In honor of Earth Day on April 22nd, consider launching the following initiatives to help your office become more green. Sometimes greener practices can be more cost effective and create a more productive office atmosphere. Plus, you’re doing your part to help the environment and reduce waste! There are a number of things you can do differently today that will make a major difference for a brighter tomorrow.
Launch computer energy saving measures.
Set computers to go into sleep mode when unused for a certain amount of time and shut down when leaving for the day.
Save paper and lower printing costs.
Avoid printing in color unless necessary and use a printer that does double-sided copying.
Reduce paper waste.
Keep copies of important emails and files saved on the computer, review documents online rather than printing them and have checks directly deposited.
Purchase recycled paper products for your office.
Select recycled products such as restroom and kitchen paper towels and toilet paper. Many recycled products are priced competitively with non-recyclable materials, and in some cases, even cheaper.
