Pacific Workplaces recognizes the growing importance of sustainability in the modern business world and the importance it holds for our communities and the members we serve.
In the pursuit of a sustainable future, more businesses are turning to innovative solutions that reduce their environmental impact and enhance their marketability. One tool that has helped Pacific Workplaces achieve this goal is SUPER. SUPER means single-use plastic elimination and reduction which has proven to be a game-changer for Pacific Workplaces and its members alike.
In 2021, Pacific Workplaces made a commitment to sustainability by reducing or eliminating single-use plastics in our coworking places. This includes making adjustments to our spaces to find a more sustainable balace such as:
- Utilizing only washable silverware and eating utensils
- Locally sourced organic coffee delivered in returnable and reusable bins and removing single serve “K-cup” coffee
- Asking local restaurants to deliver catering items in paper bags instead of plastic clamshells
- Replacing vending machines with snack options in refillable containers
- Ordering eco-friendly office supplies like refillable dry erase markers and pencil highlighters
To show the impact SUPER has had on our members, we asked them to share how the SUPER and Pacific Workplaces’ collaboration has impacted their businesses.
