Think Green in 2013, Part 1
EON helps offices stay environmentally friendly with a large selection of green products and recycling programs. “Greening” your office will not only help the environment, but potentially save money for you and your company. Here are some ideas for cutting down waste and saving energy in your office, as well as suggestions of eco-friendly products from EON.
Turning off lights you aren’t using is a good start, but replacing incandescent bulbs with energy-saving fluorescent or LED bulbs will help cut down on energy costs as well. You can also set timers or motion sensors on lights, so they will turn off when a room is not in use. Don’t forget natural lighting, either- sunlight is free and great for elevating your mood, so dim your indoor lights when a window is enough. Another solution for taking your lighting further is adding mirrors and reflective surfaces to your workspace. Each reflection will seem to double the amount of light in your workspace.
