Environment & Sustainability: 4th & 5th June


You think green economy is just a trendy term? You think people who think about the environment are eco-activists? Totally wrong! For fileee, sustainability is particularly important, and we want to make our own contribution.

We are looking forward to June, because there are two important days for sustainability: World Environment Day – proclaimed by the environmental program of the United Nations – celebrates its 40th anniversary on June 5th, 2012! Worldwide there are 150 countries that participate – a huge movement which will help each of us to open our eyes to environmental awareness.

Even at national level, a lot has happened: The Council for Sustainable Development, which is based in Berlin, has created the German Day of Sustainability. They present national projects in regard to “Rio+20”, the United Nations conference with the topic sustainable development.

fileee cannot be missing there! With our product, we want to encourage you to live as paperless as possible. Especially for our fans / supporters in Münster, we have a special surprise:

On the 5th of June, starting at 12 o’clock, you can find us at the Aasee, where we will distribute environmentally friendly cotton bags. The number is limited, so get your own bag quickly! P.S.: If the weather isn’t nice, we will be standing right next to the Aasee at the Mensa, in front of the bike stands.

Besides this campaign we can really claim to work in a “green office” – which means more to us than having some plants in our office. Being paperless is our goal – we immediately digitize everything we receive in paper form, and we even try to omit paper whenever possible. As typical people from Münster we all go by bicycle, and we try to regularly give you some good advice on how to protect the environment and how to make your everyday life easier by living paperless.

And now we want to know: What do you do to protect the environment? Is environmental protection important to you or do you think even waste separation is unnecessary?

** UPDATE **

June 5th is over, and so is World Environment Day. We distributed our cotton bags from 12:00 – 14:00 and we could have distributed even more, but our supply was depleted at a certain point. Thanks to everyone who came and wanted one. We also hope that you take the fileee-bags with you every time you go out 😉

There is another day to keep in mind in October that deals with sustainability. This is the National No Print Day, which has been established by Toshiba and will take place on October 23rd, 2012. You can read more about the National No Print Day on their official official homepage.

Take the easy step and sign up for the fileee Beta-Phase now! Being paperless has never been so close.
