The 3 Rs to a Greener Office!

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle is the name of the game this Wednesday of Green Office Week.

So, it’s time to focus on how you and your colleagues can find ways to cut back on your office waste. Whether it's emails, presentations or charts, we are all sometimes guilty of printing out documents when we don’t need to. And then there are those deliveries that seem to keep coming all day long, with all that excess packaging going to waste, not to mention those unwanted office items that often get thrown away. Sound familiar?

Well, with the help of Green Office Week, it’s time to focus on reducing those printouts and cut down on waste! Simple things, like using both sides of your printing paper by switching your printer to double-sided printing can literally half your paper usage.

And, why not save the packaging that your deliveries arrive in and reuse them for your own send outs with opaque labels to cover up the old addresses? When it comes to the 3 Rs, everything little thing helps, from recycling scrap paper and using it for notes to donating old office equipment and furniture for local charities to use.
