4 Green Office Tips

 
Tips for operating a green office

There may be ways to capitalize on green, sustainable solutions at your facility, office, or building that require only a few simple changes.  While big changes can take time and approval to implement, these green office tips from MXenergy are easy to roll out and can have substantial benefits to both green initiatives and your bottom line.

Power Down:  Check to make sure you are maximizing your computer's energy efficiency settings.  Turn off the computer at night or when not in use for long periods of time.  Encourage your office to convert to more energy efficient lighting and to turn off lights when not in use.

Quit Pushing Paper:  When at all possible, "go digital."  Eliminate as much printed paper as possible.  When it is necessary to print a hard copy, print double-sided and make sure your office is recycling ink and toner cartridges as well as purchasing recycled paper and remanufactured ink and toner.

Take A Break:  The company break room can be an excellent starting point for a green campaign.  If not already in place, ask for recycling containers to be made available.  Switch to Fair Trade organic coffee and recyclable or reusable utensils and cups.  Encourage the use of non-toxic cleaning supplies.  Rather than heading out to lunch or ordering in, bring lunch from home in reusable containers.  This not only reduces energy consumption but packaging waste as well.

Cut the Travel:  Telecommuting, carpooling and video-conferencing are all excellent ways to reduce individual and corporate carbon footprints.   According to Treehugger.com, over $8 billion in gas could be saved annually if every car in the U.S. simply added one additional passenger to its commute.
