Green Tips

At theMART, we are committed to green initiatives. Here are some tips and links to help you go green at work and at home.

  • Optimize power settings on computers and electronic devices. Shut down at the end of the day.
  • Unplug printers, scanners, and copiers only used occasionally.
  • Turn off all lights and any audio/visual equipment not being used.
  • Use revolving doors when possible.
  • Be conscious of printing: can it be double-sided or kept digital?
  • Purchase recycled materials, such as recycled paper.
  • Bring lunch and use reusable containers to save unnecessary waste and personal costs.
  • Bring in mugs, glasses, and utensils.
  • Try to notice what uses energy and water, and what creates waste. Simply raising your awareness positively changes habits.
