It may still be on the tail-end of summer but we’re still dreaming about green. The warmth of the outdoors, green grass, and frost-free windows is our biggest wish in these summer months.

No matter what industry you’re in, going green is a necessity and marks responsible, efficient business practices. So what steps should you take to ensure that you’re doing everything you can around the office? Better Office Systems is here to give you a few tips on the best Green business practices.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Recycling is the biggest and greatest step you can take as a business, yet very few businesses have done so. Initiate a recycling plan for you and your employees and stick to it. It goes beyond just conserving paper, many parts and products can be sent to their manufacturer to be recycled. Make sure you utilize this great opportunity and do your part for environmental responsibility.

Print What You Need

Think before you print is a practice every office should use. It’s easy to simply press “Ctrl+p” without a second thought but urge your employees, as well as yourself, to really think about what they’re printing and how much. With innovations in technology, notes and research can largely be done digitally.

Dig Into Duplex

The unsung hero of the printing world is definitely double-sided printing. Cut your paper usage by 50% by switching your policy to double sided printing when applicable.

Color Your Print Processes Green

Innovations in technology and BYOD has made it easier than ever to stay connected and inform. Consider using your technology to replace notes or documents. Use an iPad, share things digitally, make the most out of what you have.

Choose Green Solutions

Always choose green office solutions. Machines that are Energy Star qualified and include duplexing capabilities are efficient and environmentally responsible. You can also take a closer look at your inks and paper, is it non-toxic inks? Soy or vegetable-based? Is the paper recycled? Remember; every little bit helps!
