As you may know, Metropix is part of Landmark Information Group - a DMGT Group business. Next week sees sees the launch of a group-wide initiative called Green Week, which aims to support DMGT’s Group goal to reduce carbon footprint by 10% by 2015.
The aim is to raise awareness of sustainability and climate change related topics, as well as to educate us all on how we can ‘be green’.
Green Week will run from 14–18 July and will we be embracing the week with a variety of green activities, all of which follow these daily themes:
- Meat-Free Monday
- Travel-Light Tuesday
- Waste-Not Wednesday
- Switch-Off Thursday
- Fossil-Fun Friday
The week is a great way for us all to participate in a wide-range of initiatives, and activities will include "The Great Green Bake-off", a Green Tea Party, British Red Cross donation points to donate old or unused items, visits from Organic greengrocers & Growers Co-operatives, a Wear Green to Work Day & Wear your Wellies to Work Day, plus being mindful about switching off lights or electric points and more.
Wish us luck in our endeavours - we will be sharing photos and updates from Green Week on our blog and Twitter feeds.
