Now is the time to Go Green….
Did you know that 82% of millennials strive to be employed by a company publicly recognised for its ethics, while an overwhelming 92% of millennials are more likely to buy from a company committed to ethical business practices. The case for “greening” your small business has never been more compelling. It benefits the health of your workforce, society, the planet and your bottom line.
