A round up of our Go Green Campaign for October

A round up of our Go Green Campaign for October

As October has drawn to a close, so has our campaign for focussing on all things sustainability.

2019-11-01

Its been a challenging and eye- opening month, with colleagues making their own individual pledges to make a difference, as well as changes being made within the office.

Colleague Pledges – A quick summary

Throughout the month of October, colleagues at the Bristol office pledged to make a difference – and this is what we saw:-

  • Saying NO to single use plastic
  • Colleagues cycling to work up to twice a week, with some colleagues peddling up to 20 miles each day
  • Colleagues leaving the car at home and walking to work
  • Colleagues using supermarket recycling bins
  • Taking the ‘plastic pollution’ quiz to find out how we can do more
  • Not buying new – but repairing and recycling clothing
  • Reducing food waste across a 7- day period

Taking their pledge beyond October, to make a bigger commitment

Some colleagues have agreed to continue with their pledge beyond October – making permanent changes to their behaviour or activities. They may be small tweaks to daily life, but if we all do our bit, it will make an impact.

Sustainability is important to Astra Security
Steve Bird, Operations Director at Astra Security said ‘It’s been great to see all of our staff here in Bristol taking responsibility and pledging to make a difference throughout October. We all have a duty of care, both on an individual and personal level, as well as from a business perspective too.  It’s the biggest issue that we are all having to face into and do something positive about it. Our recent initiative for October  has served as a reminder on a day to day basis, on how we can all do our bit to help save the planet.  The campaign has brought the issues to life, and I’m delighted to see that some colleagues will be continuing with their pledges beyond October – making an even bigger commitment.’
