Reducing waste at work
To reduce the amount of waste going to landfill from our Carnarvon Street office, we’ve set up a composting system to collect kitchen scraps. (As part of our commitment to healthy eating, Firstlight Network provides fresh fruit to staff, so there are always plenty of fruit peelings.) These are then transferred to a large composter outside.
We've also built two gardens at our Carnarvon St HQ using recycled materials, including cross arms from old power poles.
As well as encouraging our staff to take some time out and chat to one another while doing a bit of weeding, the gardens also provide a positive talking point. This leads to a bigger conversation about what we’re doing to look after our mental and physical health.
