Hello Corporates, Would you mind a New Year resolution that says no more pollution? If yes, you’ve reached the right place! Here we present you five green-worthy New Year resolution ideas that can be implemented in your corporate space.

They say “Sustainability starts with us, individually” but when sustainability gets originated through a community or society, it becomes a habit. Corporate companies represent a whole community and if there is proper guidance related to sustainable living, it could benefit the entire workplace, no matter what. So let’s get along with these 5 simple green-worthy New Year resolution ideas this year for corporate companies.

Refuse Plastic Straws, Reuse Metal Straws

500 million straws are used every day in the US. And these straws can live up to 200 years, without getting decomposed!  Ban plastic straws in your workplace, and make a difference. Multi-million dollar companies such as Starbucks, Hyatt and Hilton are following this trend from last year. So it’s not too late to join hands with large corporate companies in banning plastic straws.

But what about the straw needs, right? You cannot drink your Frappuccino with the help of an assault rifle. That is why we are introducing stainless steel straws for your corporate needs! Stainless steel straws are environment-friendly and are reusable. These straws can be categorized as long term investments compared to that of single-use straws. Replace plastic straws with metal straws and tell the world that you are contributing to a sustainable environment.

Go paperless or recycled paper


Nearly four billion trees are cut down every year to make paper! This represents about 35 percent of all harvested trees! This is resulting in serious deforestation. And it’s known that deforestation can cause erosions, climate change, and damages related to them. So where do these papers go? Obviously schools, corporate companies, newspaper print stations etc. Americans use 85,000,000 tons of paper a year, which is about 680 pounds per person. And it is estimated that an average employee uses approximately 10,000 pieces of paper every year!

From the workplace angle, this can be reduced. Corporate workplaces can either go paperless or use recycled paper as a solution to this problem. Digital papers can be used instead of regular ones. Manage documents digitally and reduce paper use.

No more plastic bottles!


More than 60 million plastic bottles end up in landfills and incinerators every day! And per year, a total of 22 billion! And statistics say that Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles last year!

Give up plastic bottles. Replace bottled water stations with a water refill station. This will reduce the usage of plastic bottles inside the workplace. Also, you can upgrade your promotional bottles! Instead of gifting logo imprinted plastic bottles to your employees, you can actually go for steel bottles or reusable tumblers.

Gift indoor plants for your employees!


Indoor plants can brighten up any workplace. For every desk, you could get indoor plants!  You can choose your indoor plant accordingly. Either you could get a low maintenance indoor plant such as cactus, snake plant or jade, or it can be air purifying ones such as aloe vera or dragon tree. Plants in the workplace prove majorly beneficial to people, both physically and psychologically. Try gifting indoor plants to your employees and create a nature boost in your workplace.

Encourage green commuting


Encourage your employees to reduce commuting emissions by giving awareness. Ask your team to take public transit or carpooling. And to support this, office management can give incentives. Public transport incentives and carpooling incentives can be incorporated so that employees could get encouraged. Management can also offer work from home policies once in a while as a part of eco-friendly living. Electric vehicles can also be introduced by the management as cab facilities just for their employees. This will reduce your company’s carbon footprint!


Try these 5 green-worthy New Year resolutions for your workplace and make it more nature-friendly! Adopt more environment-friendly policies by giving awareness to your employees and set a team to ensure it! This new year, let’s make it more sustainable!
