Earth Day is this Sunday, April 22nd. Although Earth Day lands on a weekend this year, there's no reason not to celebrate it all workweek long! Here are 5 ideas to help you celebrate Earth Day at your company this upcoming week.
1. Start Green Initiatives
If you currently don't have any initiatives in place to promote a more eco-friendly office, now is the perfect time to get started!
2. Start A Company Garden
While no one has a good count on the number of gardens planted next to employer parking lots and in corners of office parks in the last couple of years, growth has been fueled largely by growing interest in employee wellness and an effort to give workers a low-cost benefit A company garden can be a fun way to get employees outside and help relieve some stress. It's also a great way to get some exercise. Create a competition between employees or departments by creating "Adopt-a-spot" area. These areas may include flowers as well as produce and herbs to beautify the outside of your office.
3. Add Plants in the Office
Plants are more than just beautiful decor. In fact, studies have shown they help reduce stress, enhance employee attitudes, increase productivity, and improve air quality. Spaces can be transformed without spending a lot of money by just adding a few plants here and there. The space becomes more welcoming and beautiful with the addition of plants. Variety of foliage, colour and shape of leaves also add drama to the surroundings.”
4. Do Some Outdoor Cleanup
Chances are, your office probably has a bit of litter in the parking lot, walkways, or other outdoor areas. Assemble a team of volunteers to help clean up the trash around the building for 10-15 minutes each day of the week. It's an easy way to help employees spend some time outside, not to mention how much better you will feel when you don't see the garbage!
5. Start A Wellness Challenge.
Use Earth Day to launch a new wellness challenge. Reward employees who participate and complete these challenges.
