America Recycles Day was this past Sunday, but the office seemed (especially because it was a non-workday) left out of the dialog.
There’s no question that our actions can have a significant impact on the environment and that more and more people are taking steps to protect it through activities as varied as using alternative transportation (from public transportation to electric cars and hybrids) and recycling waste.
But what about the office? The office environment is the site of much waste, from overuse of paper, thanks to Information Overload, to leaving lights and computers turned on at all times. Zombie servers suck up power, leaving managers to wonder why their electric bills are so high.
Participants will receive an Executive Summary of the survey’s findings and can also enter a drawing to win a $200 gift card from American Express. Please share the survey link with colleagues; the more people who take the survey, the more we all can do to protect the environment.
