Since we’re making our way though The Great Paper Purge: From Piles to Paperless series and we’re talking about ways to go green this month, I thought it would be helpful to talk about resources used to merge the two. I still have much to learn about going green in the office so I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments. For now, though, here are a few tools that can help you have less clutter and be more eco-friendly in the office.
Evernote has the capability to store images, documents, PDF’s, ebooks, videos, receipts, voice recordings…just about anything! It’s a fantastic resource for going paperless.
It’s difficult to be entirely paperless so if you do have a few straggling papers lying around, you could always try a staple free stapler instead of the real thing. Honestly, I didn’t know such a thing existed until recently but I’m excited to try it out. Since there isn’t a need to keep extra staples on hand, it frees up some storage space…and that I like!
A shredder is helpful to hide your personal information included in all that junk mail you receive. But, it can also provide the perfect filling for reusable gift bags or packing material for shipping boxes. Double duty at it’s best!
You can also go green in your office by turning off computers and unplugging lamps, power-strips, etc. from outlets when not in use. It will save on energy usage as well as out of pocket costs. Lowering expenses is my favorite reason for going green!
I’d love to hear from you! What ideas do you have for going green in the office?
