Steps Become An Environmentally-Friendly Small Businesses

Ways to Make Your Business More Sustainable

After the recent report from the UN last month stating that we only have 12 years left to curb climate change, it’s time to make changes – fast. Individuals, communities, and businesses alike are making small but impactful changes to better planet earth and protect our only home. Check out our top tips on making your business more energy-efficient, sustainable, and greener!

Invest in green office supplies.

In the U.S alone, over four million disposable pens are thrown away every day. That’s just pens! Your business can make changes like switching to reusable pens which simply have their inks refilled. Not only do they work out cheaper in the long-term, but they help to reduce the waste produced by your small businesses.

Go paperless.

Ideally, your business could operate without paper. We know that this isn’t quite an option yet, so make conscious efforts to cut back on paper usage. Do you really need to send that letter via the post office – can you send an email instead? Do you need to print out that document? In addition to cutting down on your paper consumption, when you do buy paper, choose the recycled kind.

Make your office more energy efficient.

From sealing up drafty windows and doors to powering down computers at night, there are lots of ways you can save energy (and money!) on utility bills. Invest in low-energy lighting, implement energy-efficient HVAC equipment, and turn the lights off when not in use.

Recycle.

We hope you already have recycling bins in your office. Recycling cans, bottles, paper, cardboard, and plastic has never been easier. Ensure your team knows which bins are for which material, and you will rapidly see how much that has an impact on your trash.

Encourage employees to go green.

Keep your team in the loop about your eco-friendly principles and what steps you are taking. They may even have ideas to improve the office’s eco-friendliness. Encourage them to adopt similar practices in their home life so that we can all better the planet.
