Green Office Week raises awareness about making working environments greener.
Two eFIG (European Federation of Indoor Gardeners) members who are taking steps to make their businesses greener are global company Ambius and independent Green Team Interiors.
Ambius operate a paperless system and are encouraging their clients to do the same. 'Planet Positive' Ambius estimate this could save 120,000 pieces of paper per year.
Green Team Interiors were highly commended in the Green Initiative Award in their local Business and Community Awards a month ago.
GTI’s winning entry included this statement as part of their application:
"Green Team Interiors’ 'green' products come in all colours, shapes and sizes, and they are living specimens... Green Team Interiors are positively passionate about live plants for people in the workplace and can demonstrate that their 'green' products (the plants) and their maintenance bring a long list of health benefits to the people and their environment. This passion is what prompted the green approach!"
Indoor Garden Design have a Green Mark accreditation, and carry out 80 per cent of their maintenance jobs using public transport.
