The latest issue of the Commission Junctions newsletter for affiliates had an interesting bit in there from Kerri Pollard, General Manager of CJ, about going green in our business lives.
This is something that has been on my mind lately, since myself and so many affiliate marketers work from home and have control over their work spaces.
So to varying degrees, we can determine the impact we have on the environment.
Some suggestions from Kerri…
One thing that publishers can do is support and promote businesses with a commitment to the environment. Taking a quick search through the “Get Links” section of the CJ Account Manager (start with keyword “environment”) will yield some great examples of these businesses. But that’s just one way to help out.
There’s a good chance that many of you run home-based businesses, so obviously not commuting helps the environment in many ways. I’m sure most of you take this one step further by shopping online instead of driving and possibly by conducting your business meetings online or on the phone.
Good points, Kerri. My way of doing business automatically helps the environment, but I could certainly do more – perhaps starting with not keeping my computers, printer, copier, fax machine, power backup, monitors, external hard drives, etc. on 24/7.
Gotta run… or rather walk… to the bank and post office now.
