ba-blog-8

Do you have any idea how much you spend on energy every month? It's worth finding out because every dollar you waste eats into your profits. There is an easy way to bring your bills down straight away. All you need to focus on is becoming more environmentally-friendly.

A green business will consume a lot less energy, which means you'll save money while helping the world too. You just need to figure out how you're going to get started. Let's look at a few creative ways you can turn your office green in the coming weeks.

 

  1. Start Refilling Your Ink Cartridges

Offices will go through a huge amount of ink every month. When they're finished with the cartridges they'll be thrown away. Ink will eventually seep into the ground and it could create problems for many years to come.

That problem will disappear if you start using refillable cartridges from now on. It's also very cost effective if your printer is used non-stop. You will need to make sure you have a printer that supports them first.

 

  1. Ditch Your Outdated Dress Code

Most businesses have their own dress code depending on the industry they're in. If your employees don't see customers they should be able to wear whatever they want. If you force them to wear suits it will hurt you financially.

When someone feels comfortable they'll be a lot more productive, which means you'll make more money. You can also turn your air conditioning down to save energy and none of your employees will complain.

 

  1. Take Advantage Of Amazing Software

There is lots of software available to businesses that will help bring down their energy bills. For example, most people know traditional meetings are usually a waste of time. Employees don't need to get up from their desks to have meetings now.

It's possible to do everything through software instead. If you don't need a meeting room you can reduce the amount of office space you use. Saving everything in the cloud means you'll need less storage space too.

 

  1. Sprinkle Plants Around The Office

Nobody likes being trapped indoors all day. Can you imagine how relaxed everyone would feel if they worked outside? Even though that would be impossible you can still bring some of the outside world indoors.

Do it by sprinkling a few (low-light plants) around your office. It will be easy to keep them alive and your employees will love them. Not only will it give everyone a little boost, but it will improve the air quality too.

 

  1. Don't Leave Electronics Plugged In

Do your employees unplug their computers at the end of the day? It's much more likely they'll leave them on standby. The reason they do this is because they think it's the right thing to do.

They obviously don't know how (much phantom energy) is wasted every year. Make sure the last person to leave the building gives each outlet a quick check. It will take a while until everyone remembers to unplug consistently.

 

  1. You Should Never Buy Brand New Furniture

They say around 17 billion pounds of used furniture is sent to landfills every year. It doesn't mean there is anything wrong with it. Companies could suddenly close down and everything would be thrown away.

It makes you wonder if you really need brand new furniture when you're upgrading your office. Secondhand chairs and desks would be a lot cheaper, plus they wouldn't need to keep manufacturing new ones.

 

  1. Invest In Eco-Friendly Technologies

Now that everyone wants to become more eco-friendly they're coming up with new technologies all the time. You should begin looking at them in more depth. Start with low-E window) because they've been around for a while.

They'll keep buildings cooler during the summer months and they'll do the exact opposite in winter. If you don't want to replace the windows in your building low-E film is a much cheaper alternative.

 

You Have To Look At The Bigger Picture

Do you think any of these eco-friendly tips will make a huge difference to your bottom line? They will when you implement all of them at the same time. The money will add up quickly over the course of a year. Test them all out and you definitely won't be disappointed.
