Sustainability and living responsibly are a key focus in both my business and personal life. I care about our planet (hence my business name), cultures and communities, and do as much as I can to help protect them. It is an important part of who I am, and this philosophy extends to my business and how I work with clients.
Sustainable practices have been implemented in my business, and although Our Planet Marketing is a small business, I take corporate responsibility seriously.
SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS PRACTICES:
- Reducing waste in the office
- Reducing energy useage
- Purchasing eco-friendly products wherever possible – including paper (FSC certified and recycled) & recycled print cartridges
- Avoid printing and paper use wherever possible
- Recycle – paper, print cartridges, batteries
- Use eco-printing services
- Source local products
- Support local partners and services
- Support local community groups and volunteer activities – including Yoorala St Community Garden
- Carbon offset my travel (and Carbon Calculators)
- All cleaning products are eco-friendly
- Avoid plastic use wherever possible
- Avoid air-conditioning & heating as much as possible
- Founder of: Our Planet Travel – promoting eco travel and living
- Work with and recommend partners who also take corporate responsibility seriously
- Treat partners, staff, clients & suppliers ethically and with respect
Encouraging and assisting clients to adopt their own sustainable practices is another way I support businesses. This creates better outcomes for their business’s financial state of wellbeing, as well as their clients, staff and community.
I enjoy working with clients to discover and design ways in which their business and marketing can become more sustainable; to make corporate responsibility a key part of their business decision making and operations.
Naturally better marketing…
