Spring Clean and Be Green
Everyone loves to have a good clear out in the spring in time for summer. Don’t worry if you haven’t started, there’s still time to don those marigolds and get rid of that clutter around the house.
But don’t just let that stop with your home. I’m sure your office’s and workplaces are filled with junk that’s accumulated over the past year.
Now more than ever there’s no better time to get into that stationary cupboard and ditch the old expired markers, pens tipex and anything else that’s unusable.
But when you think of a spring clean of this magnitude, why not make the conscious decision to go green this year.
Take a step back and have a look at your corporate social responsibility.
According to www.recylcenow.com, choosing products made from recycled paper instead of harvesting new paper has four main benefits:
• Reduces energy consumption
• Reduces rainforest deforestation
• Reduces the volume of paper waste sent to landfills
• Reduces the emission of gasses such as methane from entering the atmosphere
The Recycling Guide website also has some interesting facts on paper recycling and states that, “recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution than if it was made from raw materials.” When you think about the damage to the environment that manufacturing and disposing of paper can have then you might want to make greener choices when it comes to your stationery.
At Global Office Supplies, we have a range of recycled and carbon offset products that can get you started on that mission to be green in the office.
