Simple Steps To a Green Workplace
Jani-King leads the industry in keeping offices so fresh, clean—and even green. But taking environmentally friendly initiatives goes beyond cleaning services. Start making changes around the office that are easy to do and make all the difference.
CUT DOWN ON PAPER COPIES
On average, one office worker goes through 10,000 sheets of paper in a year. To cut down on paper use, send materials electronically. Can’t avoid printing items? Try using both sides or backs of old documents.
TURN OFF COMPUTERS
Every year, $1 billion in electricity is wasted on powering computers that aren’t in use. Make it a habit to turn off your computer or put it on sleep mode when away from your desk.
FIND SERVICES WITH GREEN VALUES
Find a cleaning service that shares the same green values, like Jani-King, that uses non-toxic, biodegradable products, microfiber systems and HEPA/ULPA vacuums.
Going green is more than just choosing a cleaning service. It’s a way of life. From painting walls to furnishing your space, make modifications with products free of volatile organic compounds. Also, consider replacing paper utensils, plates and coffee mugs with reusable ones, cutting back on additional costs and wastes.
