Here are some quick tips to make your business more eco-friendly without spending big bucks!
Consider a company-wide ‘green’ initiative. Try a no-print policy for emails and/or print on both sides of the paper.
Did you know that if you increase your thermostat one degree higher in the summer and decrease it one degree lower in the winter you could save up to 10% on your energy bill?
Issuu is a free online service that allows for realistic and customizable viewing of digitally uploaded material, such as portfolios, books, magazine issues, newspapers, and other print media. In layman’s terms, it does what YouTube does for video-sharing.
Working from home is one of the quickest ways to reduce the company’s overhead costs. With a standard office, there are several expensive costs such as facility, landscaping, and lease management.
Not to mention the property taxes and other operational expenses.
Consider the purchase of a laptop as oppose to a desktop. Laptops tend to use up to 70% less energy than desktops. And when you’re not using that laptop, put it in sleep mode.
Try dumping the styrofoam cups and bring your own coffee mug.
