Earth Day 2021 Activities for the Workplace
Happy Earth Day 2021!
We hope this 51st Earth Day celebration has you and your co-workers excited about making some earth friendly changes to your workday!
For Earth Day 2021 we wanted to share a couple HR tips on how to engage with your employees and encourage green habits in the workplace!
Hold a Meeting Outside
If the weather permits – have a meeting outside in the fresh air to both celebrate earth day and break up the workday. If your employees are WFH – encourage them to go for a walk during a conference call or meeting if they are able.
Review your Company’s Recycling Efforts
Does your company have any green efforts? Are they still up-to-date or do they need a little updating? Take some time today to see how you can update or create some recycling or less wasteful policies for your company. Maybe it’s a scrap paper station or switching your office from bottled water to a updated filtration system. The sky is the limit! Bonus points for engaging your employees to come up with their own ideas! For WFH employees – keep them engaged by sending ideas and efforts on how they can re-use or recycle items in their home.
Encourage Employees to Use Less Paper and/or Plastic.
Host a challenge to engage everyone in the earth day celebration. Maybe it’s using re-usable bottles or who can use the least amount of paper. Make it fun and it will be a win-win!
Host a company fundraiser to plant a tree or something else green in your community.
Ask employees to set future conservation/green goals for the company to work on during the next year. It will be fun to revisit and see how everyone has done on Earth Day 2022!
We hope this Earth Day finds you happy and healthy and motivates you and your business to think more about our planet and what we can all do to make it a better place!
