Spotlight: Her Campus Media's Sustainability Committee
Her Campus Media is proud to embrace sustainable business practices in everything we do, from our everyday office life to the way we run our events across the country. Not only are our employees passionate about protecting our planet, but we also recognize that as a media company, we have many eyes on us - the eyes of the next generation of our team members, partners, parents, politicians and, most importantly, Earth-savers. We see the rollbacks on environmental protection and the ever-increasing signs of climate change and we know that it’s more important than ever to make a good impression. So, how are we doing our part?
We’re recycling our cans, bottles, boxes and paper products despite being in a building that doesn’t have a recycling program in place. All it takes is some research and putting your money where your mouth is -- where there’s a will, there’s a way!
We’re using ceramic mugs, cups and plates, and silverware, but when we do have to use paper or plastic products, we’re making sure they’re made of recycled and recyclable materials.
We’re ordering our office snacks and office supplies in bulk, reducing the amount of packaging we have to dispose of and the number of deliveries we have to receive.
We’re vetting our vendors, choosing those who share our beliefs in sustainability whenever possible.
We’re doing everything we can to conduct business digitally - this includes proposals, contracts, mockups and more.
Most importantly, we’re setting an eco-friendly example for all the college women that already come to us for everything else. We’re determined to make sure they’re informed and ready to do their part for our planet.
