Going green was once thought of as an innovative business practice. Now, it’s the expectation; but many businesses are not exactly aware of where to start implementing green ideas.
A lot of businesses forget to go green when it comes to cleaning their office. But cleaning supplies and materials can have a significant impact on the environment. Choosing green cleaning products and materials, or choosing a cleaning service that uses those products, is a tangible, immediate practice you can implement today.
It may seem trivial, but turning off unnecessary lights can lower your carbon footprint significantly. Try turning off half your lights or installing lights triggered by motion detectors in places like the mailroom or the bathroom.
Technology has now made it possible for businesses of all types to reduce the amount of paper used in their day-to-day operations. And yet, you still probably use more paper than necessary. Using document sharing technology, sending emails instead of memos and projecting meeting documents on a document camera or projector can reduce your paper use. As a side benefit, you'll save on toner as well.
Placing a potted plant or two in the office premises can go a long way in enhancing your business prospects. Indoor plants not only improve the air quality inside your office but also make the place look more attractive, as well as increase the productivity of your staff.
Plastic water bottles have become the bane of the landfill. These bottles show up everywhere and don't easily decompose. Instead of using bottled water at your meetings or for your staff room, install a high-quality water filter and invest in some pitchers and reusable cups.
