What is the quickest way for a business to go green?  Exchange a sustainable or eco friendly alternative with a process or action you are already doing.     Take for instance planning.   Is your business planning for a low carbon 2012?  When we think of planning we think of long term business strategies; but what about your planners?  The actual pocket-sized planners, desk pads, and poster-sized wall calendars that offices use daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly?    When you consider that sustainable business strategies focus on reducing environmental impact, embracing responsible purchasing, raising employee's eco awareness, and demonstrating the company's broader corporate sustainability plan, it would make sense to explore how to take these high level sustainability concepts and pair them meaningfully in the business.  Purchasing sustainable office supplies for 2012 makes the cut. How so?   Make every day purchases count.  If you have an office, chances are you purchase paper, pens, toner, organizers, day timers, planners, and such; make your purchases work for you and the planet while also raising the eco awareness of your employees.     Dolphin Blue, an official Certified B Corporation is an online retailer of environmentally responsible office supplies.  Not only does Dolphin Blue lead in the sustainability space by providing tangible, every day sustainable products, but also offers eco friendly information for employees to pair sustainability with day to day actions.     Plan for a low carbon 2012.  Purchase sustainable office supplies and raise eco awareness in the office by subscribing to a trusted newsletter: the Wave Maker.  You will receive up-to-date information about green news, product innovation, workplace greening, as well as unique tips and tricks to help your office go green in 2012.  It's an easy first step.  Click here to subscribe and get your business on the path to sustainability.     Learn more about Dolphin Blue.  Connect with Dolphin Blue on TwitterFacebook, and LinkedIn.   Taiga Company is a proud promoter of Dolphin Blue and its products.  We invite you to learn easy ways to green your office in 2012 by receiving Dolphin Blue's free, informative, green newsletter here.
