Helping the environment is easy and can lower your costs.

Choose to do any or all to create a sustainable work environment:
  • Report leaky faucets. It saves up to 20 gallons of water a day.
  • Put a recycling bin at your desk.
  • Buy 35% post consumer recycled paper products.
  • Use washable cups, flatware and plates
  • Use the back side of paper for scratch paper before it is put in the recycling bin.
  • Ask all vendors what "Green" solutions they use. Support green solutions.
  • Use landscape companies that use electric equipment rather than gas.
  • Turn off your computer monitor when not in use.
  • Avoid using large office equipment during the 3p.m. to 7p.m. peak.
  • Instead of traveling to meetings, use online conference calls whenever possible.
  • Encourage employees to telecommute one day a week.
  • Set up a paperless billing system for your customers.
  • If you are using your car for lunch, park and go inside; avoid car idling in drive-thrus.
