Going Green: The Power of the Individual
Neugebauer, Adam
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n185 p62-63 Jan-Feb 2009
In this article, the author describes wasteful office practices he encountered at work such as minimal recycling efforts, computer equipment being left on at night, kitchens were stocked with disposable items, and others. What really bothered him was that no matter how passionate he was about trying to reduce his own "footprint" at work, it wasn't going to make much of a difference: (1) he is not one of the decision makers at work; (2) he doesn't write employee policies or control company purchasing practices; and (3) it's not his responsibility to look over everyone's shoulders to make sure they put their recyclables in the proper bin. So what good could he really do? He found out that some of his coworkers were dealing with the exact same frustrations. He relates how they brainstormed some possible solutions.
