CLEAN HEALTH: Go Fish!


If you suffer from dry eyes, up your seafood intake. 

Salmon, sardines, and mackerel contain omega-3 fatty acids, which the body uses to produce tears, among other things. Research suggests that people who consume higher amounts of these fats are less likely to have dry eyes.

CLEAN EARTH: Collective Action!


One of the major obstacles to recycling is the cost-effectiveness of collecting it. 

By collaborating with other companies you can expand the potential for commercially attractive alternatives to landfills. Combine with neighboring businesses to collect quantities sufficient to interest a recycling service.
Also seek out arrangements with other businesses that can use the products left over by your operations. Contact the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for a list of international, national, and state-by-state materials exchange organizations at www.epa.gov/jtr/comm/exchange.htm

CLEAN EARTH: Lighting!


In many offices the lights burn long after employees have left the building. 

It might make for a pretty skyline, but combined with all those machines left on standby, it can double your energy bill. Lighting accounts for more than 20 percent of greenhouse gas emissions from commercial buildings.

That figure could be reduced by as much as 70 percent through simple measures. By eliminating inefficient and unnecessary lighting you’ll also reduce heat, reducing the cost of air conditioning. Ask your building manager to turn lights off at night or to install motion activated sensors. Take the initiative by placing reminders near light switches in the area where you work. And if you’re the last one out flick the switch.
