Green initiatives set by Holiday Extras
Holiday Extras held a Green Challenge Week last week as part of The Travel Foundation’s Make Holidays Greener campaign.
Its group of ‘Team Environment’ volunteers organised a daily challenge in its office including a paperless Monday and energy-saving Wednesday to raise awareness on sustainability.
“Team Environment was set up earlier this year in response to huge demand within the company. Since we launched, we’ve established our overall aims and planned our objectives for 2012,” said Carolyne Creed, head of learning and development at Holiday Extras. “Our focus is on recycling, saving energy and community responsibility, with even the simplest changes – such as recycling tea bags in the team kitchen and turning off lights in unused meeting rooms – making a difference”.
