Greener day by day

I started recycling at work about 2 months ago, you can read about it here. Shortly afterwords, one of the guys bought 2-18 gallon tubes and we printed out some pretty signs to make our 'recycling center' look more appealing. I think it's awesome to see the guys trying to recycle! It also makes me sad to think about how much trash we created in past years that is now sitting in landfill somewhere when it could have been recycled. Oh well, better late than never, right? We have been super busy and have at least 20 extra people working here, but still it seems like we fill the bins every month or so. :-) I also have a box under my desk for paper. I'm amazed at how long it takes me to fill my trash can now! I've emptied my box of paper twice already too!

What can you do to help your office go green?

Random-I LOVE your side bar charts! They are so cute :)

Good for you for starting recycling at work. Its hard to get people to break old habits!

Aww thanks :-) It took me forever to figure out how to add them in.

I know...I read somewhere that it takes 21 days to create a new habit...but if you stick with it then that will soon be an old habit :-)
