Our actions influence so much more than we can see. By making decisions to reduce our environmental impacts at home, we can automatically influence decisions taken by businesses and industries. Demand affects supply.

We can all take this one step further by taking the Green18 challenge with us to the workplace. You might be able to cut down waste at work, increase the recycling of plastic and paper, introduce a food waste bin in the staff room, reduce unnecessary energy consumption by lighting and computers, improve awareness of eco-friendly commuting, or even arrange away days in nature.
