IN ADDITION TO CONTRIBUTING 1% OF OUR ANNUAL SALES TO THE GREAT BARRIER REEF, WE ALSO UNDERTAKE THE FOLLOWING INITIATIVES TO REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT:
Our team reduces our travel wherever possible, preferring public transport & riding our bikes over traveling via car. Our flexible, work-from-home policies enable our staff to keep unnecessary travel to a minimum.
In addition, when we have team or client meetings, we use video conferencing facilities & hold virtual meetings. This helps us to reduce our travel time and the carbon emissions associated with it.
At STYLE STORY, our team includes everyone from working mums to semi-retirees & uni students. We have busy family lives and commitments.
That's why we not only offer flexible hours and allow our team to work part time, we also allow them to work from home.
This allows us to reduce our carbon footprint and reduce our office space.
Working Off Laptops
Our team work off laptops wherever possible because they use 80% less power than desktop computers. This also makes it easier for us to work flexibly & work from home.
In our staff kitchen, we have reusable cups, plates, bowls and cutlery on hand for our team to use to cut down on single waste plastics.
We also have filtered water so that our staff can reuse their personal bottles rather than buying disposable plastic water bottles.
We have double glaze windows at our office to reduce our year-round energy consumption.
In addition, we have ondol, the traditional Korean heating system installed in our office floor to reduce energy.
We have three bins in our office to collect food waste, recycling and general garbage. We recycle not only hard and soft plastics, but PET bottles, styrofoam, aluminum, batteries, expired lighting and glass.
STYLE STORY is an official member of 1% For The Planet. This means we have committed to donating at least 1% of our annual revenue to environmental nonprofits doing important work across the globe.
