can make us. So, what’s the solution? Many will immediately reach for the air-con remote, but stop and think about the energy it is using first.

It goes without saying that air-con in the office isn’t the most energy-efficient option nor is it too kind to the environment when it comes to electricity usage.

Now, whilst there is the option to open the window, it is likely that insects will find their way into the building, which, of course, will result in bug spray. This isn’t too good for the environment either, so what can we do to ensure we stay cool (and green) this summer?

Swap it for a battery-operated or USB fan!

These fans a great for a light breeze, and can be placed on your desk to offer a greener, more energy-efficient method of cooling down. Plus, they are affordable, meaning you don’t have to let your pocket suffer in the process. Call us to find out more.

Recycled Goods

Recycling has become a big part of today, with many continuing their green habits, little by little, by recycling anything and everything they can. However, there are still offices around the UK that have a ‘will do later’ attitude towards maintaining an eco-friendly workplace. If this sounds like yours, it’s time to go green and recycle.

Of course, recycling cans and paper isn’t the only way to be kind to the environment, as purchasing goods that have been upcycled is just as fantastic. Here at Printware, we offer a range of recycled paper and remanufactured cartridges, so you can evolve your office on an eco-friendly scale.
