Earth Day may have been at the end of April, but we’d all be better off if we celebrated every day like it was Earth Day. So even though it’s now May, to celebrate the earth, take the time to take a look at what you do in your daily life and how that might affect the planet. After all, we only have one earth and if we mess it up, well, that’s that. Luckily, there are so many little things you can do to help the earth without really changing any of your habits. These are the best things to do because even the smallest of things can make a huge difference. The same way you should stop using plastic bottles because one person less makes a huge impact.
So what are some of the ways you can do more for the planet? Actually there’s a lot you can do, but probably the smallest change with the largest impact would be with office organizers.
Reusable Cable Ties
When it comes to office organizers, the biggest pain is organizing all of the cable you have. Whether it’s extra cables for lamps, extenders or various laptop or other technology chargers, there’s a lot of it. You also probably have noticed you have a tine of cable under your desk creating clutter and a chaotic feel.
In the past, you’ve probably used rubber bands or maybe even zip ties. While these are not particularly effective, they’re also terrible for the planet. That’s why choosing to use reusable cable ties can make a huge difference, both in easiness for yourself, but also to help the earth.
This pack of 24 cable ties is great value, at only just under $13. They come in all different sizes and colors, are UV resistant and are able to hold their shape. Made of silicon, they’re simple to use and very durable. You’ll also get six cable clips to go along with your new reusable cable ties.
The biggest benefit to these cable ties is that they’re actually perfect for more than cables as well. Use them to hold tie your loaf of bread or even for hold pens or pencils. You can even use these reusable cable ties for bags of seed, small bags of mulch or even dog food.
The fact these cable ties are so versatile and also so easy to use is what makes them such an excellent option over zip ties. Not only are zip ties not reusable, but they’re also actually very hard to cut off and get rid off.
Through some simple office organizers, you can make a huge impact on the planet and actually simplify your own life and save yourself some money in the long run. If that’s not a great compromise, we don’t know what is.
