Green Apps for Everyday Use: At Work

You’re there every week. Most people spend at least one meal-time on-location, or in its vicinity. And while it’s easy to complain about its constraints on your free time, at least it pays the bills, right?
You may not always be able to land your dream job, but there are definitely methods of making the work environment a happier, healthier place for you and your coworkers or employees. We recommend finding a way to get everyone on board with a recycling plan! It can be difficult to create a strategy that works for all of the staff, depending on your industry and the number of people you’ll need to accommodate. But with the help of Carolina Fibre’s consulting services, your company can get on a greener track in no time!
The question is, how do you get everyone to keep up with sustainable workplace practices? Before anyone has the chance to fall back on old habits, try introducing a managing app that will help keep all the employees – and yourself – in check. There are quite a few out there to help remind users about pick-up days and times, what is and isn’t recyclable, and even monitor group recycling efforts.
Our experts decided to give one of these apps a try and find out just how effective it was in helping businesses maintain a sustainable workflow, and My-waste was easy to use and could be customized to individual or group needs! While it’s advertised as the perfect household recycling tool, we found that its features were also easily adapted to the workplace, especially on an individualized employee level.
With reminders about pick-up locations and lists of what can be recycled based on a user’s postal code, it’s easier than ever for employers to set up an account and keep their teams informed as to what common office items can be recycled right from their place of business. Users can also access this data base and set personal reminders for waste disposal and recycling drop-off points to continue the green trend after quitting time!
Available on both iTunes and Android, My-waste is compatible with digital assistants like Amazon Alexa, meaning its users – you and your colleagues – have even more ways to monitor office-wide recycling initiatives through access to quick responses for all of your sustainability questions. Sticking to a greener strategy is easier than ever when you can carry helpful tools like this one at your fingertips: literally!
If you’re ready to implement a sustainable attitude at your place of business, the recycling consultants at Carolina Fibre are here to help! Just contact us to set up an appointment to talk about your office’s needs and capabilities, and we can help you get started. In the meantime, check out the My-waste app and see if it’s the right tool for you and your coworkers.
