Green Ideas.

I am looking  for  green product ideas.

Examples

  • Products that are energy, water and resource efficient.
  • Made with minimum use of virgin materials.
  • Non polluting in manufacture.
  • Materials re-usable and recyclable.
  • Products often have ecolabels and certifications schemes.

Local Sourcing and Tender.

If all other factors are similar (price, quality, service, maintenance and resupply etc), a local supplier may be chosen over a remote supplier as the reduced distances reduces risks and in addition  represents a positive environmental benefit.  

In addition suppliers normally conform to my Green Policy.

Hotel hygiene and anti microbe.
