Celebrating Earth Hour 2018

Saturday, March 24th at 8:30pm saw the celebration of World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour and Ricoh New Zealand were happy to play our part.

Branches around the country took it upon themselves to to get involved with Earth Hour and do what they could to help promote sustainability and greater responsibility for the environment.

Our Wellington office (above) charged staff with looking after their own plants – quite the challenge! – which was matched by those in our Dunedin Branch. In Hamilton, a herb garden was implemented in the office kitchen, to encourage staff to bring in their own lunches and reduce wastage.

At our Christchurch and Palmerston North locations, an Earth Hour quiz was on the agenda, to test the grey matter on all things sustainability, whilst our Distribution Centres reduced their lighting usage over the weekend, instead relying more on natural sources of light.

Well done to all those who contributed in helping to raise awareness of an issue that Ricoh New Zealand values greatly.
