The Nature at Work Green Team has been embracing Planet Positive’s ‘first in, last out’ policy at work (and home)!!
It’s been Day Two of Nature at Work’s ‘7 DAYS TO SUSTAINABILITY’
– switching off machines and appliances overnight and weekends.
We’ve adopted the policy that the last person leaving a room is responsible for TURNING OFF and that includes printers, monitors, toasters and kettles at the wall. So because we work from home, even the family has got involved in this – with rewards for the children for every light they turn off when they leave a room!
We’ve also turned the heating down to optimum office temperature of 18C, adding an extra jumper if we’ve been chilly. Thankfully the weather’s turning a little warmer now!
