Our Social and Environmental Activities

As a sole trader working from a home office my environmental activities are largely domestic. I make sure everything we use at home and for my business is properly recycled, including printer ink, paper, batteries, plastics etc. My local council has recently introduced a new waste seperation regime in my area aimed at improving their recycling rates, so it will be interesting to see how much this initiative improves the rate in the coming months.

I run a paperless office as much as I can, which includes changing the settings on all my accounts (bank, utilities etc) to recieve my correspondance digitally, the only paper correspondance I now get is unsolicited junk and even this mostly comes digitally these days.

When I do need to print something I use 'scrap' paper that has already been printed on one side, on the rare occasion I use 'virgin' paper I always use both sides.

The energy to the house is provided by Octopus who have good green credentials, although we are considering a switch to utility warehouse as they have a greater dependance on nuclear energy which reduces their carbon footprint even further (the intermittency of wind and solar means that they have to be supplemented by fossil fuels, biomass or nuclear power, apart from in countries geographically suited to Hydro power).

I drive a 20 year old car which does produce emissions but has paid its environmental debt several times over and is always maintained to ensure it runs as efficiently as possible.

I shop locally as much as possible and have recently found a local retailer who doesn't use packaging, products are stored in bulk, weighed out on request and you take your own containers, which I think is a great idea.

The other thing I do is try to spread the word, raising awareness is really important and I am always trying to convince people to change a few of their habits and ask more questions of companies and governments around issues such as 'greenwashing,' emerging technologies, investment policies and the drive toward net zero.

In terms of community involvement I go to the local repair cafe on the last Sunday of the month and offer my services to fix things (mainly pushbikes, kids toys and furniture in my case) I am a great believer in repairing/upcycling and reuse, a goodly portion of the environmental damage done by any given item is in it's manufacture.
