Tips to Make Your Business Greener and More Secure

Most businesses today recycle their paper documents as part of their commitment to sustainable practices. But if youre not recycling paper securely, your good intentions could lead to a security breach.

By partnering with Shred-it for secure document destruction, we can make sure that every piece of paper you discard stays safe from the time it leaves your hands to the moment its shredded and then recycled.

3 Simple Ways to Be More Green at Work

These tips can save the earth and save your company money too:

1. Watts up: You would never leave home with all the lights on, computers and printers running, so

why is it OK to do this at the office? Using a power strip for devices like computers, lights and printers makes it easy to shut down an entire desktop

at once.

2. Light for less: Artificial lighting accounts for 44% of the electrical use in office buildings. As your

current light bulbs burn out, replace them with Energy Star-rated light bulbs and fixtures, which use at least 2/3 less energy than regular lighting.1

3. Smarter heating: Create an after hours and weekend thermostat setting. If you know your

employees arent going to be in the office, use a lower setting that conserves more energy during these hours. Be sure to allow an override function so that it can be changed if someone decides to come in to work.

Go green!

Every ton of recycled paper can save:

17 trees, which will absorb 250 lbs. of carbon dioxide each year

380 gallons of oil

4,000 kilowatts of energy

3 cubic yards of landfill space

7,000 gallons of water

Per ton, that equals a 65% energy savings, 58% in water savings and 60 lbs. less air pollution.2

work. For those with a longer commute, investigate sources of public transportation or carpool with a co-worker/neighbor.

2. Use recyclable shopping bags: If every household in the U.S. reused a paper grocery bag for one shopping

trip, about 60,000 trees would be saved.3
