[ECO]: Greening Your Office

Eco Tips for The Workplace

Being green in your home is one thing, but carrying it through to your workplace is fantastic! How does one go about greening your office? Well here are a few tips I've put together for you:

1) At the offices I currently work at, we've implemented a recycling system so we all sort our trash into paper; plastic; tin and glass and this gets picked up once a week. Try google companies that will come pick up your recycling for you, or where you can drop it off. 

2) Need to print out documents? We use scrap paper (paper that's already been printed on the one side). Better yet though, try go as digital as possible. 

3) Unfortunately, some documents still need to be printed out in this digital day and age, so try make sure the paper you're buying is recycled paper. 

4) Keep files on computer (make sure to back it up though) instead of file cabinets.

5) When using the copier/printer, use it on draft mode or 'eco' mode as some new copiers have. You'll save on ink and try print on both sides.

6) Power down. Unplug your chargers when they are not being used, switch off unnecessary lights and when leaving work make sure your computer has shut down and is not just on 'sleep mode'. 

7) Use compact fluorescent bulbs. This uses less electricity. Also try and use as much natural light as possible. This can even be achieved by having light coloured decor which helps reflect light. 

8) Find out who stays in your area and carpool to work - your petrol tank will be much happier!

9) Green you office with small indigenous plants, helps emit oxygen into the air and gives the office a friendlier appeal. 

10) Inquire about using green cleaning products in the bathrooms and kitchens. 

Hope these tips have helped? Let me know if you have any great eco tips for the office?
