Green TeamBuilding

Team Building Unlimited's Green Team Building was featured in an article in

If you're trying to raise morale while emphasizing your organization's commitment to staying green, boost team spirit with some environmentally-friendly team-building activities. Whether the activities you choose directly help the environment or just use green materials, you can work a bit of your environmentalist corporate culture into future team-building exercises.

Create Trophies or Centerpieces
TeamBuilding Unlimited suggests using recycled materials to build trophies or centerpieces for your next corporate dinner or awards meeting. Don't throw out old boxes, dying pens and paper towel tubes. Use them to have teams build creative, green testaments to peoples' achievements. Give the "trophies" out to award winners at the company luncheon or dinner later. They'll mean more than conventional awards, because recipients will remember the teamwork that led to their construction.

Get Workers to Invent
# Have employees split into groups with recyclable materials, including old boxes, cans and anything else you can find lying around the office. Challenge groups to make a prototype of a green invention. Although the model doesn't need to function, groups need to explain their invention's purpose to the rest of team. As per TeamBuilding Unlimited suggestions, assign extra points to inventions that relate to the company and its products.
