One afternoon last year, as we were trying to fit all our plastic bottles into our recycling box, we decided enough was enough and embarked on a mission to drastically reduce our plastic bottle usage in both our offices.
As many of our employees drink sparkling water, we were previously providing bottled still and sparkling water to ensure they were kept hydrated throughout their workday. This however resulted in us generating an enormous amount of plastic waste, something we knew we needed to tackle asap.
We asked our office team to put their heads together, and after reviewing our monthly consumption and researching alternative options, we implemented some changes which proved so successful, we even got a special prize at last year’s Go Green Business Awards, involving a water audit for our Bristol office.
Go Green also asked us for a more in depth study of how we went about solving our plastic bottle challenge, if you would like to read it, you can do so right here!
