April 2008

2008 Spirit of St Louis MarathonSpring is here and across the country, millions of people are lacing up their running shoes and hitting the streets for events ranging from 5Ks to marathons! 

TheGreenOffice is doing our part to make these events as green as possible!  At the 2008 Spirit of St Louis Marathon, we were proud to be a sponsor and to supply the race with nearly 200,000 biodegradable, petrochemical-free cups.  The cups helped ensure that post-race cleanup was simple (since they can be simply thrown away), and were a key part of the effort to make the St. Louis Marathon a green-friendly event!
 Office Greening Tip of the Month

Recharge your Battery Supply

Every year, more than 15 billion disposable batteries are sold worldwide. When these batteries are thrown out, they release harmful heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and nickel into  our soil and water supply.

Fortunately, it's easy to make disposable batteries a thing of the past in your workplace and at home. 
  • Purchase reusable batteriesinstead of disposables.
  • Place battery recharging stations in convenient locations throughout your workplace.
  • Find a recycling center that will accept your existing disposable batteries when they are drained.  Many drugstores and camera shops will accept them.
  • Choose solar-powered electronics such as calculators.
Switching to reusable batteries is easy, and not only will you be helping the planet and your community, but you will save save money too!
