Ivymere finds strength...somewhere, somehow
We waste SO MUCH PAPER at work. I’m starting an area for recycled/scratch paper so for anything that doesn’t have to be formal, we can use scratch paper. Or we can recycle it later.
I’m also going to designate a recycling trash bin for the cans and bottles (and tell everyone that whoever wants to take them to the recycling center to cash in can do so). I’ll add two more little bins (one upstairs and one downstairs).
It’s not much and it’s very basic, but since we don’t have those implemented yet, I’m trying to implement slow, small changes.
We also have a water dispenser that we order gallons from this company called Menehune. Anyway, for years, the habit of my coworkers have been to purchase these tiny-ass cups (like one-sip worthy) to use for themselves so obviously they can go through these a million a day (okay I exaggerate, but you know what I mean). So I left a note asking that people bring their own mugs or bottles to try and keep the paper cups for clients only. Soon, I’ll convince my boss to give me a budget to actually buy customized bottles for everyone!
