Team Building & Urban Naturalization

Going green can seem like a daunting task for companies to take on, especially when everybody feels consumed by their own individual responsibilities. Add to that the time and money it might take to create a more sustainable work environment, and you can start to see how hard it can be to take that first step to making urban naturalization a priority going forward. The key to making this change is to start small, take baby steps, be creative in your approach.

Urban naturalization can start out as a simple team building exercise for any company that occupies a work environment that lacks in the landscaping department. Something as simple as planting trees once a month with coworkers is an inexpensive but effective way to make a workplace more sustainable by giving back to the environment. In addition to making the workplace more earth-friendly, employees will find it refreshing to get out of the office and get some fresh air. Team building exercises like this can be something people look forward to, as well as boost moral in the workplace.

Trees can absorb up to one ton of carbon dioxide over the course of their lives so simple activities like this are worth the small amount of time and effort it would take to do them. Remember, urban naturalization might sound intimidating at first, but if you start small you’ll find that it's very rewarding and beneficial to us all. Greenpop is offering something similar to this concept on a larger scale for corporate groups to take advantage of.
