How Green Is Your Office?

Friday, 23 August 2013
Mine? Not at all in colour but I try to be as eco friendly as I can with the things in it. Whether you have your own office, an office at home or work in an office, chances are you've thought about being a little more environmentally friendly. With more and more businesses looking to reduce their footprint on the earth with kinder to the environment alternatives from printer ink and paper to reclaimed wood office furniture it's big business to be kinder and one of the companies helping you get a head start on making a bit of a difference are The Green Office who specialise in sustainable office supplies.

With my little home office I don't tend to have a need for the furniture the company sells but I do have a need for the ink, paper, labels (God, how I love labels) and even things like their technology (I need a laminator. I would laminate everything all the time). The best thing is to make up or the delivery of these supplies in vans, for every delivery over £49.99 the company will plant a tree. Simple things but such a great idea for an environmentally friendly company that many of its competitors don't offer.

Me? I'm trying to be more eco-friendly. I recycle, I try not to waste and I re-purpose items or buy second hand where I can but in the office I am so accustomed to picking up a random pack of paper or stationary items without even giving it a second thought and I definitely feel like I should be more conscientious about the things I buy and what I do with it. With the internet right here I can find what I'm looking for with minimal effort and little expense so I really should utilise it a bit more. I think I'll start with buying a laminator and this dry erase board because as some of you may have seen on Instagram, the command central cork board is getting a little messy these days.

Are you eco-friendly? Care to share some of your tips?
