Tips and Tricks to Going Green
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.
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.
