The trend toward more eco-friendly has accelerated over the last decade, but changes have increased more quickly as a result of the pandemic. It is now more important than ever that companies behave in a more sustainable way and that includes the home office.
It’s time to start thinking about how to make your home office green. Whether you’re concerned about increased energy bills or the impact you’re having on the environment, there are lots of things you can do to make your home office green.
Here are a few things you can do:
1. Let the sun shine in
Use as much natural light as you can. Place your desk near a large window to cut down on the use of another lighting source. If you still do not have enough light, try a solar-powered desk lamp.
2. Save the trees
If you can, go paperless. With the advanced tech, we have today we should be able to get away with little to no paper use. Did you know the average employee uses over 10,000 sheets of paper annually?
3. Get a green thumb
Adding a plant to your desk will not only liven up your workspace but it can be a great way to make your home office greener. Plants help reduce pollution in the air which will help you and the earth breathe a little easier.
Consider getting a water filtration system for your home and ditch the single-use plastic.
