I work in a very wasteful enviroment. I am the only one that recycles and I can't even recycle as much as I want. We have compliamentary bottled water and I try to bring filtered water from home but sometimes I forget. I have a box next to my desk for paper and empty bottled waters. Everyone walks by my office and I let them know they are welcomed to throw it in there but no one does. They all throw them out in their own personal garbage can. I get them out when I can.
Everyone also over prints. Instead of making a hand written change on an order they will print a 5 page report over and over.
I work in catering which is very wasteful in tons of areas. Sometimes I think I may need to get out of here just because all the waste drives me crazy.
