The pink ESD bags are the same type of plastic as grocery bags. We recently partnered with Eco-Cycle to dispose of that kind of plastic, and we can also throw in bubble wrap and ziploc bags. They sell the plastic to a company that makes decking from it! My advice would be to check with your local recycling company and see if they offer something similar.
The carbon offset idea is a great thought and one that we are considering. Besides the things mentioned above we now we provide indoor bicycle parking, RTD Eco-Passes, reusable silverware, dishes, and pint glasses, have converted all of our old fluorescent lighting to the more efficient t-8 bulbs, are Rohs compliant, provide a wellness benefit so people can join a gym, and I’ve been working on educating our staff so everything is knowledgeable about recycling. I’m sure I’ve left something out..but yea, that’s our list so far! Thanks for your input.
It’s in the works..when it’s done we’ll see about posting it here!
