Workplace Greening Tips

As many companies begin to return to the office, this creates the perfect opportunity to incorporate green practices that enhance sustainability and reduce environmental impact. Below are few things you can do as you operate throughout your day-to-day in the workplace.

  • Share printed files with coworkers. This reduces ink and printer usage. Also having digital copies of documents allows others to access them from their computers.*

  • Donate gently used materials. Donate books and manuals to others in need instead of throwing them away;* start a neighborhood Library Box.  

  • Telecommute when possible. Working from home is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint over commuting.* On the days you drive to the office, consider managing your trips with CleanSteps®. Visit to learn more.

  • Use non-toxic cleaning products when cleaning. Choose products with natural substances over hazardous chemicals.*

Adapting a green lifestyle in the workplace, elevates our environment to a cleaner and brighter future. To learn more about how you can go green with WGL Energy visit or call (888) 422-4001 to receive more information about our greening partnerships.
