We make lots of small efforts to reduce our eco footprint in the office at Hello Charlie, too.
We use only 100% recycled paper in our printers, and we double side and reuse every piece of paper before it goes off to get recycled and repurposed yet again.
We use Who Gives A Crap toilet paper. They're a Certified BCorp company who produce bamboo and 100% recycled toilet paper, and they donate 50% of profits to build toilets for people in need.
Our printer cartridges are recycled, refilled and then sent off to be recycled again.
All our batteries are rechargeable, no single use ones around here.
We use the same products that we sell here at Hello Charlie in our kitchen and bathrooms - for example Dr Bronner's castile soap for handwashing, Koala Eco, Ecostore and Kin Kin naturals for our cleaning products. We use biodegradable dishcloths and scrubbers, too. Plus it helps us to test out the products to let you know which ones we love most!
We have a fridge, kettle, sandwich toaster, toaster and a microwave to encourage our team to bring their own lunch instead of getting a
takeaway. There's no plastic wrap in our kitchen - we microwave with a plate or Agreena silicone wrap to cover dishes and prevent splashes
Our mobile phone plan is with Belong, who have Australia's first carbon neutral phone plans.
Our office furniture has all been bought second hand rather than new.
There are so many little things that we do around here to reduce our eco footprint, as it's second nature to us! Because although these are just little things, we know that they all add up to a big difference.
These are just some of Hello Charlie's sustainability initiatives. You can read more on our sustainability page here, or you can drop us an email with any questions that you have to firstname.lastname@example.org
