Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd and Arbor Day falls soon after on April 29th. There are many tips for Going Green in the office to support our planet and reduce our carbon footprints. Check out the blog posted in 2014 regarding Going Green. In this blog post, we discussed the importance of going green for more than just one day a year. We need to focus on topics such as energy use, littering, climate change and plastic waste. As a whole, what can we do for our planet to ensure it stays beautiful and does not collapse amongst our lack care for it?
