Spring into Action – Green Your Office Equipment

Looking for a straightforward  approach to greening your organization’s office equipment?  The State Electronics Challenge — a free program may — be for you. 

The Challenge helps public agencies, schools, colleges and universities to improve the environmental footprint of their operations and meet sustainability goals by buying green office equipment, using it efficiently and recycling it responsibly.  Organizations that sign on to the program—known as Partners—get access to free implementation tools, and support and technical assistance.  The Challenge also generates sustainability reports for each Partner that document the impacts of the program on specific indicators – material and energy conservation, greenhouse gas avoidance and solid and hazardous waste reduction.
