Yesterday may have been Earth Day, but there are small things we can do every day to help our planet. With mountains of paper files and messy desks, offices easily morph into the poster child for waste- but then can change. This year, it’s time to be more “green” at work. Here are 10 ways you can impact the planet and simplify your work life at the same time.
With Earth Day approaching next week, April is a great time to think about your impact on the environment. By now, everyone knows the usual tips. Use your car less, recycle, turn the water off when you brush your teeth, etc. But we rarely talk about our carbon footprints at work.

Now more than ever people are environmentally conscious. This plays a key factor in many people’s spending habits, food purchases, homes, lifestyles, and now, the workplace. The phrase “going green” usually brings up images of recycling, waste-free practices, and driving hybrids. However, most adults do not realize that their workspace has a huge impact on the environment. Just like bringing reusable bags to the grocery store, partaking in a shared workspace environment helps reduce waste and create a more sustainable planet. Here are some reasons why switching to a shared workspace will help the planet!
Day in and day out, many people dread their commutes. From sitting in gridlock traffic to crowded metro cars, getting to work is often one's least favorite part of the day- and sometimes the most frustrating.

It can be daunting at first, but once you have a route, gear, and a plan you’ll be surprised by how much this one change can transform your work days.

Check out local events to see how you can get involved (there may even be free food and t-shirts along the way). Still not convinced?
