Tips for Making Your Workplace an Energy-Efficient Space

Energy Saving

Are you a business owner? Then we can guess you’re looking to save money wherever possible! Heck, even if you’re not a business owner, we bet you are hoping to save too! Did you know that over 60% of businesses are trying to go “green”? If your business doesn’t fall into this category, we’re here to help you make the shift.

1. Reduce Waste

If you are not already doing so, encouraging your employees to recycle is one of the easiest ways to start going green. While it may take a bit for it to catch on in your office, simply putting recycle bins around can be the push your employees need. Even better, put item-specific bins in multiple areas of your office (paper recycling by the printer and at each desk, can and bottle recycling bins in the kitchen or common space!).

2. Choose Non-Toxic Cleaning Products

By swapping the traditional dish soap in the office kitchen for a greener alternative, you are ahead of others. A little over 40% of businesses use non-toxic cleaning products. Be the change! Pick up a bottle or two of non-toxic dish soap at your local convenient store.

3. Use LED lights

We have said it dozens of times, but have you made the switch from incandescent to LED? LED bulbs tend to last 35-50 times longer than traditional bulbs, and 2-5 times longer than fluorescent bulbs. LEDs also use around 75% less energy than traditional light bulbs. Plus, LED bulbs produce little heat, which helps reduce cooling costs!

Go Paperless!

If you are already recycling, you are on top of your game…but why not go completely paperless? That is the beauty of email and the Internet! If this is not an option for your business, encourage your employees to avoid printing unnecessary documents. If you do need to print, be sure to recycle paper whenever you can.
