Reuse and Recycle
The most valuable advice I’ve seen is to stock non-disposable office supplies (mechanical pencils, reusable pens, and refillable printer cartridges, just to name a few). You might also consider putting recycle bins next to printers and photocopiers, and encouraging employees to telecommute more. Finally, monitor systems that are left running when they don’t need to be and turn them off.

This is a pretty straightforward way to save trees and energy. Most financial institutions and many other business services offer an option to “go paperless.” By simply opting to receive statements and correspondence electronically, you can save a ton of wasted paper and all of the corresponding energy used to process and transport that paper. It’s an easy way to go green.
