Not a day goes by in which we do not hear a report in the media about damage caused to the environment by the way that we live and the products we use.
What can you do to help? Like us, you might be a business that’s trying to reduce environmental impact and support sustainable enterprise, which is why we’ve chosen to sponsor the Thatcham Sustainable Market being held on Saturday 21 September. Many producers are trying to be sustainable from the outset and a number of those local to the area are coming together regularly in Thatcham to share products and ideas with sustainability in mind. Pop along and you might discover some products you can switch to, to reduce your environmental impact.
If you are an organisation, having a group of people responsible for considering ways to reduce your environmental impact might be another way you can help. Here at Gardner Leader, our Environmental Group is comprised of people from across the firm, all of whom have an interest in issues relating to sustainability and the environment. The group highlights both things that we can do and things we can get involved in, such as the Sustainable Market in Thatcham. Some of the things you could do include:
What can you do as an individual? Making small changes every day can reduce your individual impact. You can ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ at home and encourage it in your workplace – perhaps by asking your employer if you can set up an Environmental Group such as we have. Where you do need to buy something new, you can do so from producers who work hard to minimise their environmental impact. Pop along to Thatcham Sustainable Market to meet some local producers.
