Not the John Lewis list….

This time it’s government departments not MP’s offices in the spotlight.

It’s daft to think that some of the largest and busiest organisations in the country can run without any new furniture. And sourcing it ethically may cost a bit more.

But £500,000 on pot plants?

Why not lead by example on greening the office in a more sustainable way. Reducing the number of office printers; getting rid of bottled water, paper cups, water coolers and urns (mugs, taps and kettles work just fine); natural ventilation instead of air-conditioning…

Less kit, less waste and lower bills all round.
