Research indicates facilities that use sustainable energy practices save money in the long run. While not every business has the funds to invest big dollars into solar panels and greenhouses upfront, there are simple measures your offices can take to be more efficient and save energy. In honor of Earth Day this past weekend, we’re providing small tips our company uses to reduce our carbon footprint. If your business is looking for easy ways to go green these tips are for you!

  1. Place paper recycle bins right next to printers. This makes it easier for people to remember to recycle unneeded documents.
  2. Bleed toners dry. Don’t guess on when to replace toner cartridges. Office360 offers an ink and toner replenishment program that will alert you of exactly when to order and refill toner cartridges in order to save your money and our environment.
  3. Trade in plastic spoons and paper plates for reusable dishes. At our office, we switched out paper coffee cups for standard coffee mugs. Small steps like this can make a big impact overall.
  4. Provide incentives. Recognize an employee who always brings their own water bottle to work by giving them candy or a cool pen. Hold a competition to see who can recycle the most in a month. Make saving the planet fun.
