Turn off the power. As much as 75 percent of electricity used to power office equipment may be consumed while the products are turned off. Avoid this waste by plugging your equipment into a power strip that you can easily shut off at the end of each day.
Recycle your ink cartridges. Enough said.
Donate. One way to donate office supplies that you aren’t using is to sign up with Gifts In Kind, which donates to various charities.
Turn off the lights. Simple, huh? Of course, you must leave the lights on in your store, but turn off the lights in your storeroom or your office when you are out on your sales floor.
And, tell your customers what your are doing. They may appreciate it, and you may inspire them to be similarly green.
