An Approach to Being Green Using Sapling’s Wireless Clock System

Political and economic business strategies today are centered heavily around a growing social concern for the environment. Most experts agree that relying less on fossil fuels for energy and developing new ways to either eliminate or significantly reduce the harmful burning of such fuels will, by far, be the easiest way to help sustain a healthy environment for the future. Many businesses are now choosing to incorporate “green”, energy and resource saving technology into their day-to-day business operations in order to address this growing anxiety and cut costs. In order to help firms cut energy use and lessen the burden put on natural resources where possible, Sapling offers wirelessly synchronized clocks that eliminate wiring, constant energy use and even short and long-term expenses.

Sapling wireless clock systems require nothing but the master clock to be plugged in. All subsequent slave clocks dispersed throughout a building or across a campus only need 2 D-cell batteries for power. D-cell batteries will power Sapling Analog Wireless Clocks for approximately five years in standard mode and extended up to eight years in economy mode. They are much more affordable than their lithium counterparts and can save institutions thousands of dollars on wiring and long term electric expenses. By eliminating the waste of resources from wasting electricity running a clock system, organizations and society alike can benefit from an environmentally conscious wireless clock system like Sapling’s.

“Green” Things to Remember When Using Sapling Wireless Clocks:

  1. Consider using economy mode instead of standard mode for your time telling needs wherever possible. Your clocks will synchronize every four hours instead of two, effectively extending battery life and reducing unnecessary waste.
  2. The cost of replacing a clock’s drained batteries will likely be less than the cost to power a wired clock over a five to eight year period.
  3. Dispose of batteries appropriately. Doing so prevents harmful chemicals from damaging the environment. Find your local battery recycling collection center to ensure the proper recycling of batteries.
