We’ve already written about ways to Greenify your office by using recycled paper, so the only thing I will reiterate there is that the cumulative effects of 100% recycled paper is staggering. A pallet of 100% recycled paper (40 cases) will save 24 trees, 7, 000 gallons of water, and 60 pounds of greenhouse gases.
Copier/printer paper is obvious, but did you know that you can purchase letterhead, envelopes, notebooks, self-stick note pads, pocket-folders and business cards made from recycled content as well?
Your office binders do not need to be made from vinyl. Rebinder Recycled Binders are made from corrugated cardboard and just as durable as vinyl covers. You can even get replacement covers should you need one!
If your office uses AA, AAA, B, C or D batteries, consider investing in rechargeable batteries and a solar charger.
Is there a dry erase/white board in your office? Artline makes a line of ECO-Green dry erase markers which are made from recycled materials and have a lower dose of that dry erase marker smell.
The office pens do not need to be left out of the campaign to Greenify! There are ballpoint pens available made from recycled CD cases, recycled plastic and recycled wood, not to mention that biodegradable pens are available!
If you ordinarily run out to the store for your office supplies, you may discover that you easiest way to order your green supplies is online. But with a little research and ingenuity, you can easily Greenify your entire office without spending much, if any more, than you ordinarily do.
