There are many options, such as installing solar power panels on the roof of the building to switching from gasoline-powered vehicles to hybrid or purely electric cars to make deliveries.

If you are interested in “going green” at your business, you can find plenty of valuable information through the Green for All organization’s website. Green for All’s goal is to build a strong, green economy that will bring people out of poverty.

For example, you will want to check out the free e-book entitled “10 Green Business Ideas for New Entrepreneurs” which you can download from the site. It includes valuable tips on topics such as green transportation, landscaping and plumbing, for example, as well as business opportunities that help preserve the environment.

You’ll also want to download and read the organization’s “Going Green: A Guide to Greening Your Business.” It provides small business owners with information on topics such as conserving energy and water and how to reduce paper waste. There is even a section on creating more green-collar jobs in your local community.

California Green Business Owners Reduce Their Company’s Carbon Footprint

We often hear about reducing our carbon footprint, but what does this actually mean? To put it simply, your carbon footprint is how much carbon dioxide you release through burning fossil fuels. These emissions contribute to global warming and are bad for the environment.

By using energy more efficiently, such as by switching from conventional incandescent light bulbs to fluorescent or LED lights, you use less power, which in turn reduces the amount of pollution produced by power plants.

Quick Tips for Going Green:

  • Use digital documents instead of paper when possible
  • Recycle and reuse
  • Use eco-friendly cleaning products
  • Install a smart thermostat to use your HVAC equipment more efficiently

At Sergeant Shredder, our team of knowledgeable professionals is committed to protecting our planet’s natural resources. This is why we are proud to offer eco-friendly shredding services with regular pick-ups and conveniently located drop-off locations. We recycle 100% of everything we shred.
