Everyday, facilities used for commercial use such as business buildings, schools, shopping centres, schools, hospitals and restaurants use an abundance of water.  Within this water usage, a typical office uses around fifty litres of water, per full-time employee per day.

There are a variety of changes that can be introduced or made within your workplace such as:

  • Educating fellow employees about their water footprint and the following ways in which they can reduce theirs. A simple solution can entail a paper-free office, with a push to online services that counteract paper use such as emailing and google documents.
  • Affix water saving, taps, showers and toilets throughout the buildings.
  • When disposing technological devices such as laptops, phones and ipads etc. Make sure you are disposing them in an environmentally friendly manner. Take a look at Apple’s recycling initiative that takes care of old devices.

One Central Park in Chippendale, Sydney is an amazing site that affords to maintaining a sustainable environment that is eco-friendly.

All of these changes within your workplace will effectively, reduce expenses and energy usage, increase your property value and enhance your work environment that will become a space that thrives off water conservation.

Climate change cannot be resolved, however, your water footprint can – so it’s up to you to make that change that our climate needs!

    I wouldn’t have considered my personal footprint to include my personal water use outside my home! Which is silly now I think about it, but businesses must have a huge water expense so it’s in their favour to encourage their employees to take on your tips!
