As I need buy in from upper management, I am positioning it as waste and cost savings, with a fabulous side benefit of being good for the environment. It will take a lot of volunteer effort up front to document the current useage of paper, toner, plastic plates, cups, etc, but once we have a baseline to go by, we are planning doing a grass roots campaign to ask employees to bring own coffee cups, use less paper, etc, and see if the costs of these items goes down, thus use and waste goes down. Thanks for the great list!! I am also in the process of putting together a business case for my company to be more environmentally repsonsible.

By submitting employees' names, who have left the company, reduces your amount of waste removal costs and saves trees. This is only US based. Nice list!
