Green Summit 2008: Eight ways to think green

As brainstorming continues, a green notepad from the NSF is circulating the room, with a pen clipped to the top made of recycled currency. On it, they offer eight ways to think green at the desktop:

  • Consider the environment before you print
  • Opt for printing double-sided documents
  • If you need to share documents with colleagues – use Sharepoint
  • Shut off your monitor when away from your computer
  • Every time you leave the room for awhile, turn off the lights
  • Recycle paper, plastic, and aluminum
  • Voltage matters -- Turn off printers and unplug mobile chargers when not in use
  • Encourage others to go green!
