How to be Green in your Home Office

Here are a few tips to help you be a bit more earth friendly while working in your home office Print only what you need.

  • Print on recycled or wheat straw paper when you do print.

We have 10 sheet sample packs of wheat straw paper available for free here.

  • Set your computer to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity.
  • Reuse boxes to create storage by upcycling them into magazine holders, find a tutorial here.
  • If you won’t be using your computer for several hours, shutdown completely instead of putting it to sleep.
  • Recycle ink and toner cartridges

Many stores now accept inkjet cartridges, I recently dropped a bunch of mine at a bin at my local Target store. Best Buy, Staples, Office Depot, Whole Foods just to name a few are other stores that accept inkjet cartridges.
