Work green, live green
In England, it’s the first annual Green Office Week, a project speared by office supply company Avery. I don’t know why it’s not Green Office Week in the United States, too, but Avery’s UK site  has some helpful hints if you want to make your workplace a little more eco-friendly.
It’s one thing to be green at home, but most of us spend a lot of time—and probably use more paper and energy—at work. I definitely have some guilt working at a magazine, though we have tried to cut down on our use of paper here at U.S. Catholic by doing more on our computers.
If you work at a religious organization like me, you also may feel that God is calling you to care for creation as you do God’s work. That’s how these Episcopal nuns feel . Read about and be inspired by their efforts to live green—building a new convent, getting rid of their van and signing up for Zip Car, and gardening and eating vegan, all in the middle of New York City.
