Everyone is trying to go green these days! From home life to company life, going green helps reduce energy use and create a more stable and healthy environment. If you want to create a more eco-friendly workspace, try incorporating some of these green computing tips.

Print on Both Sides

In today’s world, it is easy for businesses to cut down on paper usage by relying more on computers and other devices. But even with the help of mobile devices, you may find yourself needing to print out a few items. Make the most of your printing needs by using both sides of the paper. This will help you maintain a greener work environment and consolidate important documents to avoid clutter.

Turn Computers Off When They Are Not In Use

Many employees are guilty of leaving their computers running all day, even when they are not sitting down and using them. Turning electronics off when they are not in use is a simple and highly effective way to create a greener working environment. Encourage employees to turn computers off when they leave for lunch and other times when they are not using them. Employees can also learn more about the energy-saving features on their computers to cut down on usage.

Switch to Laptops

Laptops typically use less power than desktop computers, making them a great choice for office employees. If your team currently uses desktop computers, consider making the switch to energy-saving laptops. Employees who do not need large screens or full desktop computers can easily complete their work with these devices.

Use Cloud Computing

Your company may be able to get rid of some electronic devices taking up space and using energy! Cloud computing lets you store different types of information virtually, meaning you do not need to save it to physical items kept in the office.
