Going Green is a popular idea these days. Green has come to represent a way of life that is in step with good stewardship of the earth and its resources.
Consumers are becoming more aware of the importance of recycling, and like to patronize companies that demonstrate the same attitude. It is wise for companies to present a green image to attract customers and enhance customer loyalty.
Paper is in many ways the easiest product to recycle. Employees can easily get into the habit of throwing paper into a recycling bin instead of the trash. To make the habit easier, blue recycling bins can be located next to every wastebasket.
Many nonprofit organizations and schools provide space for paper recycling bins on their property. Recycling companies often donate money to these schools if they give enough paper to be recycled. By being active in this type of program, a company can demonstrate community support and recycle at the same time
Just as crucial as recycling garbage paper is buying recycled office paper. Recycled paper is produced living up to the same standards as other paper, so do not have to give up quality.
Recycling used paper and using recycled paper contributes to reducing the waste volume added to garbage. It also reduces how many trees are cut down in the manufacturing process and reduces toxins from that process as well. In this way, an institution can participate in the full array of recycling activities.
Plastic, aluminum and glass containers can also be collected in the office. Many employees are already in the habit of separating recyclables at home and would like to be able to do so at the office as well. A good way to start is to place collection bins in the break room.
By instituting these easy steps, an organization can reap benefits of an positive corporate image and more customer loyalty which means more profits for the company.
