Encouraging your employees to substitute driving to work with biking to work has numerous benefits for everybody involved. As an employer, your goal is to supply your team with a rewarding environment that promotes the best possible work conditions.
Adding bike racks to the outside of your office building and outlining the advantages of commuting to work by bike provides your staff with the information needed to make an educated decision on how they can best help themselves and the company they work for. Make the transition easy by providing your staff with safely located outdoor bike racks allowing secure storage without interrupting the workplace.
Recycling and trash containers have been seen together for decades in schools and other public places.
But those of us who grew up in earlier decades can remember when those same containers didn’t always stand out with stylish designs. Some people might remember when trash containers were simply plain-looking metal containers that blended in with school backgrounds. During those times, recycling containers didn’t even exist in most schools.
Nobody said recycling and trash containers have to look ordinary just because garbage isn’t fun to look at. In today’s time, a stylish recycling container can even bring a reminder to students about the importance of going green, no matter where you are.
Everywhere you look today you find references to “going green” and “reducing your carbon footprint”. While solar energy or composting are obvious ways you can go green, there are other, less noticeable ways, that you can help our planet even when making your school furniture buying decisions.
Eco-friendly furniture is designated as such because of a more environmentally responsible manufacturing process or the furniture is made in a way that means it does not make a negative impact on indoor air quality. Our “green” furniture is approved by The Greenguard Environmental Institute which is a non-profit organization that certifies materials and products that meet their strict standards for emissions. Additionally, the Greenguard Children and Schools program works to ensure that products used in daycare centers and schools meet the most rigorous standards available.
If you’ve shopped for school furniture or educational furniture in the last 5 to 10 years, you’ve probably noticed the Greenguard Certified logo found on a growing number of furniture products. But do you wonder what that really means? And maybe you even wonder if it’s worth worrying about? Well, this segment that recently aired on ABC’s Good Morning America show reveals that you really should be concerned with the furniture products that are in your classroom or home.
