Green Living What are some little/big things companies can do to encourage "green" activities in the workplace?

Question by kathy_is_a_nurse: What are some little/big things companies can do to encourage “green” activities in the workplace?
For example, providing filtered water fountains designed for refilling company-provided water bottles (versus buying disposable commercial water bottles) or renovating a “fleet” of used bicycles for employee use. How about ideas on managing a company-wide recycling program to get more people to participate? How about working with local farmers or even sponsoring an employee garden?

Part of this question includes: How do companies make these initiatives work? Do you know any companies that have a real handle on this subject?

BTW, This is research for a series of articles and I’m trying to come up with practical tips for the reader. I’ve posted similar questions in the “Business” and “Green Living” sections but have only got a few answers. Since “Politics” is one of the most active sections, I’m hoping to get more activity. And yes, I am looking in other areas as well… Just want to cover all my bases.

Don’t let me down and thanks for your help
These days, I’m a freelance writer… Hence the article series. One of my clients requested them. And yes, I know some ideas aren’t new… but I’m looking for the ones that are.

Thanks
Mabe… So HOW does your company encourage the “green” way? Can you give some examples?

Thanks
