You’ve switched to LED lightbulbs at home. You’ve got the highest Energy Star Rating on your fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, TV, curling iron and smoothie-maker. You chose the low-VOC paint when renovating, even though you only had a vague conviction that it was bad for the environment based on a quick Google search, but given the choice, you decided it was worthwhile, because you care about the environment.
Reducing your environmental impact at home is a rewarding challenge. You might foot a higher bill at the checkout, but annual energy and water savings make it worthwhile. Additionally, you get the satisfaction of knowing you’re doing your part to reduce humanity’s acceleration of global warming.
But making the switch at home, where you’re master of your demesne, is the easy part.
Reducing your workplace’s environmental impact is a very different story. You’ve got budgets to adhere to. You’ve got workflow that can’t be disrupted by renovations. You’ve got a boss that is resistant to changing the status quo.
Here are 10 easy ways you can gradually reduce your workplace’s impact on the environment (and save money).
