Tips For Our Employees
Energy - Turn off your computer completely when you are going to be away from your desk for more than two hours. That includes turning off your monitor! Ditto for desk lights. If you work in a lab turn off your lights and close your fume hood.
Paper - Think before you print or make copies. If you really need a copy, then make sure you double-side print. Before printing, see if reducing margins will fit more on fewer pages.
Petroleum - Walk or take public transit to work. If you must drive, carpool. Take public transportation or carpool to your next meeting. Even better, don't go at all! Meet via a conference call, webinar or Video Tele-conference. If you have a vehicle that can run on E85 fuel, fill it with that instead of gas; a list of Region III E85 Stations (PDF) (3 pp, 58K, About PDF) [may only be viewed by EPA employees] is in each vehicle.
Supplies - Use used supplies when available instead of new ones. Put unneeded supplies in your office's supply cabinet or return them to the Supply Room. Use the EPA Supplies Corporate Express website to order "green" office supplies.
Recycle – Each of our facilities has its own recycling program.
Waste – Get and use a re-usable mug for coffee or water. When getting take-out say "no" to condiments you won't use. Bring your snacks in reusable containers.
Get Involved - Everyone has a footprint icon on their computer screen. It will take you to the Region 3 EMS website, where you will find more information about our EMS and opportunities to participate. Encourage others to participate also and find out who in your organization is on the local EMS team.
