Green Business Tips

Do you have your own business, or are you an office manager? If so, we have some green tips for you. You can save energy and money with these tips, making you the office hero.

Switch to LCD flat screen monitors. LCD flat screen monitors use less than a third of the energy that a CRT monitor uses. Turn off monitors when not in use.

Use power strips. Green power strips, when turned off, don’t suck power from the outlet. You won’t be using any energy at all when these are turned off.

Reduce the amount of paper you use, and recycle everything.

Consider a programmable thermostat. You can set it to the turn the temperature up or down at certain times of the day – in the winter, down when you leave. In the summer, up when you leave. It does it all for you, and you won’t have to remember to o a thing. Energy saving with no effort is always a good thing.

Typically, your lighting is about 40% of your electric bill. Compact fluorescent lights are 75% more efficient than incandescent lights, which use 90% of their energy to emit heat and only 10% for lighting.

Ban the Styrofoam. Keep reusable glassware, silverware, and coffee cups in your break room. It doesn’t take that long to wash them out, and you’ll keep lots of waste out of landfills.

Using green cleaning products keeps the air clean in your office – no toxic chemicals for employees to breathe in. It also keeps our water table from being polluted with products washed down the drain.

Even if you don’t have a business or work in an office, these are great green tips. Visit StocknGo and buy your health and beauty products in bulk. You’ll be ‘greener’, and you’ll save money.
