The Green campaign

#1, A GREEN SEARCH ENGINE

1 search on the Ecosia browser is a seed planted in one of the places in the world that needs it most.

This will help create a healthier planet and continue the fight against illegal logging and climate change.

#2 DON'T GOOGLE EVERYTHING

A Google search uses the same amount of energy as making a cup of tea.

Keeping your favourite sites as "favourites" will not only help you save energy, it will also save you time. If you know the address of the website, type it directly into your browser!

#3 USE DARK/NIGHT MODE OR DARK MODE

Dark mode has a number of advantages. The higher contrast of text makes it easier to read documents and see icons, reducing eye fatigue. What's more, dark mode can enhance certain aspects of videos and photos, such as colour and detail.

There is some debate as to whether or not dark mode saves energy and improves battery life. What we do know is that it looks cool and improves our health.

#4 PLANTS MAKE YOU MORE CREATIVE

Numerous studies have confirmed that office plants increase creativity by up to 15 %. They also have a number of advantages:

🌿 Spider Plant | Removes chemicals and pollutants from the air.

🍃 Snake Plant | Removes all kinds of toxins from the air, including trichloroethylene, formaldehyde, toluene, benzene and xylene.

🌿 Boston Fern | A natural humidifier, it indirectly benefits people with dry skin, often a side-effect of air-conditioned indoor spaces.

🌾 Rosemary | Improves concentration and memory, keep a rosemary plant nearby in places like your office or any other room where you could use a mental boost.

#5 INSTALL ECOFONT

#6 WORK FROM HOME!

This will not only eliminate the need for electricity in the office that day, but will also save your employees' daily commute (especially those in cars). It also helps your employees stay productive and gives them the confidence to work from home. Productivity guaranteed.

#7 BRING YOUR OWN MEAL

Bring reusable bottles, containers, jars and cans.

Not only will this save you a lot of money, but preparing your own lunch will also help you eat more healthily. Stop using plastic cups and cutlery and share your recipes with your colleagues during the coffee break.

#8 THE GAMIFICATION OF EVERYDAY LIFE

Download an Eco-friendly competition application and track your data. How eco-friendly are you? Start a competition with your colleagues.

Who will be the greenest person in the office?

Our choice => JouleBug

Like a fitness app for sustainable development, this app tracks your daily actions and turns them into a fun and friendly competition against your friends and community. You'll be graded on achievements like using a reusable water bottle or your shower time, and rewarded with beautiful badges to make your friends green with envy.

You can even link the application to your utility bills to see how your actions reduce your usage. Educational and fun, we love it.

#9 DON'T USE BLACK, USE GREYSCALE!

What is greyscale printing?

By using shades of grey, you print using your black ink cartridge to obtain a print combining black and white.

If you're only printing text, you probably won't need the other colours because you won't even notice the difference. Almost all printers or applications have the option of printing in 'greyscale'.

Do you also have any habits or tips to share with us on how to be more eco-responsible in the office?

Tell us all about it in the comments.

See you soon 💚💚💚
