In celebrating Earth Day, one of our very favorite special days of the year, this month’s blog posts have surrounded the topic of greening the workplace and keeping it lively, and at the same time respecting our planet. To continue with the theme of “green”, I would like to share with you a number of my favorite articles pertaining to ways in which you can green your work space:
The David Suzuki website is a great place to start! The article is brief, but it gives a very nicely organized snapshot of the “5 Easy Ways to Go Green at Work.” The five ways, described by the author of this article, include the following: commute smarter, save energy, live healthier, waste less, and conserve water. Each item in the list shows simply how you can help the environment by making one small change at a time. To read the entire article, click here.
If you have employees that work in a shared office environment, you may find this next article as interesting as I do. This Environmental Leader article, written by Briana Davis of National Purity, discusses Three Ways Green Cleaning Can Increase Your Bottom Line. I’ll have to admit, I didn’t find the title very intriguing, although the content of the article gives the reader some things to consider when it comes to companies taking care of their employees in an environmentally friendly sort of way. You can find the article here.
I like this next article because it digs deeper into the effects of “going green.” In this case, Mike Lothian writes about how “plants reduce stress and increase productivity in the workplace.” He backs his article up well, and it’s an interesting read. Go ahead and find the article here.
Have fun making your workplace greener, healthier for the people in it, and better for the planet!
