Being a sustainable
& zero waste business

As someone who is really passionate about sustainability, zero waste and having a positive impact on the planet, my goal is to make Living Green Office Yoga the most sustainable corporate wellness provider in the UK. A goal that I see as exciting and absolutely achievable!

Be 100% paperless – I’m almost there, I just have a small amount of printed marketing materials and use pen and paper for note taking

Make my website carbon neutral

What else?

The more I learn about sustainability, the more I realise that I can do better, and can help others to do better too. This is an area that I’m constantly growing in and working to improve. If you have any ideas of how I can be a more sustainable business please do get in touch, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
