Create An Environmentally Friendly Office By Saving Paper
Are you looking to cut down on the amount of paper your office uses? Here are some of the ways you can save paper and create an environmentally friendly office.
Track the number of pages being printed by each person. Everyone will be able to see exactly how much paper they are using. This will encourage everyone to try and lower their own number.
Make it less convenient to print. Why not try reducing the amount of printers in your office or place them at an inconvenient location. If you and your colleagues will have to make a journey to print you will be less likely to do so unless necessary.
Initiate a recycling policy in your office. Everyone will be more actively involved in environmental initiatives and begin to use less paper, as a result.
Most of all be realistic. You will always need to use some paper in your office. But it is easier to become much more eco friendly and cut back on unnecessary use.
If you find that you are using an excess amount of paper in your office it might be worth looking for an alternative place to write your notes.
What do you do? Why not install functional surfaces into your office?
With products like Smart Whiteboard Paint, our dry erase paint, you can create writable surfaces in any shape or size you want.
You can use your writable surfaces for brainstorming, project management, a monthly calendar. There’s no limit to what you can do. With Smart Whiteboard Paint, meetings have never been more productive. Get everyone up from the table and writing on walls.You can even try stand up meetings.
Reduce the paper usage in your office and create a more environmentally friendly office.
Cut Back on Excess Waste
As mentioned above, recycling is a great way to reduce the amount of waste and creating an environmentally friendly office. Introduce recycling bins for your office to use and clearly identify which one is for glass, which one for paper and so on.
This will help to greatly reduce the amount of landfill waste your office is producing.
You can also be more eco friendly by simply reducing the amount of waste your office produces in the first place. For example, rather than supplying disposable paper cups for coffee, make sure everyone has their own reusable one instead.
If you think about how many people in your office drink coffee a day you’ll realize how even this small step can make a big difference. Your office will be more eco friendly in no time.
