Green work spaces mean more than just separating your rubbish and recycling! There are a variety of ways you can look to do this in your office, so here are a few of our suggestions:
Support local business
BFG are proud supporters of a variety of local businesses, and we work closely with our suppliers to source raw materials designed to mitigate negative environmental impacts.
Literally, go green!
Introduce plants into your workplace! Studies have shown that both productivity and moral increase when your workplace is filled with leafy green life! They are also said to decrease stress, improve air quality and add a calming aesthetic quality to your office.
Implement paperless work practices
Resist printing that email! Communicate electronically as much as possible and utilise technologies such as tablets and laptops to discuss ideas with colleagues. If it really is necessary, print on both sides of the paper and maximise your page layout so that there is no unnecessary wastage.
We are constantly reviewing and trying to improve upon our operating processes, plant and equipment in order to improve efficiency and minimise the end waste. We do this by smart design and maximising things like board cuts, fabric meterage and
Upcycle your furniture
If your office is looking to replace furniture, look at ways you can utilise the items you currently have. Reupholstering is a great way to give new life to an old chair, and can also save you a bundle!
