At Naked Ideas we are trying to do ‘our bit’ to take care of Mother Earth. We’re only a small business but we feel that even little changes to the way we work on a daily basis can reduce our impact on the world around us. Here are just a few of things we’re doing:
We religiously recycle all of the following, every working day:
We also donate our beloved older Mac computers and any unwanted books to charity.
Whenever possible all of our staff try to walk or ride a bicycle to and from work and to meetings. If the distance is too great we opt for public transport over taking a taxi. None of the team drive to work!
Though we never preach, we do like to try to ‘gently encourage’ our clients printing stationery, marketing materials, packaging or merchandising products with us to consider more sustainable and environmentally conscious printing methods:
We always include a recycled paper stock option on our quotes.
We try to dissuade processes such as plastic laminating, which complicates the paper-recycling process, or the use of metallic inks, which contain small particles of heavy metals that are pollutants.
We also encourage the use of biodegradable and recycled plastics in any packaging and merchandising items we produce.
‘Beautiful design’ and ‘sustainability’ need not be mutually exclusive.
We realise that we’re not going to save the world all on our own, but we’d like to play our part. If you can recommend other things we could and should be doing please feel free to e-mail us with your suggestions.
