How to Remain Eco-friendly Even During the Pandemic When the Circumstances are Against?
Single-use face masks, litres of disinfection, tons of paper towels and plastic gloves. The resolution to be more eco-friendly and to use less plastic has disappeared quite immediately after the pandemic hit. However, it does not mean the option to behave ecological ceases to exist completely during these days and months.
To wait until the pandemic stops and things come back to normal seem to be an increasingly frustrating experience without any clear deadline. However, at the same time, it is indisputable that nature won't wait and it demands a more responsible behaviour from all of us – and even more from those of us who are responsible for the behaviour of other people in the working place. That's why it makes sense to approach the coronavirus pandemic from a different angle and take it as an opportunity to change our behaviour regarding ecological sustainability – and the area of hygienic products is an ideal starting place.
The first step which can be applied almost immediately in any company and does not have to be postponed until the end of the pandemic is an installation of automatic dispensers of soap, soap foam and paper towels. These not only significantly decrease the use of hygienic products in your company (which positively influences your finances) but they also help nature by the reduction in consumption. By taking this step, you not only balance the expenses connected to the installation of disinfection dispensers in your company, you also set up an ecological operation for the years ahead.
The second piece of advice to be more ecological even in these months is a gradual shift towards more ecological alternatives of hygienic products in your company. You can find a whole range of Eco Choice products in the SHP Group offer – they include ecological versions of folded paper towels, toilet papers and handkerchiefs made of smart ecological paper, packed in ecological packages.
