Earth Day is just around the corner and by choosing to stock your Detroit workplace with green office supplies, you are helping to reduce your carbon footprint, which in turn can help save our planet for future generations. Many green office supplies can help to conserve energy and cut down on the amount of pollution in the environment.
Did you know?
One ton of recycled paper saves up to 17 trees. Green office products have fewer toxins so they are less harmful. Many green office products are highly concentrated allowing you to use fewer products and save money by buying infrequently.
Tips for a Greener Office
You can turn your office into an environmentally friendly space with just a few changes.
Have a water cooler or use tap instead of buying bottled water. Switch to e-bills. This will cut down on paper waste instantly. Reduce, reuse, and recycle whenever possible. Switch out bulbs for compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) to cut the energy used by one light bulb by almost 70 percent. Turn off all computers and non-essential equipment at the end of each workday. If possible, allow employees to telecommute a few days a week. Encourage plants like spider plants and aloe in every office. They clean the air without you even knowing. Bring your lunch in a reusable container.
