Go Green at Work!

Don’t just be green at home, start a green routine at work, too. There are simple steps you can do right now to go green at work:

Only print documents and emails when absolutely necessary. Consider keeping digital copies instead of paper copies.

Use non-disposable utensils on your lunch break. Take a ceramic mug, reusable utensils, cloth napkins and plastic containers to work instead of using disposable cups, plastics utensils, sandwich bags and paper towels.

Turn off the power strip each night. If you don’t have a power strip, ask your employer to purchase a power strip for your office equipment. Did you know? Office computers waste $1 billion worth of electricity each year by being left on when they are not in use. 

Turn off lights when you leave your office. If you have access to the a/c thermostat, turn the thermostat up each night when you leave, too.
