It’s officially well into the New Year. And, you may have set goals for yourself. For instance, starting a money making side hustle, helping out your community more, or getting in more physical exercise. And, you may have even set a goal for yourself to work towards being more eco-friendly. Instead of throwing everything in the trash, you could compost some items and recycle others — seems to be the best for saving the earth. And, it makes you feel that much better when you’re helping the world one recycling bin at a time.
When it comes to starting that new business idea or side hustle, how will these efforts correspond with sustainability? Would you rather use electronics in the office vs paper? Would you ensure that all employers would recycle and compost as much as they can? And the products you produce; will they be environmentally friendly?
It’s common to think about these things in the beginning stages. And, it also comes as no surprise that many employees nowadays value companies that have good sustainability practices. For instance, CSR (corporate social responsibility), is a scale that many employees will seek out before applying for a job or signing over their offer letter.
