Environmental awareness is a key part in eGym’s company culture. The Green Teem initiative was founded upon eGymees’ initiative and to take care of environmental topics within the company. The Green Teem Captain Horst Pfister talks about the purpose of the Green Teem, current projects and recent achievements.
What is the Green Teem’s objective?
With innovative ideas and creativity combined with a lot of engagement, we are trying to make eGym “greener”. Moreover this means we are searching for ways to protect the environment in as many ways as possible and contribute to a healthier more sustainable lifestyle.
In order to reduce waste, we have for example established cotton towel dispensers and equipped the office with reusable Dean&David salad bowls. In order to green up our office space, we have also added plants and established waste separation. Another achievement is that for internal company events we only serve healthy food and do not offer soft drinks.
Our latest project was to supply the office with fresh and healthy smoothies. We’ve got the ingredients at a place near our office where you can buy your food without causing any waste. The store is called OHNE and fully renounces packaging waste. The project was very successful as received positive by our co-eGymees and lots of fun.
A video of our little smoothie event will soon be on Facebook. Stay tuned and follow eGym on Facebook for more information here www.facebook.com/eGym.de
