You don't have to be a superhero to save the planet – implement some simple sound eco-friendly processes and switch to the environmental everyday office products available from London & Counties Office Supplies.

Follow the 3 Rs – Reduce, Recycle, Re-use – in the office and reducing your company's carbon footprint is easy.

Reduce

Fit motion sensors in areas such as washrooms or staff rooms in order to only use electricity the rooms are in use. Replace standard bulbs with energy saving bulbs wherever possible. These use 75 percent less energy than standard light bulbs while delivering the same amount of light.

Review the amount of reports that are printed. Check that all the recipients still need and use the information, find out if they would prefer to work with it electronically.

Assess the sizes of envelopes used in the office and rationalise to standard sizes that are made from 100% recycled paper. This will ensure there is no wastage of obsolescent envelopes, reduce the amount of deliveries for multiple orders and save costs through consolidated ordering.

Recycle

Follow the same rules for recycling as at home, London & Counties Office Supplies has a variety of recycling bins to accommodate all office waste including paper, toner cartridges, plastic cups, cans and bottles.

Use recycled paper for office printing. Choose from the wide range of grades, weights and colours stocked by London & Counties Office Supplies. Look out for the Blue Angel and Nordic Swan accreditations that are the sign of quality environmentally sustainable papers.

Try the unique-earth range of remanufactured printer cartridges and make sure all types of toners cartridges are recycled to avoid them ending up in landfill where it is likely to take up 1000 years to decompose.

Re-use

Take costs out of the office products budget by re-using padded or bubble mailing envelopes, simply reseal using clear tape – biodegradeable of course!

London and Counties Office Supplies has the product ranges and ideas that really make a difference in fighting global warming.
