most of us spend our days at work, there are an abundance of
opportunities to save energy, conserve water, and reduce our waste. Some
of these things include:
Purchasing compostable utensils, cups and other tableware for use at events where convenience matters most.
Most people are unaware of the toxicity in everyday office products like furniture, ink, paper and plastics. One way to assure that toxicity and other impacts is considered is through an environmentally preferable purchasing (EPP) program in your office.
Encouraging your coworkers to collect and recycle aluminum cans, paper and other recyclable materials.
Recycled-Content Office Paper
Use recycled office paper for your most frequent printing needs. Look for paper made with at least 30% postconsumer recycled content. For more information about recycled content and environmentally preferable paper, visit Conservatree.
Transportation to Get to Work
Use the bus, a carpool, vanpool, your bike, or your own two feet to get to work. Check out the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada’s Rideshare Program to learn more about your travel options and incentives for making the switch.
