10 Ways to Go Green at Work 1. Be bright about light Make it a habit to turn off the lights when you're leaving any room for 15 minutes or more and utilize natural light when you can. 2. Maximize computer efficiency Make it a policy to invest in energy-saving computers, monitors, and printers and make sure that old equipment is properly recycled. 3. Print smarter Make it a habit to print on both sides or use the back side of old documents for faxes, scrap paper, or drafts. Avoid color printing and print in draft mode whenever feasible. 4. Go paperless when possible Make it a policy to post employee manuals and similar materials online, rather than distribute print copies. They're easier to update that way too.
5. Ramp up your recycling Make it a habit to recycle everything your company collects. Just about any kind of paper you would encounter in an office, including fax paper, envelopes, and junk mail, can be recycled. So can your old cell phone, PDA, or pager. 6. Close the loop Make it a policy to purchase officesupplies and furniture made from recycled materials. 7.Watch what (and how) you eat Make it a habit to bring your own mug and dishware for those meals you eat at the office. 8. Rethink your travel Make it a habit to take the train, bus, or subway when feasible instead of a rental car when traveling on business. If you have to rent a car, some rental agencies now offer hybrids and other high-mileage vehicles. 9. Reconsider your commute Make it a habit to carpool, bike, or take transit to work, and/or telecommute when possible. If you need to drive occasionally, consider joining a car-sharing service like Zip carand Flex carinstead of owning your own wheels. 10. Create a healthy office environment Make it a habit to use nontoxic cleaning products. Brighten up your cubicle with plants, which absorb indoor pollution.
1) Be aware. Consider the impact your decisions will make on the planet, the local economy, and your own health. 2) Remember the rule - reduce, re-use, recycle. That's the order they should be done in - use less of something, re-use it for something else, and finally, if you can't do the other two, recycle it. 3) If you have a place to put a bin, compost all organic waste. Likely to be a scheme with your council to buy a bin for about £10. Get a small bin to keep in the kitchen and put all peelings, teabags, vacuum dust etc in it.
4) Try to avoid supermarkets. If possible, buy locally produced food. Check out farmers' markets and farm shops.
5) Start saving energy. Switch things off when they're not being used, use full loads in the dishwasher/washing machine, dry clothes on a line when possible, use thermostats on radiators and turn the heating down in less-used rooms, draught-proof windows and doors, insulate loft and cavity walls, use electric blankets and higher-tog duvets rather than heating bedrooms at night.
6) Save water. Get a water butt and a diverter. Consider putting a 'hippo' in the cistern (usually free from the water board). Have showers instead of baths, and consider collecting the water and using to flush loops or water plants. Don't use sprinklers, use soaker hoses plus timers, or a hose with a spray gun.
7) Take advantage of Free cycle if you want something or want to get rid of something.
8) Buy string or cotton bags, or 'bags for life' and don't use carrier bags. If you do, at least re-use them as bin bags. In fact, no-one should EVER need to buy bags for small pedal bins.
9) Use eco-friendly cleaning products and toiletries.
10)For small loads of dishwashing, don't use a dishwasher, use a sink, save the water and use to water your plants/ fill up your water butt

How 2 start recycle & become GREEn Take shorter showers. Turn the tap off when you're brushing your teeth. We're headed for a water crises as fresh water supplies disappear and more people are being forced to pay for their drinking water.
Take canvas bags to the grocery store (and skip the paper or plastic).
Turn off the lights when you leave the room. (Take a look at the devastation coal mining causes and you'll be convinced to leave the lights off now more.)
Leave your car at home if you're going somewhere in walking distance.
