Light Green Change. Oh, really?

Posted by Simon on December 4, 2010

The last post (September coz I’m a blogging slacker) showed the video we created at work to introduce the “Green Games”, a two-week competition to encourage our company to develop better environment awareness and practice.

After a successful two weeks it seemed appropriate to see how the stars of that video had faired:

Our man in accounting, Bob, won the competition with the most points gained by his environmental actions and ideas and for submitting his annual carbon footprint. His prize was that we paid for carbon offsets for his carbon footprint. To pay for the carbon offsets we used cash we’d earned by selling excess office furniture on Craig’s List. So we found ways to recycle and re-use in lots of ways. All it all it was actually fun and quite effective, with several people telling us what they’re doing and thinking differently now.
