Humans have affected greenhouse gas and caused global warming since the industrial revolution. Although it might mean that San Francisco will be at a nice 70 degrees weather all year and more time to enjoy the Baker Beach, it still affects other wild lives and our ocean level.
It is more important than ever to take care of our environment. Our planet provides us with everything possible for life such as air, light, and water. There is so much plastic in our ocean that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans. We should take care of our planet as our future depends on it. Here at Treehouse Society, we try to eliminate waste in our coworking space.
1. Reusable silverware- Instead of using disposable utensils, we provide reusable silverware in our coworking space so you could eat your meal without feeling guilty about using disposable plastic utensils.
2. Reusable tote bags- We provide reusable tote bags for our members in case you forgot to bring your own.
3. Tupperware- We provide Tupperware in our kitchen and encourage you to take the Tupperware with you when you go out for lunch so you can pack it in case you have leftovers.
4. Mugs in our kitchen- We also provide mugs in our kitchen to make that morning coffee taste more delicious knowing that you didn’t make it in a disposable cup.
5. Filtered water- With our water filter, you can refill your water bottle and skip the disposable bottle of water.
6. We collect used packaging material- Got your packages sent here? No problem, we collect the packaging material from your Amazon packages and distribute it to the small businesses or nonprofits near us so they can save on costs for shipping. Contact us if you need some used packaging material.
7. Motion Sensor in our space- This is major! We installed motion sensors from our bathroom to our conference rooms. These sensors not only save electricity, but it also makes sure that you are active and alive so the lights can stay on.
Although the real culprit of global warming is not individuals but an infrastructure problem, we should still do our part to help the environment. Coworking not only saves you money but also can save the environment. Be an environmental superhero today and sign up to cowork today!
