Use your computer equipment wisely!
  • Get a mug instead of using disposable plastic or paper cups. If you drink 2 coffees a day, this would save around 400 plastic cups a year.
  • Think before you print. In Europe each person uses an average of around 20 kg of paper per month. Consider whether you really need to print a document or e-mail and encourage other people to do the same.
  • Encourage paperless habits. Add a note to your email signature asking your correspondents to think before printing emails.
  • Print on both sides of the paper.
  • Buy in bulk. Suggest that individual packets of coffee, sugar, cream and tea be replaced by large containers for everyone's use. This is cheaper and reduces waste.
  • Shut down your computer at night and on weekends. Even if you're not paying the bill, think of the environment.
