Jacob Bailey Saves The World!

Apologies for the shameless attention-grabbing headline, but we take the environment very seriously here at JB towers, and thought we’d share with you 5 everyday tips for reducing your impact on the planet. It’s all no-brainer stuff and without jumping on a soapbox, there’s really no reason why we couldn’t all be doing it.

1. Recycle and use recycled materials. More than 60% of waste can be recycled and we make every effort at Jacob Bailey to do just that. And woe betide anyone who forgets to sort their drinks cans from their sweet wrappers – as Green Champion, I’ve got eyes in the back of my head!

2. Use energy saving light bulbs and switch lights off when they’re not in use. Energy saving bulbs typically use around 80% less electricity than normal ones, so you’re not only reducing your carbon footprint, but saving a few quid too. Just one bulb can save £100 over its lifetime, so multiply that by all the bulbs in your office!

3. Water conservation. Not only do we not use plastic cups in the office (which can’t be recycled by and large), we’re also keen to not waste water – it’s not as abundant as you might think! The average person gets through 264 pints of water a day and if we can reduce that by even as little as 10%, well that’s all the more for the fish to enjoy! Turn off that tap.

4. Walk or cycle to work. Not only is walking to and from work good for your health (not to mention an effective way to switch off and let the creative juices flow), but it saves money (fuel and parking) as well as the environment. What’s that, it takes longer? What’s the rush, you’re going to work! And if walking/cycling isn’t an option, why not car share or hop on public transport?

5. Go paperless as much as possible. Our London office is almost completely paperless now and the Suffolk office isn’t far behind. There’ll always be a need to print some things off, but we always think twice before adding a job to the print queue. Making paper uses a lot of water, trees and chemicals, and having stacks of paper all over the place does nothing for your Feng Shui!

Hopefully you’re doing most (if not all) of this already, and if you’re not, perhaps we’ve inspired you to give it a go?

Let us know how you get on, or better still, share your own top tips – we’d love to hear from you!

Chartwell, at first glance it looks to be a pretty standard condensed san serif font, just one of the many new fonts readily available online that you can download for next to nothing without a second thought.

As we finish up the last of a rather large batch of cookies we bought to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight back in March, I’m glad of the energy boost provided by their chocolatey goodness as I set about handing over my client accounts to the rest of the team. As spring finally kicks in, I thought what better…

I came across a tweet earlier in the week intriguingly titled “Top Tips for Keeping Clients Happy” and it instantly struck a chord with me – as an account manager, that’s basically my job after all. At Jacob Bailey some of our client relationships go back years so we’re clearly doing something right, but the…
