Office recycling may be a program that small businesses have considered starting, but compared to many other projects, it may not seem as pressing as other matters.
Maybe office recycling can seem like one more task to add to the list, or it can feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. Implementing office recycling can actually be very beneficial for small businesses for the following reasons.
Of course, one of the number one reasons to consider a recycling program is to improve sustainability. The ultimate goal is to divert trash from landfills and repurpose them to reduce waste and greenhouse gasses. The goal of recycling isn’t only better for a small business; it’s also the best solution for the world.
It can be expensive to run a small business. Operational costs can cut into profit. One way to reduce operational costs is through recycling. If the dumpster isn’t being filled up as often, then small businesses can opt for a smaller dumpster and put that money saved into good use elsewhere in the business.
Many people want to work for companies that share the same values as they do. If you have employees that are passionate about going green, implementing office recycling can help them feel that you hold high their passions and values. This can also help draw in employees that are looking to make a difference. For employees not already convinced, an office recycling program can also convince them to do their part in leaving the Earth a better place.
Customer Image and First Impressions
Being a small business that is doing something positive to make a change in the community goes a long way toward improving business image and creating lasting first impressions for customers. Recycling programs let customers know you have built an image that cares about the community.
