News : Green Tips: Portsmouth Atlantic Insurance

This week's Green Tips come from Jon Merwin of Portsmouth Atlantic Insurance.

1. Use soy-based inks instead of petroleum inks. They cost about the same — if not less — and are much better for the environment. For example, we buy from www.environmentfirstprint

2. Switch over to electronic fax. Standard fax machines are a waste of paper and time. With eFax, the monthly cost to fax is not far off from standard faxing. Faxes are delivered in portable document format (.pdf) via e-mail. Check out

3. Look into bamboo office furniture. Not only is bamboo incredibly renewable, but it looks great as well. Best of all, bamboo is light. We'll never have to hire a moving company to help with an office move again! Check out
