Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, Compost
Strive recycles paper and plastics and composts. When purchasing supplies, Strive seeks to buy recycled materials where possible. Energy efficient light bulbs and appliances are utilized. When not in use, computer equipment, the fax machine and printers are turned off so as to minimize energy use.
Ideally, project materials are communicated in electronic format versus paper-based. When paper-based reports are required, double-sided printing is preferred. Meetings with colleagues outside Nova Scotia are often conducted via electronic communication such as Skype.
We all have a role to play in supporting the sustainability of our environment!
