5 Simple Steps That Will Help Your Office Go Green
Offices produce over 250 millions tonnes of harmful emissions and waste each year in the UK and should, therefore, be a major concern for every employer. Practices should be put in place in every office to help our environment by lowering emissions and waste.
1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Recycling is possibly the most simple, yet effective, way to help your office go green. You can transform your waste into green office supplies and lead the way towards a greener future. You can also purchase items made from recycled materials instead of conventional plastic and non-biodegradable materials. That way you are practising what you preach, and who doesn’t love doing that.
Free Toner Recycling
With over fifty million toner cartridges making their way to landfill each year, it is crucial that you send them for recycling instead, especially if it’s a free service. Global Office Supplies will collect your used toner and ink cartridges free of charge. We will send you a freepost envelope – all you have to do is fill it up with empty cartridges and send it back to us. This will enhance your green office recycling and save them from a thousand years in landfill while showing others how to be green at work.
2. Hire a Mobile Shredding Truck
Having your waste paper recycled is very beneficial, not only for you but also the environment. This paper can be treated and reused and, if everyone was to carry out this procedure, fewer trees would need to be cut down each year. This would be a significant change as up to 7 billion trees are cut down worldwide annually, and far less are planted to take their place.
Not only does this help the environment but shredding your documents also helps reduce the risk of identity theft. An added bonus of shredding your documents is that you are carrying out your duty under the Data Protection Act of ensuring all customer, supplier and staff information is stored and destroyed effectively.
3. Use an Eco-Friendly Print Management Service
We offer an eco-friendly print management service that allows you to print a range of items, from leaflet printing and business cards all the way up to brochure printing and recycled leaflets. You name it, we can print it. So next time you think about hiring a printing service, why not choose us? We can help you save money and reach your aim of going green.
4. Receive a Free Stationery Audit
Purchasing stationery for your office can cost a lot of money, so it is essential that you find the best deals. Our stationery audits can help you source green alternatives and ensure save you around 30% of your total annual spend.
5. Purchase Eco-Friendly Office Supplies
Purchasing office supplies that are eco-friendly is a must when it comes to turning your office green. Use stationery supplies that have been made from recycled materials and send them off for recycling when you’re done with them. You can consistently use eco-friendly products and not worry about how your actions have negative effects on the environment.
