Today is the last week of Earth Month! Cap off weeks of celebrating our planet by learning about how your workspace can be more eco-friendly. From sustainable swaps to physical office space, there are many ways to be more “green” at work. This week, assess how eco-friendly your workspace is and aim to improve your carbon footprint with these four tips!
1. A Green Workspace
Is your office space inherently eco-friendly? A LEED certification means that a building produces less waste and is more energy-efficient. When you work in a LEED-certified space it means that no matter what, you are doing a small part in helping the environment.
2. Green Surroundings
Go green... figuratively and literally. Bring plants into the office to help offset CO2 emissions and bring more oxygen into your space. Not only do they help the environment, but they also double as decor and can brighten up any typical office room. You can also be more green by looking for a workspace with easy access to parks and other forms of transportation, like bike-share stations and public buses or metro.
3. Sustainable Swaps
Being a conscious consumer is an important step to leading a more eco-friendly lifestyle at the office. Reduce, reuse, and recycle are all principles that can be applied in the workspace, especially for sharing resources like office supplies.

4. Go Virtual
The way many of us have been working for the past year is already better for the environment. Why travel across the country for a two-hour meeting or sit in a car for hours a few times a week when work can be conducted virtually instead? At AdvantEdge Workspaces, with our state-of-the-art meeting room spaces, you will barely realize you aren’t in the same room as your colleagues. The right video conferencing technology can ensure you never have to travel far again. For those who want to remain working at home and ditch a costly commute, a shared workspace can offer virtual office packages with amenities like a business address and call answering to help you keep a professional edge.
