According to Brad Roderick, executive vice president of InkCycle, employers can instill eco-excitement and inspire employees to adopt a greener office experience to get green-commitment. "You have to have 'buy-in' at the top and a long-term strategy. I think this is where a lot of people struggle. You can't have a fad of the week, or a fad of the quarter. The beautiful thing is that those key members, those employees, start coming up with all the solutions," said Roderick. "We're constantly looking at what the next evolution is to be leaders within the industry."
InkCycle's best practices are incorporating energy saving lights, eco-friendly flooring, printing on recycled copier paper, and replacing company vehicles with hybrids. Additionally, the company suggests using recycled ink and toner cartridges.
