How to make your office more eco-friendly

When adopting more eco-friendly lifestyles, it can be easy for men and women to overlook their offices. While drivers can drive in ways that conserve fuel and homeowners can take steps to reduce their energy consumption at home, few people may give as much thought to making their offices more friendly to the environment. 


Transform trash into new and useful items

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Americans generate around 4.6 pounds of trash per person, per day. Sixty-five percent of that trash comes from personal residences, and more than half of that trash ends up buried in landfills.


Plan ahead for eco-friendly landscapes

Eco-friendly landscapes can protect the environment and help homeowners save money. While it's possible to alter landscapes during summer, it's easier and more cost-effective to plan ahead for eco-friendly landscapes.


Go green at the game

Sporting events are often steeped in tradition. The teams battling it out have their own histories, but the fans in attendance no doubt have their own customs as well. Many parents make attending certain sporting events with their kids a family tradition, while other fans may wear a favorite hat or jersey to the game no matter how many miles such attire has on it.


Go green when lighting your home

To live more eco-friendly lifestyles, many people need only make some relatively minor changes. But even the simplest efforts, when multiplied across millions of households, can add up to profound results.
