In order to improve our environmental performance and to comply with new UK legislation, we are about to introduce better segregation of waste for recycling and will start with the office and canteen areas.

This is going to be launched at a company "Green Day" early 2008. I missed a recent meeting of the project team at which I was volunteered to prepare the awareness training material and plan other events for the day to get buy in from all employees.

We're thinking of handing out low energy light bulbs at the presentation for people to take home and I'm looking for other ideas.

Does anyone out there have experience of similar events or ideas I could pinch to make the day a success?

Ah the four R's Re-engineer, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. How about a book handout. Ray Anderson's book Mid-course Correction is a pretty interesting read. Hand out the bulb also as a bright idea!
