Are you committed to being "green" in your office? Are you the person who always turns off the lights in the conference room after people have used it? How about the one who goes through the trash and sifts out the compost and recycle? OK, you probably don’t take it that far. But if you find yourself thinking about small ways to reduce your environmental impact in your office you should take the inititative to certify your workplace as a Green Office and you can become a Paper Reduction Pro!

Why become a Certified Green Office?
