Denplan gets even greener
As part of its commitment to lessening its impact on the environment, Denplan held a special Green Action Day last month.
In support of its ISO14001 environmental management accreditation, Denplan’s Green Action Day included lots of ‘green’ activities and prizes.
Not only did staff wear green clothing for the day, but many avoided using their cars in favour of walking, running and cycling into work.
There was a ‘trash fashion’ competition, quizzes, a themed cake sale and a raffle in aid of Denplan’s chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.
The ‘Monitor Monitor’ was also on patrol, giving out seeds and plant pots to all employees who turned off their computer monitors the evening before.
Business Services Manager, Kevin Muldoon, said: 'Denplan takes its environmental management very seriously and although the Green Action Day was a great deal of fun, it also had a serious message behind it.
'Everyone really got into the spirit of things and we not only raised awareness of green issues, but hopefully made people think about where they can reduce their impact on the environment at home and at work. Even something small, like turning off monitors every night, can save you money, reduce your energy usage and ultimately your carbon footprint – it’s these small things that will make a huge difference if everyone does their bit.'
