Earth Day 2009 - Greening Your Home Office

Posted by Valencia on April 20th, 2009

Until two years ago, the phrase “Earth Day” meant absolutely nothing to me. I cared about the environment, but not enough to modify my personal habits. I was wasteful, I didn’t recycle, and I preferred my toxic chemicals over biodegradable products. But something changed. I don’t know exactly when the change occurred, or why. Maybe it had to do with age or maturity. But about two years ago I became environmentally aware, and I wanted to make a difference - or at least do my part to preserve the environment.

From that point forward I decided to “green” my life - and I started with my home office. This is where I spend a large percentage of my time during the day. And after a close evaluation - I use a lot of energy. But I found ways to cut back….

  • Turn off the air conditioner and open a window
  • Buy recycled ink cartridges
  • Print double-sided copies
  • Use less printer paper and ink by saving documents on my computer (besides, hard copies create more clutter)
  • Get rid of the Glade plug-in and light a candle
  • Keep the lights turn off - open the blinds
  • Recycle scrap paper and water bottles
  • Turn off the radio, television and computer when you leave the room
  • Use energy-efficient light bulbs

It’s interesting how they will carry out the initiation of steps for proper implementation of the initiative for government recognition.

While the focus of this article is on the benefits of the study, we think expanding the reach to cover costs is a positive step toward increasing awareness and reducing negative impact on our environment.
