  • Switch out all bulbs in your office for CFLs. You will not only cut down on carbon dioxide emissions as well as saving up to $45 a year per bulb. It’s a win-win for everybody.
  • Put reminders in your calendar to shut off your computer at the end of every workday. If you can, go an extra step and unplug unused electronics from the outlet.
