Member State Representatives can help WFP tread lightly on the earth:
- avoiding paper and choosing electronic solutions including
the EB Docs app for Ipads and Androids;
- printing double-sided pages when hard copies are really needed;
- refilling water bottles at water dispensers;
- avoiding disposable cutlery, crockery and napkins;
- separating and recycling plastics, bottles, cans and paper
- sharing these green tips with colleagues.
