Optimize your computer.
Make it a habit to turn-off and unplug your computer at the end of the day. Also, set your computer to energy-saving settings.
Turn off all lights in any room not in use for 15 minutes or more. Use natural light whenever possible.

Make it a routine to print on both sides or use the back sides of old documents for faxes, scrap paper and drafts. Also, consider switching to recycled paper or paper made from natural sources such as bamboo, hemp and organic cotton.
Print and photocopy in fast draft mode. You save ink, time and money.
Time to go paperless.
The greenest paper is not using paper at all. Practice posting announcements and documents such as employeesâ manual online, rather than distributing printed copies. It is also easier to update.
You could recycle just about any kind of paper you would encounter in an office. Remember, place recycling bins in high-traffic areas and provide clear information about recycling.
Commute to save gas.
Driving for many hours in traffic wastes a lot of gas. Join a carpool or take public transit. Better yet, bike or walk if you live near your office.

The latest innovative technologies have made telecommuting a reality. If you can -- take classes online, hold phone conferences or work at home.
