5 Ways to go Green at your Office
Go Green at work – it has never been easier!
With all the various eco-friendly ways to shop and live our lives, going green at work has never been easier! But if you need a nudge on how to get started, read on. Below is a list of 5 ways we have been making an effort to GO GREEN at Blowfish Malibu.
1. Start a Green Team
Start up an office Green Team! A Green Team is an organized group of people who work together to make their environment more sustainable. They can help make the office eco-friendly by incorporating policies that will improve the carbon footprint of the company.

2. Reduce, reuse, recycle
Another great way to go green is by reducing office buying, reusing current resources and recycling what has already been used. Here is an example of how to use reduce, reuse, recycle office paper: Reduce office paper use by going paperless. Reuse office paper use by printing double-sided or repurposing the blank pages for notes. Recycle all paper in the appropriate recycle bin once the sheet is no longer needed.
3. Maximize natural light
By maximizing natural light, you keep the office lights off and reduce the amount of energy spent at your workplace. Keep those shades up and those switches off to be efficient with the natural light.
4. Opt for better office products
Speak to your office manager about using eco-friendly products for office supplies. Most of the time, your office manager has an easy way of buying the eco-friendly version of a product, but doesn’t realize it is available.
5. Invest in Tupperware
Instead of using paper or plastic waste for storing your lunch, try using tupperware! This is an easy (and cost efficient) way to bring your lunch to work!
