    Laptop is economical to use because you can bring it anywhere and batteries now can use    8 or more hours.

    Definitely a laptop is more convenient as compared to a desktop.  With a laptop you can do your job from any place without being inconvenienced by power cuts unlike the office bound desktops.

    Reduce your electrical appliance and lighting use, and easy on the water consumption. Don't print when you don't really need them that much and if you're printing commercially, look for a printer that uses green materials and advocates green printing. Overall, though, the best thing you can do is to share the word and to practice what you preach.

    Up to 10% of your energy costs are from office equipment being left on at night.  By turning off printers, fax machines and other equipment during the night, you are saving both energy and money.

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Deana Smith with Melaleuca. My idea comes from personal experience. We went green with all our products and joined Melaleuca this past summer after my youngest son was having asthma symptoms. What we found out was that he was having an allergic reaction to many of the cleaning products. He wasn't even diagnosed as asthmatic; it was just the fact that the stuff we were using prior to Melaleuca had so many toxins in our home. But once we made the switch - ALL his symptoms stopped!

    The other part is that almost all their products are concentrated, which means we are using less plastic which is better for the environment AND saving money!

    If you would like to know more about our Melaleuca business ad how to try it RiSK FREE, please email me and we can talk!

    Laptop is more economical than Desktop.

    Switch to a laptop instead of using a desktop computer and cut three-quarters off your electrical use. Turn off the laptop at the end of the day.

    Green Ideas for Printers:

    ·         Buy and use recycled paper.

    ·         Save paper by printing on both sides of a sheet of paper whenever possible.

    ·         Do not have your printer set to come on whenever your computer or computer network comes on; instead, turn on your printer only when necessary.

    ·         Use software such as GreenPrint or EcoPrint2 to save ink, toner and paper.
