Global warming isn’t a problem solely relevant to large corporations, it’s also important for owners of smaller businesses to adopt eco-friendly behaviour. It’s everyone’s responsibility to save the environment, and you might even save some money on your bills at the same time. Here’s some advice on how to run an eco-friendly business.
Don’t Leave Devices on Stand-By
At the end of the day, it can be tempting to turn off your computer screen rather than shutting down the whole thing properly. This isn’t a wise use of electricity and is unnecessarily boosting your utility bills. Try and encourage your staff to turn off devices that aren’t in use and be sure to lead by example.
Improve Print Efficiency
Irresponsible printing can have a negative impact on the environment. There are things you can do to improve your print efficiency, such as using recycled paper and printing draft copies to prevent costly mistakes. For more ideas just follow these green printing tips.
Carpool to Work
If you live near any of your colleagues, you could suggest carpooling together. This will save you both petrol money and is better for the environment. Alternatively, you could try cycling to also boost your fitness.
Use Environmentally Friendly Merchandise
If you’re spending a lot of money on branded accessories they might as well be environmentally friendly, right? You can get products that are made out of recycled materials, for example. These are great as conference giveaways because they also tell potential clients that you are doing your bit for the environment.
