How Can A Company Be More Eco-Friendly?

In this day and age companies are not only concerned with obtaining a profit. They also want to do their part for the environment. This is something that companies neglected to achieve in the past. That is because their main concern was meeting the bottom line. But with more and more people becoming environmentally conscious going green is a step that everyone has to take. However, despite this fact, many companies don’t know how to accomplish this task.


In this day and age, we know that many of you can’t imagine sending physical documents to someone. That is because we live in a digital age. This is where every important document is sent through email. However, in certain instances, you would have to send physical documents to certain people or companies. If these documents are sent through post we know that you don’t really have to bother with green customs clearance. In that case, what you can do is opt to use eco-friendly envelopes and papers.

But you also need to understand that many multinational companies deal with international partners and clients. In that case, the envelopes are not the only thing that you have to worry about. In that case, what you can do is opt to use green logistics solutions. That is because these companies are more than willing to help out with eco-friendly deliveries. Then you don’t have to feel guilty because every step taken would be environmentally friendly.

Update Furniture

Big companies, unlike small companies, have to maintain a certain image. That is because they deal with important clients and other vendors. Thus, in order to maintain this image, they opt to regularly update their furniture. They do so by throwing out their old furniture and purchasing new items. But what one fails to realize is that many of these furniture contains both wood and plastic. Thus, it would not be the easiest thing in the world to get rid of them properly. Furthermore, many individuals fail to realize that these pieces have a long lifetime. Therefore by sending them to landfills, you would be wasting a significant amount of energy. Thus, that is why we would never advise you to regularly purchase new furniture. However, that also does not mean you need to live with the same old ones. Instead what you need to do is try to update them. You can easily alter it to give it a new look. Not only would this be cost effective. But it is also an environmentally friendly move to make. Thus, this way multinational companies too can be more environmentally friendly.

How To build a Positive Impression 

As we all know, the first impression is the last impression. The statement doesn’t only fit to measure the personality of a person but it is also applicable to all the things which have an outer look. Likewise, before entering the house we must look at the outer appearance of the house. If it is not attractive and maintained, it gives an impression that the inner look of the house would also be the same as outside, dirty and messy. 

If you have been planning on hiring house painters Auckland, you should have to keep a few points in mind before taking a decision regarding the choices of colours and the type of paint to be applied on the wall.  

There are two main categories for paint: 

  1. Interior house paint 
  2. Exterior house paint 

Interior house Paint: 

Interior house paint refers to the area which is covered. For example, a living room, Lounge, Dining room, Study room, Drawing room and Bedrooms. 

Types of Interior House Paint: 

Interior house paints have various types and customers have to be very picky and choosy while making a choice of colour and paint according to the requirement of the room. 

  • Eggshell Paint: 

The quality of eggshell paint is, it does not reveal the imperfections of the wall and covers the whole wall with a single coat. It does not take much time to get dried. Many people prefer eggshell paint as it gives a smooth texture to the wall. 

  • Gloss Paint: 

This paint is not recommended to apply in kids’ room as the gloss paint gives a shiny effect to the walls and it makes all the marks more prominent than other paints. 

  • Satin paint: 

It is commonly picked by those who want to give a classy and perfect look to the walls. It is easy to apply but it is not suggested to those rooms where the walls have an uneven surface. 

  • Matte Enamel: 

It is highly recommended for living rooms and dining rooms. Kids also have access to dining rooms and sometimes they keep their sticky hands on the wall. Cleaning is quite easy on a matte finish. 

Exterior House Paint: 

When picking up an exterior house paint, we need to consider a few points. 

  1. Absorb sunlight 
  2. Easy to clean 
  • Oil Based and Water Based Paints: 

Oil-based paints are durable and take less effort to apply whereas water-based paint takes a bit much time to apply and get dried. 

  • Primer paints: 

Primer paint is not itself has a colour but works as a base for other colours to enhance its shine and durability. Some customers prefer only primer paints as the humidity in weather ruins all the colours and waste the money. 

In short, we can say painting a house in a one-time investment in 5 years so we have to be very careful in making choices.
