May’s Monthly Impact Report
This month, we have been full steam ahead with more regular office hours from the whole team. We have set up our new tumble composter to take all of our food waste (mostly coffee), which is reducing the amount of black bags we need to get through. Composting is a great way to break down natural waste and avoid it contributing to landfill.
As we enter the summer months, we hope our energy usage can continue to decrease for a while. Monitoring our waste and recycling through an office rota system is a key next step for us to ensure we are running as efficiently as possible.
We have swapped out our Nespresso coffee machine for bean to cup machine that provides grounds without the need for any metal or cardboard by-product.
Assessing and reducing our water usage remains a key challenge to improve over the next couple of months.
