With Earth Day quickly approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to write about making business more eco-friendly.Â I checked the RiverWired blog to get some ideas and foundÂ a postÂ called the Top 10 Tips to Green Your Small BusinessÂ by Susan Seliger.
In her article, Susan discusses the importance not just of making environmentally friendly products but actually walking the green walk and talking the green talk in every aspect of your business.
One of the best tips Susan gives is to ask your employees for green ideas first.Â I think this is probably the most important piece of the puzzle in terms of making your company greener.Â Getting employee buy-in for your green initiatives and living by example are the building blocks of creating an eco-friendly business.Â If your employees support your green efforts and see you setting the tone, they’ll be more motivated to join in.
