Enjoying the fruits of our eco-friendly efforts
We launched our Hawaii eco tours last year with a focus on bringing new opportunities for visitors who want to experience the greener side of our islands. So far, our efforts have paid off: the Full Day Island Eco Adventure Tour on Oahu is one of our most successful tours yet. Back at the office, we continue our eco-friendly efforts by doing lots of recycling: motor oil, copy paper, aluminum cans and plastic bottles. It’s drinking bottled beverages that pays off, though, because Hawaii’s bottle tax/deposit means we get back 5 cents for every can and bottle recycled.
We want to hear from you:
What efforts do you make to reduce, reuse, and recycle at home? At the office?We recently turned our ‘hard-earned’ stash of recycling goods into enough money to purchase snacks like oatmeal, raisins, peanut butter, celery, Cheez-Its, and ginger ale! (which I’m going to drink right now… be right back…) Needless to say, the entire office was happy to have snacks in the office throughout the day. Of course, we asked the entire office if they had any suggestions or requests before going to the grocery store, so everyone got what they wanted.
What other ideas do you have for a community office fund?Here’s a few more ideas for the next round of recycling:
- Starbucks/coffee run
- Holiday/Christmas decorations, lights
- Brand new yoga ball (trust us, this one’s a good idea!)
- Community umbrellas/rain gear
- Magazine subscriptions
