Help stop plastic polluting our seas!...
We all know how bad single-use plastics can be for our planet. Ocean plastic waste is growing at an alarming rate of 22 million kgs each day – that’s eight billion kgs of plastic a year! Straws may have made the media headlines but what about water bottles?
Over one million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and the number will jump another 20% by 2021. Less than one in three bottles are ever recycled. We need to put a stop to this.
Maybe you didn’t know that you can help reduce this simply by changing your choice of pen? Choose our Pilot Begreen B2P Rollerball Pen, the plastic from one water bottle is recycled and produces two retractable recycled pens.
The Bottle to plastic gel is made using PET plastic - the same plastic that goes into drinks bottles. Our smooth-writing gel ink gives a writing experience that glides across the page. The pen is refillable too, saving you money and making it even better for our planet.Shop Now
Reducing the impact of your deliveries
At Global Office Supplies it is our job to provide you with the products and services you need, when you need them. However, it is also our responsibility to ensure we do this in the smartest way possible to reduce carbon emissions. Our delivery network does this through driving less, driving smarter and choosing fuel efficient vehicles.
Our deliveries are made in 100% biodegradable, FSC and PEFC recycled and recyclable bags wherever possible, which can be passed back to a driver on their next delivery, or recycled through our paper recycling service. In cases where a recyclable cardboard box has been used, our drivers will collect them on their next delivery and return to the depot for recycling.
We minimise additional packaging by keeping products in original supplier wrapping where possible. Where multiple items are purchased and supplier wrapping is utilised, we will place both items in this original packaging, eliminating further waste.
Our ‘carbon conscious’ delivery fleet
Our ‘carbon conscious’ delivery fleet consists of the latest ULEZ delivery vans. All of our services are available on a national scale and many can be collected at the same time as delivery of your office supplies, providing you with an accessible platform to increase your recycling rates and eliminating the carbon emissions associated with using multiple external providers.
Your local supplier
Global Office Supplies use a delivery network consisting of 13 strategically placed distribution centres across the UK, enabling us to be your local supplier wherever you are based, whilst keeping carbon emissions to a minimum.
Fewer suppliers, lower carbon emissions
One of the simplest and most effective ways to reduce your environmental impact is to improve the efficiency of your supply chain. As a single source supplier for all business services and supplies we can help you to do just this, providing a service that delivers everything in one delivery and generates just one invoice. Therefore, eliminating the unnecessary carbon emissions and paper waste associated with using multiple suppliers.
