We have implemented an environmentally responsible delivery approach to help ensure minimal carbon emissions and pollution in our community. Purchases from multiple divisions are consolidated and we have developed a best practice of an order size standard for all locations. This reduces the frequency of small, inefficient orders, thereby decreasing delivery trips and paper waste from boxes and other packaging materials. All orders are completed online, eliminating the need for paper catalogs.
We have implemented an ink and toner recycling program, to be picked up at the same time as the office supply deliveries, reducing the environmental costs of carbon emissions.
Office supplies and other needed facilities products can make up a large amount of a company’s waste. We look first to products that are of a recycled material, responsibly sourced, fully recyclable, and/or certified as EPA compliant. We have fully restricted the purchase of Styrofoam and other harmful products across all offices and continually access needs and the availability of smart alternatives.
