10 OctGreen Office Infusion – Issue 3: Waste Reduction
Even the greenest among us can fall into wasteful habits when it comes to work. Our eagerness to be prepared (or even over-prepared) for meetings can lead us to print more materials than we need to so that we don’t lack any copies for an important meeting, but there are many other things we waste in our workplaces besides paper. Food, water, electricity, and everyday office supplies like paper towel, disposable plates and plastic ware are all used in excess in most offices, consuming valuable resources and costing employers money. Read the third issue of the Green Office Infusion to find out about the steps you can take, both as an individual and within your organization, to prevent waste, even before it hits the recycling bin.
