Telecommuting is Greener Than Recycling

Is telecommuting greener than recycling? I say yes.

For those of you who don't know, I have been telecommuting for the last 7 years and love the flexible lifestyle it affords me.

I have become somewhat of an evangelist for telecommuting and wanted to share an article I recently wrote about why telecommuting is more disruptive than recycling. You should check it out. I go into detail about how telecommuting will change the way we consume while recycling only makes us feel beter about the way we consume.

The environmental benefits of telecommuting are enormous. No need for a car, to pay for gas, to pollute or consume resources related to office infrastructure. I love it and suggest you try it out if you can. If you are environmentally conscious, this is really the best way to work if you work from a computer.

That being said, you have to have the proper tools to stay productive and connected all day. I recently got a new job working at Sqwiggle, a team collaboration app that acts as a cloud based office. I can see and work with my team all day long and we get the camaraderie and presence like we would in an office, but from anywhere. If you are a telecommuter you should check out the app.

I would love any and all thoughts. Thanks for listening.
