Tips and Tricks to Going Green

More Work, Less Energy

Set computers to energy-saving settings and make sure to shutdown when you leave for the day (``standby`` settings will continue to draw power even when not in use).

Digitize- Don't Be a Paper Pusher

Go paperless as much as possible.

  • Reduce the number of items you print.
  • Reuse the pages by writing on the back for scrap paper.
  • Place unneeded items in the recycling bin, not the trash.
Greening the Commute

American workers spend an average of 47 hours per year commuting through rush hour traffic. This adds up to 3.7 billion hours and 23 billion gallons of gas wasted in traffic each year. We can ease some of this strain by carpooling, taking public transit, biking, walking or a creative combination.

Use Green Materials

Some paper use can't be avoided, so use recycled paper and envelopes that have been processed and colored using eco-friendly methods. Pens and pencils can also be made of recycled materials, and refillable pens and markers are preferable to disposable ones. Recycling printer cartridges is often free, and recycled replacements are cheaper than new ones.

Redesign the Workspace

Greening the space in which you work has almost limitless possibilities. Start with good furniture, good lighting and good air.

Green Work: By the Numbers

  • Once: the number of times that most of the more than 25 billion cartons manufactured in the U.S. are used.
  • 55%: the amount of water saved by producing recycled paper as compared to virgin paper. Recycled paper all takes 60-70% less  energy to produce than paper from virgin pulp.
  • 120: the number of tons of steel saved if every UK office worker used one less staple a day.
  • 8 billion: the number of gallons of gas saved if every commuter car in the U.S. carried just one more person.
