3D Merchant is GREEN

I’m a big environmental protection supporter and always have been. Here are some things that make our office ‘green’:

THE GREEN OFFICE GOAL: ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE MANAGEMENT

At home, or in the office, the general goals of environmentally responsible management are the same:

* to make the most efficient use of resources — materials, energy and water;

* and to minimize contamination, chemical and otherwise, of the environment.

PAPER:
– always print 2 sided
– don’t print unless it’s really needed
– buy only recycled paper

LIGHTING:
– Finally replaced all the bulbs with CFL’s
– always turn off when not in the room

WATER:
– filtered water system, not bottled water

RECYCLING:
– All paper (including shredded), magazines, and corrugated recycled
– recycle print and toner cartridges

REUSE:
– Use cups & mugs, flatware and plates, not disposables
– Ever print a web page and it ran an extra page with just the URL or something small on it? We save them and cut into note scrap paper.

TRANSPORTATION:
– Trips to bank are planned with other travel
– Bike, walk when possible
