Have you "greened" your newsroom?

In honor of earth week, I'm just wondering if amidst all the stories people do about saving the environment if stations are taking any steps to do the same. Are all the lights left on in the edit booths 24 hours a day? Is the entire building left lit up overnight while there are three people in the building? Are the live truck operators starting the generators much too early? Batteries from wireless microphones being recycled? Have the incandescent studio lights been replaced with fluorescents?

And the big one... are managers still printing out memos for everyone on the staff when one posted on the bulletin board will do just fine?

Might make a good feature to show what your station is doing.
