Green scene is the place to be seen

Litha Communications is once again showing its commitment to sustainability and its dedication to the protection of the environment by participating in the South African Green Office Week campaign (GOW), which runs from 16-20 April 2012. The campaign began in the UK with a vision to encourage:
  • Organisations to start seeing themselves as Eco-friendly Workplaces and develop green office practices and policies 
  • Management to implement and maintain sustainable practices into their workplaces 
  • Workers to take a look at the daily routines and realize the economic benefits of reducing waste.
This year’s theme is “You make a difference” and the  company is taking it to heart with a  go green plan that will incorporate intense and top of mind new clean, green action each day.

Daily themes
Based on this year’s daily themes, the company plans to do the following:

·        Monday 16 April: Make a difference by finding more ways to save on printing- Printing on both sides of the paper. If you fail plant a tree for every 20 pages printed

·        Tuesday 17 April: make a difference by finding more ways to save on lighting- Switch lights off in offices and meeting rooms that are not being used.

·        Wednesday 18 April: Make a difference by finding ways to drive green- Go easy on the air conditioner as it uses more fuel.

·        Thursday 19 April: Make a difference by looking for ways to recycle more- Cut scrap paper and bull-clip it to use as a notepad or cut in quarters and use as post-it like notes

·        Friday 20 April: Make a difference by sharing a green tip with colleagues and clients- At the bottom of your emails include a green message such as: Think twice before you print this email.

“These are simple and quick tips that can reduce the carbon footprint we are creating, the idea of eco-living and green offices are not new concepts at Litha but we are glad to see this is becoming a global movement,” says Teresa Jenkins COO of Litha Communications

 “The greatest gift we can give to the children of the future is to take care of the present”- Unknown
