Looking for ways to save your business some money? Reducing your carbon footprint is a great way to start that’s mutually beneficial for your organization and your community. Many businesses throughout the nation—large and small—have been implementing these changes throughout the past decade. Here are three simple and easy ways that you can start to change your office to be more green.

  1. The classic Three R’s: reduce, reuse, recycle. This entails thinking creatively about the ways you use resources, time and money within your organization. “Reduce” could be supporting reusable food containers for your employees to lower the amount of waste. “Reuse” could be reusing scrap paper to print when possible. “Recycle” could be recycling any paper, plastic or glass products in the office instead of just throwing them away.

  2. Go paperless. Oftentimes there are many cases where offices are still using paper for processes that could easily take place online. Be mindful when planning for the future to edge away from using paper and look for current practices to update. We know it can take some getting used to, but it can end up saving your business a lot of money.

  3. Reduce food waste. This could be something as simple as donating leftovers from a banquet to a local kitchen. There are always ways you can prevent good food from being thrown away.
