EAT. SLEEP. RECYCLE. ~ Your Weekly Green

As most of you know I consider myself a little bit of a tree hugger and try to conserve and reuse both professionally and personally. With that being said, I thought I'd start sharing a few tips with you on how you can also make little changes...

Did you know that even changing the settings on your printer can help? There are around 240 million printer cartridges that end up in landfills every year. You can extend the life of your printer cartridge by printing in draft mode, which uses less ink. When the cartridge is empty, you can recycle them. We go to Stanton Office Supplies on Main Street in Honesdale to return our empty cartridges but other office supplies stores such as Staples do the same and you can earn rewards toward other ink cartridge purchases. 

Use recycled paper (it's really not that different) and think about what truly needs to be printed. For in-house documents, print on both sides. And every blank inch becomes scrap.

I love being able to share this info and keep this gorgeous planet thriving! Remember, anything you do can really make a difference!
