Green Idea #3

The ubiquitous coffee tray. Cardboard life savers in a crowded work place sea of people streaming through corridors and hallways, elevators and stairways, hands filled with bags, phones, papers, tablets and other assorted necessities–these hearty helpers make the impossible possible.

How many of these trays does your work place use on a daily basis?

What if instead of simply tossing these trays into the recycling we actually took them back to be Reused?  Tim Horton’s will gladly accept these trays to be reused (at least this has been my experience as I shovel a 60 tray stack through the drive-through window, all but smothering the unsuspecting coffee lady).

While these trays are generally already made of recycled material, think of the energy and resources saved by reusing instead of recycling.

Who are we kidding anyway, we’re headed right back to grab another coffee anyway….let’s cut out the middle man and get those trays to where they need to be: helping the low man on the totem pole sent to pick up coffees for the team.
