How to Turn Your Home Office into a Green Office
Take advantage of natural light
Exposure to sunlight improves attention, performance and mood. Position your desk near a window and make use of natural light during the day.
Unplug your devices when you are not using them
Consider using a smart power strip; it cuts off power automatically when a device is not in use. In addition, if you’re going to take a break longer than 20 minutes, don’t forget to put your laptop on sleep mode.
Reduce paper usage
Producing recycled paper causes 74% less pollution than making virgin paper. In addition, recycling involves about 40% less energy consumption, less water use and generates fewer emissions than producing not-recycled paper – plus, more forests saved!
Decor with plants
Plants are great allies for productivity and a good mood. Some studies showed that plants reduce pollutants in the air – although there is no evidence this will be beneficial for household air quality.
Adapt to the temperature, don’t turn up/down the thermostat
Turning down your main thermostat to 18° will cut your heating bills straight away, and you should not feel much difference. Wear more layers if you start feeling cold, or place a hot water bottle or heating pad on your lap and you’ll instantly feel the difference.
