Red Sox Go Green, and So Can You

If the manufacturer of your office equipment doesn't offer recycling, donate your old stuff to schools or nonprofits. You'll prevent toxic materials from entering a landfill, you won't have to pay to dispose of the material and you'll be eligible for a tax deduction. If you're in manufacturing, ask your suppliers for recycled materials--they may even be less expensive than new materials.

If you're not already recycling all your paper, bottles and cans, get cracking! You may save money by reducing the amount of trash you need to toss in the landfill. For their part, the Red Sox will add more recycling bins throughout the park and hold a fifth inning recycling stretch.

Want some help? There are plenty of resources out there to help you make your business as green as Fenway's Monster. Friends of the Earth Scotland offers a free online office audit, then provides personalized advice based on your results. The Green Office offers all sorts of environmentally friendly office supplies as well as a free consultation to help you make your business environmentally sustainable. And Energy Star also provides guidance for small business owners on topics including tax incentives, loans and grants that can help you transition to a greener business model.
