Here are some key dates to add to your business calendar this September:

4th – 8th September – Zero Waste Week

This week, focus on your sustainability!

Ways to observe:

  • Create a challenge and offer incentives to reduce your waste, and remember to share your goals and journey on your socials!
  • Zero Waste Week is your chance to discuss your sustainability incentives! Tell your audience what you're already doing and why you think it's important.
  • It's time for a bit of self-reflection. If you need to be more sustainable, why not create a checklist or find some accreditations you want to work towards and share with your audience?
