Back in June 2018 I introduced composting to our Portland office. I’m pleased to report it didn’t take long for our office to embrace our new composting program!
Over the past 10 months, we’ve collected tons of coffee grounds, fruit scraps (from our weekly fruit delivery service), and lots of table scraps from our lunch. Interestingly, I’ve discovered it’s easier to monitor food composting than recycling. It’s pretty clear what’s an organic item ready for composting versus the sometimes complicated world of recycling.
So with the composting a success, it was time to take sustainability at work to the next level. After all, we’re PaperCut – we have to walk the walk.
