Location: Firmwide

The firm created its BYOB ("Bring Your Own Bag") initiative to reduce the amount of paper and plastic bags discarded at firm during mealtimes. The firm provided every staff person with reusable bags, introduced the program to the firm via e-mail and allowed those interested to pledge their support. In addition, the firm asked employees to answer questions about current bag usage that we can ask in a year to gauge whether the program has had any sort of impact. In addition to this, the firm posted signs around the firm and we send communication to remind people on an ongoing basis to ensure this initiative stays fresh in everyone's mind.
