As the sustainability message grows, there are plenty of restaurants, hotels, resorts and wineries embracing eco-friendly policies, kitchen gardens, recycling, carbon offsetting and more. In fact, all business types are jumping on the sustainability and green bandwagon with effective recycling practices already the norm.
According to Planet Ark, however, one of the biggest issues for householders and hospitality businesses is food waste.
No matter how careful and proactive people are, there will always be some unavoidable food scraps such as vegetable peelings. Even here, people can reduce their impact by recycling food scraps for compost.
Another action that people and business managers can take is to ensure they are recycling items such as aluminium cans, food and beverage packaging, milk cartons, cardboard and paper in their recycling.
There are several public initiatives happening this year for National Recycling Week, including the Friday File Fling which focuses on recycling in the workplace and recycling unwanted files and paperwork, the Big Aussie Swap parties, and the Tetra Pak Schools Recycle Right Challenge.
Maybe it’s time your business jumped on board?
