Office Waste Management Course

Jun 11, 2019

I built this for our office to try to get a little team spirit around our waste management and waste reduction efforts. Sharing here both in the hopes of getting some feedback from more experienced builders and hoping others will include something in their own workplaces. We did a neighbourhood clean up as part of our corporate volunteer program and I snagged 15 contractor sized bags full of wrecked plastic and junk from just two square city block! ICK! :)

Very impressive Sarah. Also very important. I realize a lot of work went into this and it is to educate people in your community. Have you considered allowing a team of people that come from other communities to piggyback on your creation, letting them verify their communities policies and adapting the project to fit their communities and then giving it to the local utilities companies for their websites. Your message could go national and have an even bigger impact. You can add a condition that credit be given to you or/and final approval (for standards) be yours. Maybe head the team? I would gladly help.

Hi Victoria,

Thank you. That's a really interesting idea! It wouldn't be up to me as it was created for the company and using its resources, but I'll talk with our community engagement team. I would love for this kind of initiative to be part of a 'giving back' organizational strategy!

Wow, this is fantastic,

I am fairly new to RISE 360 and I wondered if you could by letting me know how you added the spinning globe on "Meet your Eco-Leaders?

Also, I like the way you put together the flip cards so that there was only one card on screen at a time, that looked great but how did you do that.

Thank you.
