Make an extra effort to turn out the lights. Purchase
and use energy star rated light bulbs in all fixtures
to cut down on the amount of energy used. Energy star
bulbs typically use two thirds less energy! Install
timers and or motion sensors that automatically shut
off lights after hours or when they are not needed.
Every night at the end of the day shut computers to
conserve additional energy. When upgrading or purchasing
new computer hardware make every effort to purchase
energy-saving computers, monitors, and printers.
Print on both sides of paper, use old computers as scrap
paper. Avoid color printing and print in draft mode
whenever possible. Use recycled paper, it may be slightly
more expensive. Recycle office paper, if security is
a concern shred it first.
