As the sun comes out and the Everest-like snow piles begin to melt, it’s clear that we are at the beginning of another season out on the trail! Spring cleaning is officially upon us, so besides having time to dust off your shelves and spruce up your window displays, it is equally as important to reassess how to cut down on your monthly overhead. And surprise, surprise! Being green can help you accomplish this.
Simple steps to cut down overhead include:
-turning lights off when you leave the room
–power strips when not in use can be turned off
-lowering the thermostat down after work hours
-using compact fluorescent bulbs instead of incandescent
We already have some great ideas for lowering your monthly overhead and simultaneously becoming a more sustainable business archived right here in the GAP SBN blog all available as a resource for your perusal. Also, we at the Trail Town Outreach Corps want to remind you that we are another valuable resource available to help you research sustainable practices, help you write grant applications, or find you the assistance you need to make your sustainable business vision a reality!
Also, please remember that the GAP Sustainable Business Network is a place for you, the forward-thinking local businesses along the trail, to engage in dialogue as a community about how to better your sustainable business practices by sharing new ideas, detailing your own challenges, or reaching out for assistance.
This is your network to build as you see fit so be sure to make the most of it!
