Simple cost-effective initiatives can get you started with being green!

Whether you own your own real-estate or rent the following is easy and cheap to implement. Share this with your landlord and ask them to foot the bill and it may in fact cost you nothing.

With the growing environmental need for companies to go green, the issue of how to do so without placing the company in strain is one that can be resolved in simple cost-effective ways. Small things can be done to help preserve the environment and cost companies very little start-up costs.

One way a company can help with the carbon footprint, is to implement recycling. By having receptacles for cans, paper, and plastic around the office, employees are encouraged to recycle their waste instead of letting it all go to a landfill.

For companies that deal with confidential information, there are secure shredding and recycling companies that will pick up the paper waste, shred the paper, and then recycle it. The cost of these companies is minimal and they conveniently empty the bins weekly.
