Accuraty Solutions
Accuraty's employees already think green -- at least two of their ten employees walk or bike to work. They purchase equipment and office supplies (monitors, etc) that are green-friendly or have recycled content. Accuraty checked GreenSeal for a non-toxic whiteboard paint before painting their walls in the office so they can write notes on the walls, eliminating the need to use paper. They dispose of batteries and old computers & monitors to proper recycling facilities. They don't buy fancy new stuff when old stuff will suit their needs -- their only printer is from 1996, and they still are using the toner from 2003! They use an online fax service to send or receive faxes. They also run all their small electronic devices (mice, keyboards, etc.) from rechargeable batteries!
