Some simple waste saving tips for business

So for businesses, a couple of take-aways and easy-to-do changes in the supply chain

  • Paper manuals in multiple languages should be a thing of the past — go fully digital and save trees
  • Electrical cables. Rather than putting every variation possible in the box, why don’t you put country specific plugs in? You can make the others available as a separate purchase. I appreciate this makes it easier for your business, but our landfills are testament to the crisis being created. NO UNECESSARY EXCESS ANYMORE PLEASE
  • CDs are useless, THEY have been for a long time and should not be packed in any tech anymore. If you have some country markets where they are still relevant, sure, no problem. But a country with high digital penetration is not using CDs
  • Excess packaging in the boxes, such as plastic, plastic bags of air, cardboard, styrofoam, and more, should all be part of history. Look into mushroom packaging and other sustainable options please
  • The overall excess packaging of products needs to be addressed, and if you’re shipping products with a whole lot of air in the boxes — air typically stuffed with plastic like bubble wrap — well time for new designs. Let’s cut out waste across every area of our businesses
