Celebrate Earth Day by implementing several eco-friendly technology practices and products. They help conserve the environment and save money.
Implement Clear Screen Habits
Encourage your employees to adopt a clear screen habit. This practice involves turning off or switching their unused devices to standby mode. The cumulative savings improve the environment, your company’s cybersecurity, and your bottom line.
Power With Smart Wall Plugs
Because most of your electronic devices use power, select plugs that monitor energy use. Data collected by a smart wall plug suggests eco-friendly usage changes, and the devices can even reduce power to energy-hogging electronics.
Utilize Eco-Friendly Printing Practices
Conserve resources when you change your printer’s default settings and usage practices. Avoid printing in color, always print on both sides of the paper, and remind employees to print fewer copies For example, create a digital employee manual and use whiteboards instead of handouts during staff meetings.
Reduce Toxins with Smart Air Purifiers
Dust, pollen, and other environmental toxins affect air quality and employee health. Smart air purifiers remove these toxins and are controlled by your voice or an online website or app.
Purchase Sustainable Office Supplies
When possible, purchase office supplies that conserve resources. Start with eco-friendly cleaning supplies. Then select products made from recycled or post-consumer materials, such as recycled USB flash drives. You can also opt for refillable pens, digital paper, and staple-free staplers that reduce waste.
Recycle Whenever Possible
Recycling makes a positive environmental impact. Set up recycling bins for plastics, glass, and paper, and recycle rather than toss used ink cartridges and worn electronic devices.
Invest in Smart Thermostats
Improve efficiency and remain comfortable thanks to smart thermostats. They’re programmable and reduce energy usage when the office is empty. Plus, they provide usage reports that enhance your conservation efforts.
Change the Lightbulbs
LED bulbs reduce energy usage without compromising light quality. In addition to changing the lightbulbs, install smart lighting with motion detection technology that turns lights on when employees enter their offices.
Install a Smart Water Filter
Staying hydrated improves employee focus and productivity. Install a smart water filter in the break room to encourage hydration. This device also reduces your reliance on single-use plastic bottles and eliminates a variety of harmful contaminants from water.
This month, your company can celebrate Earth Day by implementing several eco-friendly tech practices and products. Remember to contact your insurance agent and update your cybersecurity insurance if you upgrade to smart devices as you remain secure while saving the environment and cutting costs.
