Less greenhouse gas emissions
With fewer cars on the road due to no commute, we are able to lower the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that is one of the largest contributors to global warming.
"Transportation, which includes vehicles used commuting to and from work, is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
In 2018, 28.2% of greenhouse gas emissions came from the transportation sector. Furthermore, the EPA says that greenhouse gas emissions have increased by 3.7% since 1990. [...] From 1990 to 2019, the total warming effect from greenhouse gases added by humans to the Earth's atmosphere increased by 45 percent."
Less plastic waste
While working in an office, employees will more likely use a higher amount of plastic utensils and takeout containers. Employees are able to live more sustainably working from home while also being able to cater to special dietary needs and eat healthier at home.
With remote work being the norm since the beginning of 2020, there has been a 67% decrease in waste production for businesses, according to The Environmental Research & Education Foundation.
Less space and energy consumption
By utilizing the space, energy, and tools from inside our homes, we reduce the amount of unused office space, energy, and electronic waste that is only being used for a part of the day. In addition, it saves on unnecessary costs and maintenance over the lifespan of your business.
