Today, there are many ways to live a more sustainable, eco-conscious life. But what about your time spent at work? Regardless if you work from a home office, satellite office, or a traditional office setting you will find that you spend the majority of your day there.

How Hotels Can Become More Sustainable Through Data

The word “sustainable” is often used interchangeably with “eco-friendly.” For the hospitality industry, being eco-friendly may mean getting certified or meeting compliance requirements, and can be a point of differentiation that sets a hotel apart as unique, attracting a niche market. Though it has not yet proven enough reason to adopt sustainable practices industry-wide, increasingly, hotels are required by governments and customers to disclose their impact beyond branding. To meet these growing requirements, hotels must be able to accurately measure and disclose their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and resource consumption.

What Makes Skincare or Cosmetic Products Sustainable?

Sustainable cosmetic and skincare products are increasingly popular. The global demand for organic personal care products is expected to reach USD 13.2 billion by 2018. By 2020, this figure is predicted to rise to USD 15.98 billion. Labels such as “100% Natural,” “Organic” and “Environment-Friendly” are no longer enough to convince consumers of a beauty product’s sustainability. The growing popularity of sustainable skincare and cosmetic products, however, has prompted some beauty companies to resort to greenwashing, advertising of a product as sustainable even if it is not. Consumers must be aware of what makes a beauty product truly sustainable in order to make informed purchasing decisions.
