Keep it Clean
The products you use for personal use are a great place to start. Make your impact with soaps that are safer for the environment. Naturally derived formulas or formulas which use less-harsh chemicals are the way to go for greener cleaning.
Clear as Day
Keep windows, glassware and other surfaces clean using cleaners formulated with plant-based ingredients. Also opt for paper products such as tissues and paper towels that contain recycled content.
Start the Morning off Right
There’s something especially soothing about starting the morning off with a fresh cup of 100% certified organic coffee or tea. For added green value, serve in hot cups made from renewable resources.
Again & Again
Get a refill of water or your favorite beverages at your own discretion. Making daily use of a reusable lunch bag or reusable water bottle is a surefire way to cut down on excess waste.
A Bright Idea
Switching over to energy-efficient lighting can be a surprisingly simple change to implement. Replace current bulbs with energy-saving LED bulbs and set yourself up to save on energy costs over time.
Make Note of This
A couple of sticky notes here and a few pages of meeting notes there and you realize just how often you’re taking notes and jotting things down on a regular basis. You might as well take these notes using products that have green attributes.
Print your documents and lab-quality photos on paper that has recycled content. Try the automatic 2-sided printing function and use remanufactured ink cartridges, which require less energy to produce and help prevent waste in landfills.
Save Your Energy
Employ technology that is designed to help save energy. Features like Standby Mode help conserve electricity when the device is not operated. There’s no point in expending energy that isn’t needed.
