Whether you’re celebrating St. Patty’s Day or looking for a way to improve your little corner of the world, green is the way to go. Here’s a little bit about what we’ve been doing to decrease our carbon footprint:
YourMembership.com has made the switch to a greener environment within our offices – because we believe that every little bit counts. Even small efforts (as long as they are consistent) deliver real results. Recycling is paramount, and our Green Team stays on top of it. YourMembership.com’s Green Team is a dedicated group of company employees that volunteers to take turns taking out the recyclables! We’re talking more than aluminum cans – we have bins for paper products, plastics, cans and more.
YourMembership.com has also taken steps to minimize office printing and paper use. Our invoicing and service agreements are 100% electronic. Internal communications are also handled electronically. Even our employee handbook is an e-book! These and other environmentally-aware changes have allowed us to scale back to just two office printers… which sit by silently most of the day! It’s green AND quiet.
It’s a start and we’re always looking for ways to do more. Have any ideas? What are you doing from an organizational standpoint?
