The steps to creating a green work-at-home office space are only as time-consuming as you want them to be. However the steps are easy and affordable.
Energy Conservation and Efficiency
The first step to any green office is to ensure that you are conserving energy and the energy you are using is being used in an efficient manner. Creating an efficient office is fairly easy. You will first need to replace any items that are currently running on electrical current that have the ability to run on rechargeable batteries. An example of these would be swapping out a wired keyboard for a wireless keyboard, swapping out a wired mouse for wireless mouse and using a battery recharging system for phones and batteries that runs on solar power. To conserve the most amount of energy possible and to reduce your energy costs, place all of your electrical equipment on power strips. This helps use the energy efficiently when it is in use and makes it easier to conserve energy when not in use. When you are not using your computer or the items attached to your power strip, simply unplug the power strip from the wall and you will not only the conserving energy you will be reducing your power bill. The simple steps can reduce the power bill for a home office and a home in general as much as 45% in the first billing cycle.
Eco-Friendly Products and Services
Unfortunately, many work-at-home office entrepreneurs tend to stop creating a green office with the energy conservation and efficiency step. A green work-at-home office will not only be energy efficient and conserve energy when energy is not in use, it will also have to eat differently products and services. Try to use as many biodegradable and reusable products as possible. Instead of using disposable water bottles switch your water bottle to a reusable metal or neoprene bottle. Instead of using a traditional wireless keyboard that runs on a rechargeable battery consider using a solar powered keyboard. These keyboards do not need natural sunlight and can run off of fluorescent lighting. Reduce the amount of printing you do by connecting your Smartphone to your computer and allowing yourself to go paperless. This will also do reduce the cost of ink cartridges and paper products. Make sure that you are using eco-friendly products such as eco-friendly pens, paper products and cleaning products. Cleaning products within the green work-at-home office will help to maintain the eco-friendly status.
These are only a few of the options to create a green work-at-home office. However, with these options you will reduce the cost of your energy bills, reduce waste and reduce your costs of operating the work-at-home office.
