Earlier this year, Creative Carbon Scotland was a runner-up in the Sustrans Scotland ‘ Scottish Workplace Journey Challenge‘, coming joint-1st in the category of organisations with less than 20 employees. As well as a now-proudly-displayed certificate, we also won the opportunity to donate £50 to a charity of our choice! We discussed it as team, and decided we wanted to use the donation to help support the sustainability work of the cultural sector.
Now we’re on the hunt for the best sustainability idea from our Green Arts community. We’re running a competition over the course of July 2018: any Green Champion can submit an idea, and we’ll pick a winner to announce at the end of the month!
We know £50 might not cover the costs of all your sustainability ambitions, but we hope it’ll help you get the ball rolling on something you’ve been planning for a while. Perhaps you want to invest in new recycling incentives; reward your green team with some sustainable treats; switch to recycled paper for your next promotional campaign; or buy lockers or puncture repair kits to support your staff using active travel to get to work.
Anything goes, as long as it contributes to your environmental sustainability efforts!
