Recycling at the Office

More and more people are bringing their awareness of green living to their place of business. From large corporations like Walmart to micro businesses--a growing number of companies are becoming more environmentally responsible.

According to an April 2007 Gallup survey, 47% of small business owners are taking steps to being more environmentally responsible. They're learning that eco-conscious choices not only help the planet and the people on it, but boost their bottom line as well. Lower maintenance and operating costs, and a growing market share of consumers who are supporting green business make environmentally sound business a wise choice. What's more, grants like those available from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund can refund up to half the cost of installing solar panels, which quickly decreases utility costs.


 

While green operations is best tackled systematically and in phases, one simple and important step to take when creating a more sustainable business is to recycle waste generated in the office.
