ABSTRACT
The article deals with the efforts of businesses to go green to encourage better health and save money. Converting to a paperless office takes time and technology to replace that processes that used to require documentation. In making this change, the staff may be able to turn a room into a lounge. It is noted that sending invoices by e-mail saves time and leads to a quicker turnaround in payment of account. Jan Dacri also suggests using better lighting that will improve energy throughout the day.
