We spend a lot of time at work and just because most of us don’t pay the bills there, it doesn’t mean we should forget what we’d normally do at home. Work isn’t a free-for-all, leave that for the stationery cupboard. 


Stop wasting paper

Stop. Wasting. Paper. 

Why it’s fucked

We throw away millions of tons of office paper every year. That’s a whole load of people printing stuff they don’t need, photocopying their bums (or was that in the 90s?), not using print preview or accidentally printing duplicate copies. 

Change one thing

Print double sided and only print what you need. Oh, and if your office doesn’t use recycled paper or even recycle paper, start crying uncontrollably in front of whoever is in charge to change that. 


Bring lunch

Bring your own lunch

Why it’s fucked

You’ve read the stats on disposable single use plastics, but here’s another one to add to the pile: the average Australian consumes 90 kilos of worth of packaging every year. Yummy. Anyone for takeaway noodles? 

Change one thing

Bring your own lunch. Or, if you’re going to buy it, use your purchasing power. Say no to the extra plastics. Alternatively, take a stand and only buy from lunch places that use paper or biodegradable products. You go girl/boy. 


Turn shit off

Turn shit off

Why it’s fucked

Keeping our computers and lights on when we’ve left work is a huge waste of energy. Sleep mode isn’t good enough for overnight or the weekend. It’s just lazy, turn it off.  

Change one thing

If you’re going to be away from your computer for more than 20 minutes, turn off the screen. If you’re going to be away for more than 2 hours, turn the whole thing off. Same goes for laptops. If it's more than 2, switch-off-er-roo. Who said jingles were dead. 


You did it

By now, you might be feeling something unfamiliar. Maybe you've even fist pumped the air. It's a little thing called eco enthusiasm and you want to share your new discovery with the world or at least all your Facebook or Twitter buddies, right? Hold onto these feelings and meet us over here.
