Earth Day April 22nd, has inspired us to revive our ‘eco’ blog post in recognition of the earth-friendly benefits of being aapril11blog virtual or online business.

Here’s a few ways we virtual professionals are saving the planet!

Reducing our carbon footprint. No commute here … our average travel time from bed to desk is under 30 seconds and the only fuel required is coffee!

Saving energy. No rows of fluorescent lighting in our offices … just 4 energy-efficient light bulbs and a big old window.

Tree hugging. That’s right. Trees are cheering us for buying less coffee in paper take-out cups as we keep beating a path to the kitchen to refill our mugs.

So the next time feeling guilty about the pleasures of working virtually – you know, like wearing pyjamas all day – think of the more noble aspects and how you are really helping to save the planet!

All fired up? Why not support one of these world-wide causes or your favourite environmental charity.
