GO GREEN in Your Office

Go Green, Fresno Office Equipment

While most businesses want to establish greener practices in their office spaces, many are unsure where to begin, or whether their actions are even making a difference. At C.A. Reding, we are committed to helping companies Go Green, that's why we offer our Green Office Certification for offices in Fresno and beyond.

Here are a few tips to help you make your office greener.

Greener Shopping

Taking stock of your shopping habits is a great place to start. To become a greener shopper:

  • Be intentional in your purchases and look for green products (recycled materials, green certifications, etc.)
  • Shop smarter by creating larger orders instead of multiple small orders
  • Consider recycled/refurbished equipment when looking for new office supplies or furniture
  • Donate or recycle used products

Greener Habits

Ensuring that your shopping habits align with your green initiatives can help you establish green policies.

  • Promote green practices in your employees: encourage carpooling and greener travel
  • Save energy by getting into the practice of turning off lights and changing thermostat settings
  • Set standards for your employees in regards to printing, energy use, and more

Green Made Easy

Everyone knows the 3 Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. These practices are actually very easy to implement.

  • Encourage recycling by making recycling bins easy to access and intuitively located (such as paper recycling next to the printer, can recycling near the lunchroom)
  • Reduce waste by adjusting printer defaults to duplex printing and other paper-saving settings
  • Reuse scrap paper whenever possible
