The Great Big Green Week is the UK’s biggest call for action on climate change. It takes place in 2023 between the 10th and 18th of June.
The event is to highlight how people from all walks of life are stepping up to take action on climate change. And that is exactly what we are doing at Reuseabox.
This year, we have got involved in the UK’s biggest-ever celebration of action to tackle climate change and protect nature by setting up a community garden at Reuseabox.
Working as a team, over the last month we have been creating a workplace garden.
Because it’s great for staff wellbeing and morale. And it is good for the planet.
A study by the University of Technology, Sydney found businesses saw significant improvements in staff when plants were introduced to their workplace:
- 37% reported a fall in tension and anxiety
- 38% reported a reduction in fatigue
Nature also has the power to lift staff spirits and promote well-being and performance.
By introducing a workplace garden at Reuseabox, we have found it has been a great team-building activity with all departments getting involved. Over the next few months, we are hoping to be able to provide our team with a great source of fruit, herbs and vegetables.
As well as this, studies have proven that community gardens can have a positive impact on the environment as they:
- Promote sustainable agriculture
- Help improve air and soil quality
- Increase biodiversity of plants and animals
Here is a small glimpse of our progress so far:

Why is it important to us at Reuseabox?
We believe in helping people and the planet. That is why we help companies reduce their impact on the environment by making it easy for them to reuse cardboard boxes.
Using circular economy principles, we divert used cardboard boxes away from traditional recycling. We then place them back into the supply chain for a second use. By keeping cardboard in use for longer you can help us save trees, water, carbon and energy!
