Are you also a keen supporter of ecology? Then come and discover the sustainable initiatives set in motion by Hive5.
A few months ago, Hive5 decided to introduce a sustainable development policy. Different measures tackle various aspects of communal life in coworking: transport, food, and even how the offices are cleaned. Hive5 has already introduced some measures, while others are definitely in the pipeline, such as providing electric scooters for its members!
On the road towards Zero Waste
Do you also get mad when you see things wrapped in plastic inside more plastic packaging? Hive5 has joined forces with Lili Bulk with the aim of producing less waste. Lili Bulk’s glass jars are 100% reusable. And that’s not all: disposable cutlery, beakers and cups have also been banned from the coworking space. From now on, even plastic knives and forks are reusable, solid enough to go into the dishwasher!
Ban plastic straws, thanks to Bambaw
Plastic straws are a real scourge for the environment and marine life. This is because they are too small to be recycled, as they slip through the mesh of sorting nets. As a result, they end up in the ocean and, later on, in the throats or nasal passages of marine animals. At Hive5 you will soon be able to sip your drinks through bamboo straws made by Bambaw that are 100% biodegradable.
Hive5 helps you to adopt “healthy eating”
At Hive5 you won’t just find vending machines selling canned drinks and other snacks. We also provide fresh food for you in our fridge. This gives all our members and visitors the chance to taste the products brought in each week by Full of Good: fresh fruit and vegetable juices that are healthy, 100% made in Belgium, and free from any artificial colourings or preservatives.
Offices have to be cleaned – but let’s do this the eco-friendly way!
Hive5 has also started working with the eco-friendly cleaning company Edan Clean. All the products used by this company are 100% biodegradable. They contain enzymes which are capable of breaking down organic compounds, thus rendering the products harmless to the environment. Faultless cleanliness in the offices and in nature!
