Take Your Lunch To Work

  • Take a reusable, portable lunch box to work to avoid using cling film or purchasing food in unnecessary packaging. 

  • Avoid plastic cutlery and take a knife and fork with you. 

  • If you have an old ice cream or takeaway box, use that! 

  • According to The Guardian, in the UK alone, around 4 Billion takeaway sandwiches are purchased every year - that's 4 billion plastic packages thrown away from just sandwiches!

  • Pre-making your lunch will encourage you to stop buying fast food and it will reduce the amount of waste you create.

  • Making your own lunch also saves money. 

Encourage A Low-Waste Office 

  • If you can, walk to work and get yourself some pre or post work exercise. It will encourage those endorphins you need for the day!

  • If it's too far to walk, maybe cycle, skate, or get public transport instead of driving. 

Use Refillable Water Bottles

  • Plastic bottles make up a gigantic proportion of plastic pollution. Americans throw away an estimated 35 billion plastic water bottles every year!

  • By carrying a reusable water bottle, you will drastically reduce the number of bottles you purchase. 

  • Using your own bottle will save your money and the environment. 

  • When purchasing a reusable bottle, try and get yourself a metal one instead of plastic. This is better for your health as they do not contain BPA! 

  • You can choose from a wide range of bottles on our Eco-Friendly Product Page.

Stop Using Disposable Coffee Cups
