If you own or manage an office or other business space, you have a responsibility to run it sustainably. It doesn’t matter if you’re the office manager of a financial corporation or the owner of a small SEO agency – we all need to be doing what we can to reduce resource consumption and reduce our environmental impact.
Fortunately, it’s extremely easy to implement “green office” policies that deal with waste and resource consumption. In the rest of this article, I’ve covered a handful of my top tips for reducing office waste. They include:
- Print Less
Printing is a major contributor to office waste. Think about it, how often do you print a document or presentation, only to look through it once and then relegate it to the rubbish bin?
I bet it happens pretty often, right?
Rather than unconsciously printing everything, think about how you can move things online. Of course, there will still be some things that you have to print and file hard copies of, but it’s extremely easy to reduce your printer usage and therefore reduce office paper consumption.
