5 fun, eco-friendly ideas that you can do for your business on Earth Day to get your employees involved and show your prospects and your clients how COOL it is to be green!

#1: CATCH your employees being green. Put a team together and then surprise your employees throughout the day at specified times that they don’t know about, but your team does. Your mission is to catch people being green and reward them. Look for people who are working with their lights off, or turned their lights off when they go to lunch or break. Also, look at their recycle bin, are they using it? These are green behaviors that you want to encourage so reward them with:

  • Caught being green stars or seeded buttons

  • Branded eco-items:
    • Hats

#4: Have a PARKING LOT party. Have your eco-friendly vendors setup tables in your parking lot to help your employees, clients, neighbors and prospects understand what they offer and how they can help Mother Earth. Have a shred fest or an E-waste event. Advertise it beforehand so you get more prospects coming into your parking lot to join the event. Promoting it not only helps Mother Earth, but it advertises your company and will help grow your business. Make sure you give out a goodie bag with branded eco-friendly items to get your name out there.

You want to really show how eco-friendly you are and that you’re doing your part to save Mother Earth. Here are some links to Earth day activities you can promote doing in the Bay Area.
