At TeraTech, we are always looking for ways to improve ourselves, individually as well as an entirety. We talk about and share ideas that may have worked for one of us individually and if applicable, we find a way to implement it for the entire company. This is how the TeraTech TAKE-Shelf came to be. After one of our weekly meetings, it was discovered that a lot of the TeraTech staff is quite thrifty and quite a number of us have used Freecycle (www.freecycle.org) to obtain or to get rid of unwanted items.
There is a shelf, in our kitchen area that is now denoted as the TeraTech-Take shelf. When one of us has an item we no longer use or want, we bring it in, date it and leave it there for another to take. If the item remains there over 30 days, it is removed and donated to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. This is just another simple way we are working on our recycling efforts and are getting the full benefits of everything we use.
Please feel free to bring your item(s) in as well and/or peruse our TeraTech-Take shelf the next time you are in the office—possibly for an MDCFUG meeting? Note, however, that if your item is too large to fit on a regular size shelf of a tall bookcase, then please bring a photo of the item to leave on the shelf and provide your contact information alongside.
Could you begin something like this at your location?
