It helps to know that the indoor air quality (IAQ) is one of the basic issues for a Green office or building. First of all, it may help to point out that the best definition for Green is the Health Impact of our actions. Green is been stretched to mean anything environmental, but it is best understood as a health concern. Sustainability refers to management of our resources. The cleaning supplies, vacuums, and cleaning processes play a major part in a building’s indoor air quality.

Five simple steps you can take today to help build a greener environment in the workplace:
The average office worker goes through 12,000 sheets of photocopy paper each year. Printing on both sides or using the backside of old documents for faxes, scrap paper or drafts will help conserve paper. Avoid color printing when you’re printing a draft.
Maximize computer efficiency
Computers in the business sector unnecessarily waste $1.2 billion worth of electricity a year. Make it a habit to turn off your computer when you leave for the day. During the day, set your computer to go to sleep during short breaks, which can help cut energy use by 68 percent.
Use green cleaning products
Make sure your cleaning services company uses nontoxic and biodegradable cleaning products. Buy furniture, carpeting and paint that are free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and don’t produce toxic chemicals.
Bring your own coffee mug
Eliminate disposable plates, cups and utensils and encourage employees to bring re-usable containers from home. Use refillable soap dispensers and recycled paper or cloth towels in the bathroom and kitchen.
Hire an eco-friendly cleaning company
Only hire a Green Clean Certified company.
