This past Saturday, April 22nd, was Earth Day! We hope you had the chance to enjoy some time in nature. At Advocate Capital, we believe we have a personal and professional responsibility to do our part to take care of our environment.
In 2010, we became a 100% paperless company for all internal operations. And we also eliminated the need to mail paper invoices. By emailing our clients’ invoices we estimate that they save about 15,000 sheets of paper annually, not to mention the printer ink, postage, and labor savings! The decision was also made to turn our internal operations into a paperless system. Not only did this make good financial and business sense but it sparked what is now the Advocate Capital, Inc. Green Initiative.
When we need additional office furniture, we usually opt for used furniture that looks and works just as good as new.
To eliminate unnecessary usage the Advocate Capital team turns off lights when leaving rooms for extended periods of time and many rooms have automatic lights that sense when the room is empty for an extended period of time. We also maximize computer efficiency by setting all of their computers to go to sleep automatically when not in use.
In honor of Earth Day, spend some time outside and think about ways that your office can be environmentally friendly.
