Happy Earth Day, afrOkaans tribe! Today is a day to reflect on our planet and the impact we have on it. To mark the occasion, we have come up with some office event ideas that can inspire you and your colleagues to make a difference.
One of the easiest ways to make a difference is to turn off lights and monitors when they are not in use. It may seem like a small change, but it can have a big impact on reducing energy consumption. Another way to reduce our environmental footprint is to reduce paper usage. We live in a digital age and can embrace it by utilizing digital tools instead of printing documents.
Recycling is also a great way to reduce waste in the office. We can introduce food and packaging recycling bins to the office kitchen and pledge to ban single-use plastic. By using reusable water bottles, we can eliminate the use of plastic water bottles in the office.
If you and your colleagues want a fun outdoor activity, consider organizing a litter-picking afternoon at a local park. You can also start an office community garden if you have green-fingered colleagues who can help get things going.
Fundraising for local environmental causes is also a great way to make a difference. You can organize an office bake sale, raffle or quiz and donate the proceeds to EarthDay.org. Alternatively, you can volunteer and participate in local activities such as community clean-ups.
Our tribe is currently in production with a new children’s reality show called ‘Nature’s Little Heroes’ for a Canadian Broadcaster. In the series, we meet kids who will tell us about their favourite animal and how we can help the environment and help save our planet!
Finally, let’s not forget to get out there and embrace nature! Take a walk and notice everything our beautiful planet has to offer.
Let’s all work together to make a positive impact on our planet, not just on Earth Day but every day! #EarthDay2023 #SustainableLiving #SaveThePlanet
