No business on its own is going to save the planet, but there’s an ever-growing army of green entrepreneurs and eco-conscious organisations all pushing for a more sustainable future – and Art Division is one of them.
As a business that recycles almost everything, we’re pleased to report that our recycling efforts over the past 12 months has resulted in saving four trees and one tonne of CO2.
Our food is recycled through First Mile, a company which provides recycling and waste services for businesses across London and Birmingham, while our electricity and gas is supplied by Ecotricity, the ‘world’s first Green Electricity company’. We’ve cut utility costs, and reduced our carbon footprint. Our next eco-friendly move? Probably recycled paper.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that small gestures don’t impact big issues like global warming. In fact, we could all sleep a little more soundly in our beds at night by ignoring the not-so-well-informed opinions of none other than the current President of the United States, and doing our bit to help, however insignificant that may seem.
The US has pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, and in response we encourage other businesses to do even more now, and not rely on politicians to do all the work for us.
With the pressure to protect the environment arguably at an all-time high, ‘going green’ is the best solution.
