10 Ways to Go Green

1. BE BRIGHT ABOUT LIGHT

Artificial lighting accounts for 44 % of the electricity use in office buildings. We will make it a habit to turn off the lights when we leave the room for 15 minutes or more and utilize natural light when we can. When needed e will use Energy Star-rated light bulbs and fixtures.

2. MAXIMIZE COMPUTER EFFICIENCY

Computers in the business sector unnecessarily waste $1 Billion worth of electricity a year. We will make it a practice to turn off computers-and the power strip it’s plugged into –when we leave for the day.

3. PRINT SMARTER

The average US.office worker goes though 10,000 sheets of copy paper a year. We will make it a habit to print on both sides or use the back side of old documents for faxes, scrap paper, or drafts. We will avoid color printing and print in draft mode whenever feasible. We will also use paper, toner, and ink cartridges we will recycle and buy remanufactured ones.

4. GO PAPERLESS WHEN POSSIBLE

We will make it a habit to think before printing.

5. RAMP UP YOUR RECYCLING

We will make it a habit to recycle everything our company use. We will remember old cell phones, PDA, or pagers. We will place recycle bins in strategic locations.
