YCS Goes Green
  Green Tips of the Week
June 15, 2010

  Be Green at Work!  This idea was submitted by a YCS Employee:  

“I reuse paper that could be discarded by cutting it up and using the pieces instead of post-it notes.”

  The average office worker generates between 120 - 150 pounds of recoverable white office paper a year.

  The YCS Green Initiative
The YCS Go Green Committee chaired by Mr. Hing-Shung Chan, VP of IT, formally started last year. One of the committee’s initiative is a mandatory shut down of all YCS computers,  switching off printers and all other electrical equipment every night and on week ends when such equipment is not being used.  By raw estimate, this initiative if practiced by all, could potentially save $30,000 a year on the electricity bill for the agency.

With such catch phrases as “Do you need to print? Don't just think Green, take action and Go Green...", the committee invites all YCS staff to “Go Green”.  Staff are encouraged to save on paper by printing on both sides, switch off office lights at night, and implementing a recycling program at all YCS sites.

Implementing the above “baby” steps in the Go Green initiative, YCS plays a role in contributing to the global efforts of reducing carbon foot prints we have induced on mother earth.

GREEN FACTS:

Do you know that:

  1. An aluminum can that is thrown away will still be a can 500 years from now.  On the other hand, a  recycled aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for three hours -- or the equivalent of a half a gallon of gasoline.  http://www.recycling-revolution.com/recycling-facts.html


  2. To produce each week's Sunday newspapers, 500,000 trees must be cut down; recycling a single run of the Sunday New York Times would save 75,000 trees. http://www.recycling-revolution.com/recycling-facts.html


  3. Each ton of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. This represents a 64% energy savings, a 58% water savings, and 60 pounds less of air pollution. http://www.recycling-revolution.com/recycling-facts.html


  4. The 17 trees saved (above) can absorb a total of 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year. Burning that same ton of paper would create 1500 pounds of carbon dioxide. http://www.recycling-revolution.com/recycling-facts.html
