Some organisations have already conducted surveys about the preferences of customers. Some say that over 50 percent of all consumers prefer dealing with companies that apply eco-friendly practices. One survey even claims that it can be as high as 80 percent.
No matter the result, one thing is clear. More and more people now are becoming aware of the environmental impacts of companies (especially the industrial ones). That’s why some of these companies position themselves as applying environment-friendly practices.
How companies practice eco-friendly acts
From production to distribution, there’s a way to implement eco-friendly practices. For example, manufacturers are now starting to use more natural materials in their production. Some even use solar or wind energy to complement the traditional energy sources in their manufacturing processes.
Even during the packaging and distribution, eco-friendly practices now rule. More companies now are also becoming more responsible when it comes to the disposal of waste. Many even recycle their own stuff and wastes from other organisations.
How companies can stay consistent
Each of the established companies often has a stated Mission that unites the whole organisation. This way, their efforts will all point toward one common destination.
All their efforts should stay consistent and on track. If they want to promote their company as one supporting the environment, every little detail should be in line.
That’s why some of them even encourage the use of reusable water bottles. This way, the public will use fewer (or zero) plastic bottles. Imagine the hundreds of plastic water bottles you prevented from coming into the landfill.
During fundraisers and other large events, many organisations install portable drinking fountains. This way, people can just drink from those clean water sources without buying sugary drinks or bottled water.
Both the reusable water bottles and portable drinking fountains can help companies stay consistent with their environment-friendly practices. It’s a small investment but the companies can produce a positive impact that could last for generations.
Consistency is the key to achieving a goal and helping the environment. Even in small acts, the vision should remain consistent. It’s also the key to making a long-lasting impact both for the organisation and the environment.
