  53. 53. Did You Know?<br />Change your light bulbs.<br />By simply replacing your standard bulbs with compact fluorescent (CF) bulbs (the squiggly ones), you can reduce your power bill significantly. Added bonus: The new bulbs also provide better color and flicker less.<br />
  54. 54. Did You Know?<br />Use Energy Star equipment.<br />Energy Star certification means that the appliance or product you are buying and using is green, highly energy efficient, and can save you money.<br />
  55. 55. Did You Know?<br />Choose an all-in-one printer.<br />By using an all-in-one printer that offers two-sided printing (also called duplex printing) you can easily and immediately reduce your paper consumption, and costs, in half.<br />
  56. 56. Did You Know?<br />Use timers and motion sensors.<br />Lights are often left on in conference rooms and other offices when they are not in use. By installing occupancy sensors, you will be assured that your office energy use will be efficient and not wasteful. It will save you money. <br />
  57. 57. Did You Know?<br />Reuse and recycle.<br />Boxes, packaging, paper, and office folders can easily be re-used. And, if you don&apos;t reuse them, then at least have recycling bins handy so people can recycle them. <br />
  58. 58. Did You Know?<br />Buy recycled office supplies.<br />Paper, pads, sticky notes, file folders and even ink and toner cartridges can be purchased in recyclable versions.<br />
  59. 59. Did You Know?<br />Let people know what you are doing.<br />Lots of consumers are making purchasing choices these days based upon how green a company is. So be sure to make note of what you are doing, what changes you have instituted, and then be sure to get the word out to the local media and your customers. <br />
