Day 349 of our Green Year: Adding Green Tips To Email Signatures

Today, we have an easy and short green tip. Each day, Layla and I send out at least a dozen e-mails to clients, friends and family. Since we send out those e-mails, we thought that it would be a great idea to add something to those e-mails that helps other people go green. I had seen this before on e-mails sent to me and read about it on Green As A Thistle as well.

So, from now on we will add a tag line to our e-mail signature that will urge people to go green and offer them a green tip as well. Something like "Do you need to print this e-mail? Save paper if you can!" or "Remember to put your computer in standby when not using it!"

Those little tips might be just enough to get someone to think a little bit greener in their day-to-day lives.

Also, a bit of good news. Layla and I currently have one of our companies on a green web host server, which uses green energy and carbon offsets so that the servers don't contribute to greenhouse gases (a very serious problem). Well one of our subsidiary companies is now listed on that same green webhost, as are two of my parent's company websites. All were switched over from a web host company that did not use green options.
