10. Help give coworkers the green bug
Sharing eco-minded ideas with coworkers is a great way to make sure your whole office gets in on the waste-reducing action.
Try giving out reusable water bottles, coffee mugs and shopping bags at the office on holidays to encourage fellow employees to reduce waste. Or send out a mass email about useful file-sharing tools provided by your workplace to remind coworkers of alternatives to printing.
When discussing your values with coworkers, remember to frame the conversation as providing information, not dissing their habits. For example, if you notice a coworker tossing a plastic bottle in the trash, politely telling him about a recycling bin in the next room will yeild far better results than berating him about his disposal habits. With the right approach, you can get everyone in your office excited about going green.
