At 411 East Wisconsin Center we are committed to protecting and preserving our environment. Along with the green initiatives we have taken in the Building, we have provided tips that will aid in continuing the initiative in daily life here and at home.
Optimize the energy settings on computers and other electronic devices and make sure to shut them down at the end of each day.
Unplug printers, scanners and copiers that are only used occasionally as these electronic devices still use electricity when powered off.
Turn off all lights and any audio/visual equipment that are not being used.
Keep things digital and minimize the use of materials and paper whenever possible.
Implement the use of recycled materials such as recycled paper whenever possible.
Bringing lunch and using reusable food and beverage containers saves unnecessary waste and lowers costs. If you order take-out, join co-workers in large orders to minimize waste of small individual packaging.
Bring in mugs/glasses/utensils to reduce the use of paper/plastic goods.
Use eco-friendly cleaning products where possible.
