Three Ways to Celebrate Earth Day at Work

Happy Earth Day 2015! In case you forgot to organize an activity, here are three quick and simple ways you can use it as an opportunity to make your workplace a little bit better… and maybe even save money!

  • Conserve energy by switching off lights in rooms that aren’t being used, unplugging equipment that is idle (hello underused electric pencil sharpeners!), adjust the thermostat.
  • Save paper by making double-sided copies whenever possible, minimizing hand-outs in meetings and maximizing the use of electronic documents.
  • Take a 15 minute Workplace Walkabout and pick-up trash on a beautiful spring day.

Encourage your staff to share their ideas, too! Earth Day 2015 can be part of your strategy to keep the workplace fun, engaging, and rewarding on many levels.
