In the interest of re-energizing the office, we had a seating arrangement surprise this week here at Recyclebank's headquarters! With this seating chart shake up came the opportunity to clean house, de-clutter, and rearrange, so we dove deep into the Live Green archives and gathered some tips to make the move greener — even if it was just moving a cube or two over! Here's what we did:
We used greener, multipurpose cleaning products.
We used gentle, green products that could clean lots of surfaces, from desktops to dusty abandoned drawers. Plus, by using fewer products and opting for concentrated ones, we cut down on packaging and the energy used for shipping. Read More Green Cleaning Tips >
We worked with the moving supplies we had.
Between everyone in the office, we had plenty of boxes hoarded under our desks to supply the move, so there was no need to purchase or rent supplies. Instead, we shared the boxes that we had and got moving! Read More About Green Moving >
We ditched the clutter.
The move was a great time to rid our desks of the things we no longer used. We dropped off all our unwanted goods in one place and then the office went shopping for "new supplies"! Read More Green Decluttering Tips >
Now that I'm settled, it's time to spice up my desktop with some personality. Any office space decorating tips to share? Looking for green ideas, as always!
