Simple steps toward a greener office, such as developing an easy-to-follow workplace recycling program, can help you feel happier – and more productive – at work.

There’s no mistake about it: recycling in the workplace benefits both the environment and company. When you start your office recycling program, take a moment to observe these and other useful effects – and share them with other firms who haven’t yet gone green.
