Many of us have taken our earth's resources for granted, and it continues to become apparent that we need to change how we live in order to conserve our planet for future generations. It is vital that we change our lifestyle habits, both at home and at work, to preserve our resources. Over 1 billion trees worth of paper are thrown out every year - a number that continues to rise and continues to affect our environment negatively.


Here are some starter tips for kicking off your Green Team at home and at work:


Turn Off the Lights

- turn off the lights if you plan to leave the room for more than 15 minutes

- install motion sensors or timers on outside lights instead of leaving them on continuously

- take advantage of the natural light that comes into your home and office by placing seats near windows

- recycle electronics that you do not need
