Sustainability is an important block on which L-S Industries was built. Here at L-S Industries, we take pride in providing a number of sustainable packaging products to companies of all industries and sizes. Together, this helps us (and you!) reduce the amount of plastic waste generated. However, why stop there? If you want to take your initiatives even further, here are a few ideas!
Three ways to reduce plastic waste in the workplace:
- Prominently display recycling containers throughout your facility.
Our sustainable recycling bins are available in two standard sizes, as well as in custom dimensions. Our recycling bins are the most cost-effective option for your business. They are lightweight and durable, with several lid options to best fit your needs. Their bright green color makes them easy to identify in an office, or any setting.
- Offer incentives to employees who bring and use reusable bottles.
Bottled water produces 1.5 million tons of plastic waste per year. Additionally, these bottles require 47 million gallons of oil to produce. And, how long does a plastic bottle take to decompose? On average, 450 years! Yes, you read that correctly. Four hundred and fifty years. By motivating employees to purchase a refillable, reusable water bottle, your company can lessen the number of plastic water bottles that end up in landfills and oceans.
- Install a sustainable water dispenser.
Say goodbye to single-use water bottles and start using a sustainable water dispenser to fill up your reusable water bottles. HydrationStation water features a touch-free, hygienic interface with a built-in filter. Sustainable water dispensers can save your company thousands of dollars on bottled water costs, all while maintaining an eco-friendly workplace.
Meanwhile, why not get your whole company together and make an event out of it? Here are a few more creative ideas to get everyone in your company engaged and on board.
- Host a “nude food” lunch.
Host a lunch where employees are encouraged to bring their lunch using no single-use plastics.
- Community service event.
Plan a day out of the office where employees come together and participate in a local service event that promotes sustainability. This can double as an opportunity for employees to get to know each other, all while boosting your company’s image.
