Simple Ways to Green Your Business… And Save Some Green

Simple Ways to Green Your Business … And Save Some Green

By:Alicia Vanderschuere

Making efforts to “green” your business not only helps preserve this planet we share, but also shows your customers that your company is committed to doing its part to act responsibly. Additionally, these conservational tips will likely save you some green.

Go paperless. This is easier than ever (thanks, technology). Besides saving trees, going paperless reduces clutter and physical space required for file storage.
• Request e-billing from vendors and utility companies, and offer e-billing to your clients and customers.
• Create PDFs of important documents so you can e-mail information rather than printing and mailing it.
• Converting to an electronic filing system saves reams of paper and, very possibly, your sanity because keyword searches make important files easier to find. However, don’t forget to back up your files on an external hard drive or a secure cloud-based product.

Re-recycle. In 2013, it’s a no-brainer that your business should have recycling bins. But before you toss that piece of paper you no longer need, can you get a few more miles out of it?
• If it’s only printed on one side, cut into smaller pieces to use for scratch paper and leaving notes.
• Shred old paper and use as packing material (as long as there is no sensitive information printed on it).
• Reuse envelopes as mini-files for receipts until you do your books at the end of the month.
