It’s important that we all recognize the effects of climate change. The environment is our only home, it takes care of us and now it’s our turn to take care of it.
Over half of our lives are spent working, making it even more critical that we implement an environmentally friendly initiative in the office (that definitely doesn’t mean it’s the only place you should implement them).
I’ve compiled a list of the 5 most applicable items, but you should take the time to check out these green initiatives for yourself!
1. Toiletry Bag
This toiletry bag is perfect for so many things outside the office, like cosmetics and toiletries, but it can double as a lightweight briefcase holding in your purse housing all the essentials like pens, pencils, and a notebook.
This easy to use toiletry bag is carefully handmade using premium recycled washable paper which is a sustainable leather alternative.
It also comes in an array of colors for you to choose from!
This backpack is about as far away from a typical backpack as you can get! Its innovative and vegan design is made with all cotton.
It’s roomy and perfect to hold your laptop, some notebooks, and even your mini travel rollup! This versatile backpack can help you consciously take action and go green!
This ecofriendly watch is made out of used skateboards and comes in a variety of colors. It has a modern design with a numberless clock face and simple framing.
The skateboard material is solid but extremely lightweight, making this piece durable and comfortable for everyday wear. This watch will last you a long time, reminding you all the time to stay green and sustainable!
The origami table lamp is a funky and fun earth-friendly light source that can make a comfortable home on your work desk or anywhere in your work area. It has a super unique, geometric design modeled after origami and is made out of banana plant trunks.
The banana plant trunk helps to reduce the effects of deforestation and is a plant that rehabilitates itself naturally after harvest, how much more sustainable can you get!
These reusable cotton wipes are machine washable and come in a variety of different colors. They’re nifty and can really replace any one-time use cloth or facial tissue you might keep on your desk. You can even use these bad boys to clean up around your workspace with a sustainable twist!
I can’t stress enough how critical it is that we all recognize the debilitating effects that we have had on the world. With our society implementing more and more green initiatives it’s time for us to take the sustainability to work with us.
I hope this list has inspired you to find ways to go green in and out of the office.
