How To Make Your Home Office More Eco-friendly   

Working from home eases the gridlock and brings some balance back into your life. However, a lot of people tend to fall off the eco-friendly wagon when designing the home office. So, why not take a creative step forward to conserve energy and utilize even the smallest space to create an eco-friendly workspace?

You might be wondering how you can be more environmentally conscious as you work from home. Check out the following unique ideas for going green while working from home:

#1  Form The energy-saving habits
Electric power is consumed by many devices when they are switched off but are still plugged in. This can account for as much as 20% of your electricity bill. You could either unplug those devices when they’re not in use or make use of an intelligent power strip.

Many of your electronic devices come with an eco mode. When you don’t need the device to be working at peak capacity, enable this mode to conserve energy. If you’re going to take a break, put your laptop on sleep mode.
#2  Adopt the 5 R’s
While we may not be able to minimize our waste to one bag a year, let’s see how we can adopt the 5 R’s to create an environmentally friendly home office;
Refuse: Say no to products that damage the environment. Refuse to print invoices if you could send them digitally. Every time you think about purchasing something new, give yourself a day to think, “Will I be using this item for a long time? If not, is it worth buying it?”

Reduce: Instead of writing down things on paper, reduce paper usage and type things out on your laptop or phone. Buy items you need in bulk to reduce the number of trips to the grocery store. The fewer items you demand, the less strain on the environment.

Reuse: Instead of using disposable items, carry a mug for your coffee, pack your lunch in a reusable lunch box and reuse papers lying around in the house.

Repurpose: Instead of buying new furniture, you could change things around your home office to give it a unique look. Here are some creative ways to get started. Eliminate the use of single-use plastic bags, make sure you repurpose reusable plastic bags, and never throw that bag away.

RecycleInstead of throwing away things, recycle or donate them. Recycling is not just for garbage, paper, and bottles.

#3 Let there be natural light

Improper lighting can cause eye fatigue and drowsiness, which hinders productivity. The hue of light is also a factor to take into consideration. Warm color temperatures are calming, while cool color temperatures stimulate productivity. Choosing an LED task light that allows you to change color temperature settings gives you the flexibility to select a suitable light for the task at hand.



Other option is to let the natural light in.Good lightning is an essential part of an office. If you are going to spend a lot of time in the space, and the structure of your home allows for it, installing an energy-efficient skylight is a smart option. You’ll infuse the room with natural daylight while cutting down on electricity costs. Just be sure to actually head outdoors at some point in your day, too.
