It’s worth remembering that businesses produce more carbon emissions than households. So next time you’re searching for business services, why not choose an eco-friendly provider? Eco-business services are more sustainable, cause less harm to the planet and importantly in today’s environment they are also more efficient and cost less to run!
It’s easy to make your office green and save money. Consider making it paperless. Change to energy efficient light bulbs, switch electrical equipment off when not in use, insulate the building, recycle paper, bottles, cans and plastic. Reduce water consumption (especially toilet flushing by installing water saving devices cheaply and quickly). And turn down the thermostat.
How to turn your office green
