Green as in the color of money

February 7th, 2014

There are many ways for your company and for you to become greener. Have you tried to source lighting lately?

Today’s post is by Brad Westfall; Account Manager at SafeSourcing.

Green is not just a color to me. Green makes me think about spring, and the start of life from the deep hibernation of winter. Green is the grass that grows or the leaves that sprout from the bare trees. Aside from green being the color of life, green is also a movement. The green movement not only saves energy and reduces harmful greenhouse gases; it also saves you the most important green of all. Money!

Targeting just a small portion of your spend can save you money in the long term. Take lighting for example. At this moment, common T12 florescent lighting is being phased out. Why not take this time to make the switch? While the upfront cost are a little more than a T12, T5 lights only 5% of their life compared to the 46% of T12s, and according to greensite.com can save you up to 78% of your lighting expenses based on energy usage .
