5 Tips to Make a Positive Impact on Our Planet for Earth Day

As a business committed to the best possible environmental outcomes, we’re passionate at Helia EHS about helping our clients and partners embrace sustainability. For Earth Day this year we’ve put together 5 simple tips for making a positive impact on our planet:

1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle:

It’s the golden rule of sustainability! Cut down on waste in general including reducing single-use plastics, reusing materials whenever possible, and recycling everything that can be recycled. Install separate bins at your workplace like we have done in the Helia offices for landfill, recyclables (including for the container deposit scheme) and a worm-fed composting facility.

2. Energy Efficiency:

Small changes can lead to big savings. Encourage businesses to switch to energy-efficient lighting (like Helia), appliances, and machinery. Simple steps like turning off lights and equipment when not in use can also make a significant difference.

 

3. Green Transportation:

Encourage employees to ditch the solo car trips and embrace eco-friendly commuting options like carpooling, biking, or public transportation. Not only does this reduce carbon emissions, but it also promotes a healthier lifestyle and wellness amongst your team. Start a ‘green transportation’ challenge for one month and offer an incentive to get everyone involved.

 

4. Support Local and Sustainable Suppliers:

Encourage businesses to prioritise sourcing products and services from local suppliers where possible, who prioritise sustainability. Whether it’s office supplies or construction materials, choosing eco-friendly options can have a ripple effect on the environment.

 

5. Educate and Engage:

Spread awareness and empower employees and community members to take action. Host workshops, a plant swap in your office, or lunch-and-learns for your team to educate them about environmental issues and inspire positive change.
