World Earth Day 2007...

One of the messages of World Earth Day 2007 on 22nd April is to think globally…act locally. And where better to start than in your own home office.

So I challenge all writers to become more environmentally friendly…


By recycling, reducing, and re-using everyday items around your home office.

Here are few ideas:

- Buy recycled stationery
- Reuse envelopes
- Reuse scrap paper for notes and draft prints
- Avoid printing documents that could just as easily be emailed
- print and copy double-sided
- Refill your printer ink and toner cartridges
- dot matrix and impact printers use 80% to 90% less energy than laser
- recycle old computers and mobile phones
- when buying a new computer, consider laptop instead of desktop. Laptops can use up to 70% less electricity
- Switch off computer monitors - screen savers burn up the energy
-Use rechargeable batteries
- Reprogram the thermostat to one degree warmer in summertime and one degree cooler in wintertime to save 6 - 8 % in energy costs.

Want to add to the list ???
