Green for less: Make your workplace eco-friendly

Rainn Wilson, who plays The Office's notoriously anti-environment watchdog Dwight Schrute, once said in an interview, "Dundler Mifflin is not about green. We're about producing and selling paper. We want people to not recycle. Dundler Mifflin wants people to use as many paper products as possible. So stop recycling immediately! And buy more paper!"

While you probably won't meet someone so vehemently anti-green in your work experience, you'll most likely meet with a lot of apathy. Who wants to recycle when it looks like the cleaning lady just throws the bottles and papers out with the trash anyway? And why take the time to wash out your mug when there's a stack of nice Styrofoam cups so readily placed by the coffee machine?
