Polluted indoor air can also reduce productivity for a business. Normally, indoor air pollution occurs due to chemical emissions caused from furniture, floor cleaning products and carpet cleaning products or other cleaning products. The use of non-toxic cleaning products should be avoided as they have harmful chemicals that can harm building occupants or the environment. So, Go Green by using eco-friendly cleaners and replenish oxygen in the room by adding plants to the room. Use some shade loving plants like philodendrons and ivies that grow in shade or near open windows or doors.

Green way to reduce the waste includes usage of reusable glass and coffee mugs, dishes, plates and silverware; eating homemade lunch at workplace etc. With such green techniques you reduce packing waste and bottled water waste that can cause the environment pollution. At workplace or home reduce the paper use as it can also increase the waste.
