10 Ways to Create a More Eco-Friendly Office

Creating a more eco-friendly office might not immediately seem like a business-friendly choice, but former U.S. Representative Claudine Schneider feels the two are irrevocably linked: “A healthy ecology is the basis for a healthy economy.” Save the environment and save money at the same time – what could be better than that?

Switch to Bamboo Furniture

While hardwood is beautiful and certainly durable, cutting down trees to create furniture leads to widespread deforestation that affects everything from global greenhouse emissions to soil erosion and our water cycle. Bamboo, on the other hand, reaches maturity in just 3-5 years (hardwood takes ten times as long) and requires less chemical intervention and water along the way, making it the perfect choice for eco-friendly furniture.

Embrace Digital Communication

Approximately 75 percent of the world’s phones are now text-enabled, which makes it even more surprising that so many companies are still relying on old-school communications like paper memos and snail mail. Use texts to notify employees when meetings are scheduled, remind them about the upcoming blood drive, or craft a text-based marketing campaign that’ll reach current or potential customers where they are – on the phone.

Implement a Recycling Program

Establishing a recycling program reinforces your company’s commitment to eco-friendly policies. Not convinced? Consider this: every ton of paper recycled saves 17 mature trees – it really is that simple.

Upgrade the Lunchroom

At some point in time, probably spurred on by sanitation concerns, cafeterias everywhere switched from real cutlery to plastic facsimiles that are as inefficient as they are wasteful. Whether you have a giant lunchroom replete with a hot line and salad bar or a simple break room with mini fridge and microwave, you can cut waste simply by stocking sturdy stainless steel silverware that will be used thousands of times before seeing the inside of a waste bin.

Buy in Bulk

Speaking of the lunchroom… those little individually portioned ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise packets epitomize waste, and paper salt and pepper or sugar packets aren’t any better. Buy condiments and spices in bulk and refill washable pump or shaker containers. Not only will less plastic and foil hit the garbage can, you’ll likely conserve supplies, too – after all, it’s a lot harder to grab a squirt or two of mustard to take home than it is to snag a handful of packets.

Say No to Bottled Water

Despite recycling efforts, an estimated 85 million plastic water bottles are thrown away in the United States every day, all of which end up either in a landfill or an incinerator. Install a drinking fountain or contract with a water cooler and then encourage your employees to bring their own reusable water bottles or mugs.

Let Employees Telecommute

Allowing employees to work from home, even if it’s just a few days per month, greatly reduces the time your staff will spend on the road. In turn, that means less car-based emissions and less wear and tear on roads, shaving off costly and not so environmentally friendly repairs for a little bit longer.

Power Down the Office

Did you know that so long as appliances are plugged in, they continue to use energy even if they’re not actively being used? Institute a policy that requires employees to shut down their workstations at night, and make unplugging energy-gobbling gadgets such as copiers and fax machines a regular part of your staff’s end-of-day routine.

Install Motion Sensors

No matter how committed people are to turning off lights when they leave a room, flipping that on/off switch can be a hard habit to make stick. By installing motion-activated light switches, you’re taking the onus off employees and putting it on the automatic mechanisms that sense when a person enters a bathroom or back office and illuminate the room accordingly – no switch necessary!

Buy Second-hand Appliances

It can be hard to resist the allure of the latest, greatest multipurpose copy machine or accept an office chair covered in fabric that’s a little less than perfect, but buying used office furniture is an environmentally friendly choice that also saves money. Watch the newspaper and industry publications for office sales or buy off the store floor for stock samples that are dinged but definitely still usable.

Stock Non-Toxic Cleaning Products

There are a number of things you can do around the office that can positively impact your health, but the most important chance you can make may well be swapping out toxic cleaners for greener alternatives. To paraphrase one expert, you don’t need weapons of mass disinfection to keep your office clean. Studies have repeatedly disproven the supposedly magical powers of antibacterial soap and products containing chlorine bleach are unnecessarily harsh. Solutions containing hydrogen peroxide or vinegar will kill mold just as easily and without the nasty side effects should you accidently breathe them in or splatter a bit on your skin. DIY cleansers are easy to make with ingredients you likely already have at home, and the peace of mind that results will be well worth the elbow grease.

Noted anthropologist and activist Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Choosing a text message over a paper memo might not overhaul how society approaches conservation overnight, but by doing your part you’re making waves that might affect things for years to come. What changes are you willing to make in order to be a better global citizen?

A Standing Desk Can Help Combat the Obesity Epidemic

                 According to an analysis of global trends in body mass index (BMI), more than 640 million people weigh in as obese. The number of people with BMI of more Obesity Levels Risingthan 30 is at 641 million, rising from 105 million in 1975. More than one in 10 men and one in seven women are obese. Body Mass Index is calculated by dividing a person’s weight by their height squared, and gauges whether a person is at a healthy weight. A BMI over 25 is overweight, over 30 is obese, and over 40 is morbidly obese.

                  A large contributing factor to the obesity epidemic is sitting. Prolonged sitting leads to many chronic diseases including obesity and type 2 diabetes. This is true even for those who exercise regularly. However, standing is an easy way to combat the deadly health risks of sitting. A study published in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings examined the relationships between standing time, obesity, and metabolic syndrome, alongside and independent of exercise. A total of 7,075 healthy adults of both sexes between the ages of 20 and 79 were included and the results revealed that:

  • Men who stood up for ¼ of the time (~6 hours) each day or more had a 32% lower risk of obesity.
  • Men who stood up for roughly ½ the day had a 59% reduced likelihood of obesity.
  • Women who stood for ¼ of the day had a 35% lower risk of obesity.
  • Women who stood for ½ the day had a 57% reduced likelihood of obesity.

                 Other research from the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences, University of Glasgow, has found that those who sit the most have 112% increased relative risk of diabetes, and a 147% increased relative risk of cardiovascular events compared to those who sit the least. All-cause mortality is also increased by 50 percent.

                Currently, there are efforts to stop obesity at young ages by bringing standing Standing Desks in Classroomsdesks into classrooms. A study in the American Journal of Public Health, involving about 80 first-graders in Texas, found that those with standing desks burned 17 percent more calories than those at sitting desks. The effect was even more significant for children who were overweight or obese. They burned 32 percent more calories than the control group. Bringing about a behavior change at a young age will hopefully continue into adulthood and improve a person’s overall quality of health.

                Obesity is a huge threat to the world. If there are simple behavior changes, like standing at work instead of sitting, that can help combat the risks of obesity resulting from sitting. Why wouldn’t everyone want to do it? If you care about your health, you should consider trying a sit-stand work station like the Standee Flex which allows you to move between sitting and standing throughout the day with just the click of a button. Or try out the Standee Classic which converts your existing desk into a standing desk in minutes. These affordable yet effective solutions can quickly transform your life for the better. Join us in the vertical revolution and help us fight obesity globally.

Get a Standing Desk Before It’s Too Late – Don’t Be Like Me

The purpose of this blog is to encourage you to get a standing desk before it’s too late. I wish I could undo the years of sitting that have taken an irreversible toll on my musculoskeletal system. I was a hardcore sitter for over 30 years. As an undergrad and graduate student I was an insecure overachiever. I sat studying for long periods of time as did many of my peers who took their studies seriously. My hard work paid off and I landed a job as a management consultant for a top firm whose competitive advantage was “the 18-hour associate.”


Sitting for 18 hours a day became pretty routine for me. The years of sitting turned into decades, and before I knew it I had become a chronic sitter with more than 30 years of hard core sitting under my belt. During this time I never really gave sitting a second thought, nor did I ever consider that sitting might some day become an occupational hazard of the career I chose. But sitting, as with age, has a way of sneaking up on you. I really thought I was doing everything right. I exercised regularly, ate a healthy diet, and tried to take care of myself.

Hip Flexor Injury from Sitting


I just wish I had known earlier in my life what I know now. About 5 years ago, I developed a hip flexor injury that has become chronic. I thought it was a running injury, but I’m now convinced that my sitting was the primary culprit. When you sit, your hip flexor muscles get short. If you sit for long periods of time, even an hour of exercise isn’t enough to overcome your muscles’ tendency to stay short. I’ve been lucky to not have developed the back problems that often accompany sitting.


For 30 years, I never really felt any symptoms of sitting. It’s like people who have heart disease but are asymptomatic. One day they just have a heart attack with no warning. That’s how it was for me. One day I was sitting, and then I quickly reached a point where I just couldn’t sit anymore.


I’m certain that if I had used a standing desk throughout my career, I wouldn’t be suffering from the musculoskeletal issues I now have. If only I had known.


But now standing desks are commonplace and affordable. You can get a desktop model for under $200 and a sit-stand desk for under $400. Today people have the awareness that sitting is bad for you, and the research, which is widely available, is compelling. As a sitting society what we need to do is to be proactive and think about prevention. You can prevent musculoskeletal problems by adopting a standing workstyle now. Don’t be like me and wait until you have a problem. Take control of your health and get a standing desk today.

Standing Desk Interview with an All-Day Stander

Kyle Standee Classic XL Bamboo Standing Desk

The majority of the employees at Standee (myself included) are currently using the Standee Flex, our new electric height-adjustable standing desk that allows us to switch between standing and sitting throughout the day. However, there are some who use the Standee Classic XL with no stool for sitting. We call these few the “All-Day Standers.” Our accountant, Kyle, is one of the All-Day Standers. I sat down Kyle to learn about his journey switching to a standing desk and what led him to be an All-Day Stander.


When did you start standing? I have been standing for 2 years now.


What made you make the switch? The best answer is my overall health. I was trying to make a change because I had read a few articles about how sitting all day was the same as smoking 2 packs a day. I try to eat right and exercise, so the last thing I need is my desk job giving me heart problems. Turns out there were some other benefits that I was not expecting.
           Previously, I was having problems with my lower back. I thought it was from surfing, yard work, or holding my kids, but it turned out to be from sitting in my chair all day. Shortly after the switch, my back pain went away and has not returned. Additionally, I used to “hit a wall” everyday around 2:30 pm when I was a sitter. I would feel exhausted. Then, by the time I got home, I needed to sit down to relax from my hard day of sitting. It seemed very normal to me at the time.
         I don’t hit that wall any more. In fact, I feel pretty energized all day. When I get home, that last thing I want to do is sit down. Now, I roll in the door ready to play with kids. Lastly, I have read that standing all day all year is about the same a running 11 marathons a year. I’m not sure what that means, exactly, and I would not try to say I have lost weight from standing. However, I would argue that it seems much easier to maintain my weight with less fluctuation.


Did you hear about or consider a standing desk before Standee? Not really. The idea grew organically within our company. It may have been easier for me to switch, though, because I was able to recall what it was like before my corporate life started. Growing up, I had jobs were I would stand all day. Thinking back, it was never a problem before, so why not try it now?


Have you always stood all day since the switch to a standing desk? No. Initially, I tried using a yoga ball instead of a chair. This might be good exercise for some people, but sitting on a yoga ball is not much of a challenge for someone who sits and balances on a surfboard in the water. I tried this for about two weeks, but found that it was not a very good ergonomic set up and actually made my back problems worse.


Has standing had any effects (good or bad) on your work day? I am definitely more productive, specifically in the afternoons.


Any advice for those considering switching to a standing desk? Yes. Get a Standee Mat. You can do without it, but why? You can also run a marathon barefoot…


Do you have any pro tips for people who have recently made the switch? Sure. You might want to keep your chair or yoga ball handy for meetings with vendors. Standing is not yet the status quo in America and some people seem to be struggling with it. They are not sure if they should sit or stand in my office. I find it best to mirror their behavior. If they keep standing, so do I. If they pull out a chair, I sit on my yoga ball to make them more comfortable. Keep this in mind outside the office as well. I stand a lot now. In fact, the only time I sit is at meals and in front of the TV at the end of the night, which gets my body to get ready to go to sleep. It is a pretty fun social experiment. If you are going to a party for the big game this weekend, have some fun and try to stand and watch the whole game. Some people won’t even notice, but others will be very bothered by it.



Standing Desk Hacks for the Standee Classic & XL

Our desktop series is comprised of two models, the Classic and Classic XL. Each comes in four different heights and two different colors of bamboo. They are fixed height desktop add-ons so you choose the right size for you based on your height. They assemble in no time and are designed to be foldable so you can easily store the desk under or on the side of your desk when you want to sit. A common misconception with our desktop models is that you have to disassemble them in order to sit. This is not true. There are a few hacks to make using the Standee Classic & XL very enjoyable.

Standee Classic Bamboo Standing Desk

1. Get a stool. If you get a stool then there is no need to disassemble your Classic. All you need to do is push the stool to the side when you want to stand and then place it back in front of the desk when you want to sit. Easy as that. You can get a nice, height adjustable stool with a footrest for only $35 on Amazon.

2. Put laptop under the desk. If you are a laptop user and you do not feel like getting a stool or disassembling your desk when you want to sit, then simply place the laptop underneath your Standee Classic or XL. As long as you have the space under your desk then this is an easy solution for someone with a regular office chair.

3. Maximize the space under your desk. Many people think that putting one of our desktop units on top of their desk takes up a lot of space. But, it actually increases the surface area of your desk. You are able to use the space on top of the Classic as well as the space underneath it. Maximize it. Put post-its, file holders, or whatever office supplies you need below it, and they will remain hidden from co-workers while remaining easily accessible. This will actually help to reduce the clutter on your work surface.

The Standee Classic and Standee Classic XL are awesome affordable options for people interested in taking a stand at work or at home.

A Standing Desk Can Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

Gym memberships. Dieting. Cooking healthier meals at home. Most of the popular resolutions people make each year center around improving their health. But as we all know, most people don’t keep their New Year’s resolutions. The most common reason for people not following through on their resolutions is the extra time they take to accomplish. However, if you choose a resolution that simply alters something already in your schedule, there is a greater likelihood of following through. For example, if you cook most of your dinners at home and resolve to start eating healthier, you will have an easier time sticking to your resolution than if you were in the habit of eating most of your meals out with little time devoted to food preparation. So, what is a healthy resolution you can make within your current schedule that will not require more time from your day? Buy a standing desk and start standing at work.


Most people spend the majority of their week at the office sitting at their desk. However, this sedentary lifestyle has been proven to contribute to major health problems. An easy way to burn more calories and improve overall health is to buy a stand-up desk and start standing while you work. You already have to be at the office, at your desk, so why not make a change that doesn’t require you to add an hour or two to your long day at work? This simple change will actually create more time in your schedule. This is because when standing you are more focused and alert so you can get more work done in a shorter period of time, freeing up your time to do other things. In addition, standing for just a few hours while you work can be more beneficial than going to the gym after work. How is this possible? Working out after sitting all day does not reverse the negative effects resulting from being sedentary for 8 or 9 hours a day. Researchers at the University of Chester say that if you stand for at least 3 hours a day, then you will burn about 30,000 calories throughout the year. That is equivalent to running 10 marathons! Which sounds more attainable, running 10 marathons or standing for at least 3 hours at work?

 

Affordable Electric Height Adjustable Standing Desk

However, standing at work is not without its challenges. One of the biggest problems for people switching to a standing desk is that they will stand for the first week or two, but they will lower their desk and remain in a seated position for the rest of the year. Just like those people resolving to go to the gym, they start off strong and then fall off the horse. However, if you keep a few things in mind when starting to stand, you will find yourself standing months after you buy your desk.

1. You have to build up stamina. Remember that starting to stand at work is very similar to starting to workout. Many people are sore after standing for the first week and do not wish to do it any longer. However, you have to remember that it gets easier and easier to stand with time. Of course, the first week you go to the gym you will be sore, but as you begin to go more and more the soreness will start to dissipate. The same  goes for standing at work.

2. You do not need to stand all day. Reversing the negative effects of sitting is all about postural rotation—the movement of switching between sitting and standing throughout the day. Most people think that they have to stand all day because they have a new standing desk, but that is a huge misconception. Just a few hours a day will have you feeling healthier, more focused, and more energized.

3. Get an anti-fatigue mat. A good anti-fatigue mat is probably the single greatest factor in creating a successful standing experience. Standing on an anti-fatigue mat like the Standee Mat makes standing for a few hours a day a simple undertaking for most people. Standing on the hard ground can quickly cause foot, leg, and back pain. Wearing “comfy shoes” isn’t enough.

4. You don’t need to spend a fortune on a new stand up desk. For only $399.95 you can get a Standee Flex, an electric height-adjustable desk that will help facilitate your postural rotation. The Standee Flex is the most affordable desk of its kind on the market so the cost of standing at work has suddenly become very reasonable for most people.

Most of you reading this will have already made a healthy resolution for 2016. How are you doing three or four weeks in? Did you start strong and now find yourself not having time to keep up? It’s not too late to change to a resolution that will give you more time, more energy, and more health benefits than other more time-demanding resolutions. And if you haven’t made one yet, this is the perfect time. Let’s make 2016 a healthy year with an achievable resolution that you can see through to 2017.

Apple Watch Lets You Know It's Time to Stand

The Apple Watch, one of Apple’s most recent products, has numerous functions from calling to texting to directions. One cool new feature it has is the health and fitness Activity App, which measures all the ways you move. Not only does it track all your movements, but it also encourages you to keep moving with notifications. The interface of the Activity App is set up in rings, with the goal being to complete each of the 3 rings (Move, Exercise, and Stand) each day.

Photo from Apple.com

The Stand ring wants to put distance between you and the chair. To do this it shows how often you stand up to take a break from sitting. To help minimize sitting time, the watch senses when you move and gives you credit for doing so. If you sit for almost an hour, it reminds you to get up. In order to complete the Stand ring you must stand up and move for a little at least one minute in each of the 12 hours during the day.

Photo from Apple.com

If you do not have an Apple Watch don’t fret! Red Davis and Hector Simpson, fans of the Apple Watch’s reminder to stand up every hour, created “Stand,” a new app for Mac. This new app has the same goal as the Apple Watch Activity App: to get you to stand up every hour.

Photo from Businessinsider.com

The “Stand” app has a simple, user-friendly interface. You choose the time in the hour that you want to be notified to stand and the app appears at that time with the notification “Time to stand up!” It is a pretty basic app, but the benefits of using it are huge if it accomplishes its goal of getting you to move around every hour.

Although we think both of these are great accessories, it is very difficult to meet your standing goals if you work at a desk job and don’t have a standing desk. Many people are concerned about the cost of a standing desk, but there are some beautiful, very affordable models at www.standeeco.com. We are adding a super affordable electronic sit-stand desk to our product lineup in the next couple of weeks, which will make these new Activity Apps even more useful.

Great Video Spreading Awareness of the Dangers of Sitting—Part II

In our last blog we introduced you to a great video explaining the dangers of sitting. In today’s blog we’ll tell you about a second video that we also think is well worth your time.

Video 2: Are You Sitting Too Much?

Video Time: 3:02 min.

Views: 2,456,717

 

The popular Youtube channel AsapSCIENCE created this viral video using whiteboard marker animation. The video is more concise than the video we mentioned in our last blog but contains an equal amount of useful information. Here are a few of the key points from the video:

  • As soon as you sit down the electrical activity in your muscles drops significantly and your calorie-burning rate plummets to about 1 calorie per minute.
  • After only 3 hours of sitting, there is a 50% drop in artery dilation and a resultant decrease in blood flow.
  • Sit for 24 hours straight, and the insulin in your body loses nearly 40% of its ability to uptake glucose, which increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes.
  • After 2 weeks of sitting for more than 6 hours a day, LDL cholesterol, sometimes called the “bad” cholesterol, is increased, along with other fatty molecules, putting you at a greater risk for weight gain.
  • Because of prolonged inactivity, your muscles begin to break down. Gradually, their contractions become weaker, ultimately impeding the pumping of blood to the heart.
  • Even if you work out regularly, the minute you stop moving the deterioration begins again, in proportion to your sitting time.
  • That’s the scary part; research shows that just as exercise doesn’t necessarily counteract the negative effects of something like smoking, it doesn’t counteract the negative effects of too much sitting.
  • Some studies in women have even shown a decrease in bone mass upwards of 1% every year.
  • Perhaps most shocking is that after 10-20 years of sitting for 6 hours a day, you may have lost up to 7 quality-adjusted life years—that is, years without medical issues or death.
  • The risk of dying from heart disease increases by 64% while the risk of prostate or breast cancer increases by 30% (based on above stat).
  • Simply put, our bodies aren’t designed to be sedentary.

I urge you to take a moment to watch these videos to be informed on the detrimental effects sitting imposes on your body. If you are moved by the information, share these videos with friends and most importantly start moving! If a standing desk is the solution for you or if you want to learn more about standing desks as a solution, visit our store and check out some of the affordable natural add-on podiums like the Standee Classic and Standee Classic XL.
