Here is a bit more information about the different elements on the site and how we have considered our own eco footprint.
The Green Room
If you are embarking on an eco-renovation, developing an eco-product or service, or if you want to share your own experiences trying to reduce your eco-footprint then why not tell us about it? Other Green Beings will be able to follow your progress; comment; provide advice; share their own experiences or perhaps put you in touch with useful contacts. We have created a blog of our journey in Green Beings the Story So Far.
So you want to find an item that is made of renewable, recycled or eco-friendly products, which has been designed with due consideration of its lifecycle impacts. Well you have come to the right place.
Green Beings collate information on products to provide you with a central, searchable database of useful ideas. We ask a series of questions about the production process, however, as we are unable to conduct a detailed audit of the product or manufacturing processes, we must rely on the information provided by the manufacturer, which we then review and ask questions on. The review is then posted on our website.
We also provide an opportunity for you to sit on a product or service review panel. To be included on the panel simply tick the appropriate box when you register for a newsletter. We will contact you via email if you are randomly picked.
We have been out and about sourcing special offers for Green Beings. Check in regularly so see what new special offers are available.
If you have a product or service that you are responsible for or you would like to recommend simply email us.
A number of our activities have the potential for impact on the environment these are listed below along with our efforts to minimise them.
We want to keep operations localised. Being a web based business we can work from home and the key resource we use is a broadband connection, a computer laptop, a desk and a phone.
If we ever print anything, the paper we use is 100 per cent recycled and both sides of the page are used. Waste paper is recycled.
- Purchasing 100 per cent solar renewable energy
- Turning off appliances when not in use
- Using laptops which reduce electricity use and allow you to work wherever
- Reusing and recycling materials used in the office and home
