Be Earth Friendly

More people and businesses are taking the step to be earth friendly.  They may not use plastic bags, they may not use Styrofoam, and they might recycle paper.  It is a tiny step forward.  They must look deeper to see what they can eliminate, reduce, reuse and recycle.

I have noticed companies that think they are being a sustainable business because they recycle bottles and cans.  However they are still wasting paper by printing on one side, printing when the document does not need to be printed, leaving lights and computers running. Look harder – look at your purchasing records.  Are there items that you do not need to purchase?  Are there items that you could purchase as earth friendly items?

More steps forward will cut your energy costs, will reduce your spending, and will green your reputation which in turns brings more clients to you.  It makes sense to have a environmental consultant do a site audit to inspect your facility and help you reduce your carbon footprint.

In the end it will make the business better, your employees happier, save you money and save natural resources.  It is the right thing to do.
