Is your business helping to protect the Earth?

If you think the answer is "yes," check again. You may have instituted changes that are meant to have a positive impact on the Earth, but is your staff carrying out those changes? For example, many hotels say they will not change linens every day unless they are asked by their guests. However, those who work in housekeeping see it as part of their job to keep the rooms fresh and clean, which means changing the linens every day (which they do). So what the management says it is doing and what the staff really is doing are two different things.

If you have instituted ideas in your business to help save the environment, take time this week to check on how those ideas have been implemented. Make sure that your staff understands what you want and why you want it. Ensure that they are "on board" with the idea. The Earth will thank you!
