My employer is NOT green, Help!

I'd like to suggest to my employer that they put into effect some, simple, environmentally friendly practices, but when it comes down to it they are primarily concerned about the bottom line. So for this to have any chance at moving forward I need figures (and or real life examples) that will show them the cost saving benefits of being an environmentally moral company...that is where you come in!
The first 2 easiest suggestions I have are encouraging the use of only 1 restroom paper hand towel, and to power down all monitors after leaving for the day (especially weekends), but I'm struggling to find money data, and or case studies, that support these obvious positive and simple green initiatives.
What other easy and data-backed green ideas could we employ?
