Going ‘green’ in the office isn’t just a trend anymore. It’s a growing policy that’s being implemented into more and more offices nationwide. But going green doesn’t stop at using recycling bins and buying recycled paper. Here are three unique ways your office can become more environmentally friendly by going green:
1. Battery Recycling—Disposable batteries die about 4-5 times a year in a typical office which can amount to over 1,000 batteries filled with heavy contaminating metals thrown away each year. For less than $50 your office can purchase an iRecycling Kit from batteryrecycling.com that helps you safely dispose of your battery usage.
2. Letterhead Recycling— When your business logo changes, there’s no need to throw away the 10 boxes of letterhead and envelopes. One different way of recycling paper is donating old and outdated letterhead to other businesses or clients. This letterhead can be used for printing on the backside and is great for scratch paper.
3. Paperless Filing—We are all getting used to saving files on our computer or network and emailing them to share them with colleagues. Now offices can fax directly from their electronic filing cabinet and even comment and annotate on files right from the web browser. Document Management software like DynaFile enables you to accomplish this and more.
