How to Make Your Office Space Greener

In big ways and small ways, many of us are looking for ways to make a positive impact on the environment. For some, that may mean installing low-flow water fixtures at home, or re-committing to becoming a great recycler in the kitchen. Others may grow an expansive garden as a way of encouraging wildlife, or even ditch the throw-away coffee cups. But when it comes to our actions, what we do at work may be an important part of the environmental equation. That’s because we spend a lot of time there, and do many of the things that we do elsewhere, such as throw away trash, cook and eat food, and rely on paper and other supplies.

So what can you do at work in order to boost how you’re saving on waste and being mindful of consumption? Well, it’s helpful to break an office space down into areas and tackle them one at a time, starting with the reception space. This graphic offers some ideas.
