I'm an office worker from England, UK. I've recently been given the task to educate colleagues on recycling and stop wastage. I'm hoping you can help me in this journey, although please accept my apologies in advance as I have little knowledge in this subject myself and I'm still learning.
I can't say exactly where I work due to the nature of the job, but all I can say that this is a huge organisation with well over 10's of thousands of staff members working in offices up and down the country. Where I work, we are very limited in what we can do with IT equipment, for example we can't change the computer software/hardware as it's controlled by specialist IT contractors.
Some of the ideas I've come up with so far are:-
USING PUBLIC TRANSPORT
REDUCE PAPER WASTAGE BY NOT PRINTING, BUT INSTEAD VIEWING DOCUMENTS ON MONITORS DIRECTLY
SWITCH OFF COMPUTER MONITORS WHEN NOT IN USE
BTW, my tasking in recycling education isn't just about work, but we also need to educate staff how they can change attitude at home too. So in order for me to have a maximum impact, I need to create a poster or magazine article which shows how our electronics end up in 3rd world countries. Any help and ideas would be much appreciated.
