Visit any office and you’re bound to see more than a few wasteful habits—stacks of paper coffee cups, piles of discarded printed paper and lights that remain turned on at all times (sometimes even overnight). But, it’s not hopeless! Here are a few almost effortless ways to get you started.
The Ecopreneurist has the following suggestions:
- Make recycling bins as visible as trash cans, and pair them up as much as possible.
- Dispose with disposable coffee cups! Just like your home, your office (probably) has a kitchen sink. You don’t use disposable, paper or styrofoam cups at home, right? Bring in some coffee mugs!
- If you’re lucky to get a lot of natural lighting, turn off the lights for a bit.
- The AC is probably jacked up high during the summer, but think about cross-ventilation options once temperatures cool down a little. Opening windows can be a nice change from temperature-controlled environments. Remember that thing called nature?
