Supportedge is an environmentally conscious workplace that practices what it preaches. Three things the average consumer can do and we encourage consumers to do, to reduce your business’ and households’ environmental impact are:

1) Recycle your electronic waste (e-waste): “Australians generate more than 140,000 tonnes of e-waste each year and most of it ends up in landfill,” as stated on the City of Sydney’s website. There is an e-waste depot that you can drop your electronic goods off in Ultimo, Sydney. It is open on allocated days throughout the year. For more information on what days the depot is open or to find out more about how to recycle your e-waste read this brochure from the City of Sydney’s website. Or visit Planet Ark’s¬†website for your closest recycling facility.

2) Invest in long-lasting appliances and maintain them so you get a longer-life out of them: “You can save money and reduce energy use by buying the right appliance for your needs and using it efficiently. The position of the appliance, how you operate it and how you maintain it all affects how much energy is used – for example, placing your refrigerator next to your oven will make it work harder to keep your food cold. Leaving appliances on standby unnecessarily will also waste energy,” as stated on yourenergysavings.gov.au.

3) Buy technology that is energy efficient: “When you replace an existing product, think about buying an energy-efficient appliance that is right for your needs. The running costs of your appliance can add up to more than the purchase price and will impact on your electricity bill for years to come. Considering energy use in addition to purchase price and product features will save you money and energy as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions over time. A lot of new appliances and some electronic equipment have Energy Rating Labels to help you with this,” as stated on yourenergysavings.gov.au.
