No need to quit your job and join the Peace Corps. These days, you can do “good” in the world no matter where you work. Three ways:
1. Make small shifts in your company’s purchases. For example, take a common office item such as copy paper. Can you find a better alternative? Look for paper with higher recycled content, or tree-free paper. In many cases, “good” products don’t necessarily cost more.
2. Do good by eliminating waste in energy, time or resources. Do you throw away something that could be diverted elsewhere? Does an inefficient process gobble up time and resources? You likely know how to improve it. Make the case.
3. Ask good questions of suppliers and vendors. Example: “What are you doing to be more sustainable?” Let them know it’s something you value, and they may be inspired to roll out more environmentally friendly programs or products.
