Earth Day Tech Tips!
Earth Day is April 22nd, and we’ve put together a few ways you can make a difference.
While it doesn’t have to be Earth Day to make some improvements to your computer and office habits, it’s a good time to take stock of our behavior and how it can affect the environment.
Of course, if that’s not enough of a reason, there’s always the bonus of saving some cash too!
Here are a few simple steps you can take to “go green”:
Reduce energy consumption by utilizing your computer’s power saver options.
Turn off your computer at night, both to conserve energy and to reduce heat stress on your machine.
Donate or recycle your “outdated” electronics instead of throwing them out.
Consider purchasing “reusable” or “refillable” printer cartridges.
Upgrade to an LCD monitor to reduce energy usage by more than half.
Reduce paper usage by printing double-sided when possible.
