We are often asked how a business can take steps to "Go Green." Here are some tips:

  • Position desks to capture the most sunlight possible. This will reduce the need for electric light. Try to schedule meetings during times of the day that natural light can be put to the best use.
  • Ensure that your printer is set to print all documents double-sided.
  • Turn off and unplug all electronics that are not in use.
  • Install a drinking water filtration system to eliminate plastic water bottles.
  • Send deliverables to customers electronically if possible. This will reduce shipping costs and will cut inventory costs as well by reducing the use of paper and CDs. This should include the sending and receiving of bills and invoices.
  • Turn off your monitor when in the office but not using the computer.
  • Start a recycling program at your office if one is not already in place.
  • Collect and donate used electronics instead of throwing them away.
  • To help eliminate the use of paper, build an Intranet to share internal documents and news.
  • Use green and recycled products such as rechargeable batteries and energy-efficient light bulbs in the office where you can.
  • Add plants to your office as a natural air filter.
