Each of us already knows how to be green at home. Water saving, recycling and power saving are terms we all know and trying to do at home with family. Now its time to think about the time we are spending at work, are we green at work? Do we know to save power at work? Do we care about pollution while working?
The average employee is spending around 50 hours at office every week, there are millions of desk employees and more around, are they green? Are they all green workers? Do you believe you can become greener? Here are some steps to take, some things to think about while working
Paper cups, as a human being you must drink several coffee’s daily, tea, coke, water or anything else. Are you using paper cups, if so, why? All these cups, millions of cups are thrown to the waste, don’t use them anymore. Get yourself cup from home and use it. There are some companies which ordered many cups with company name and logo for the employees, great idea.
Fast food is the number one garbage generator at work. Each MacDonald’s lunch packed with so many bags, papers, cartons and so that you actually carry more garbage than food. Try to bring food from home and heat it at work with the local microwave. This is something green worker will do.
Water is something we all like to use, but using too much. When you try to save water at home, try to save water at work. It’s true that it’s not your water, but still, its water to save.
Power saving as a way of life is something to work on, but at work is easy, you can use less power with your computer, less power at the office and you can easily save power during the daily working jobs. Saving power is the thing to do since so many reasons and the number one reason is your health. If that didn’t make you think, what will? Save power at work as you save at home to reduce global warming and pollution.
There are some steps to take in order to become green worker, think twice and become one.
