A greener workplace has many advantages. But being green, doesn't just mean having LEED certified building. It is the small things you do every day that add up to make a big impact. Office Renew shares some simple tips to keep in mind at the office (or on your way to it) to make it a more world-friendly environment.

So in honor of Earth day (this Saturday, April 22), we’re sharing a few tips for everyone.
