First Quarter Check-up: How Green Is Your Business So Far?

March 22, 2009

It’s now mid March and we’re closing in on completion of the first quarter of 2009, so how are you doing on your goal of going green at your business this year?   Shall we run down the checklist?

Are you using more recycled products, even for just a few days every month, in your printing and waste paper uses?   Every little bit helps and since they are a touch more expensive (and we’re all watching our pennies) sometimes it’s all we can do to work on it a few days at a time.

Are you asking customers whether they’re interested in electronic billing to cut down paper usage and then of course recycling your own waste paper?  This is very important and can help benefit two ways: 1) fewer trees are cut down and 2) fewer landfills are needed.  Same goes for aluminum cans.  Recycling, right?

You’ve gotten rid of the old fluorescent light bulbs and replaced them with energy efficient CFLs, which saves on energy and money, since these bulbs are made to provide light for more years than the old ones.

All lights, including the after hours signs, are now on timers. 

You’re encouraging carpools among your office staff, whether by offering reserved better parking spaces or by chipping in for carpool resources. 

You’ve gotten rid of those paper plates in the company lunch room, and put in a supply of unbreakable glass plates (yes, they DO make ‘em!) to save more on paper.  Employees are struggling, but learning to put the dishes in the energy efficient dishwasher.

And computers, where possible, are laptops.  This keeps electricity usage down nice and low. 

If you’re doing some or all of these things, you’re off to a great start to Greenify your business, save some cash and help to save the environment.

So why did he do it then? If Nicolas Anelka’s quenelle gesture was so guileless and innocent, why did he introduce it to a goal celebration in front of a worldwide audience? Not anti-Semitic?
