Look for the EcoLogo on paper and other office supplies. All purchases should be made with environmental considerations in mind.

  • Double-up! Produce double-sided documents and photocopies.
  • Reduce paper usage by using electronic mail.
  • Collect paper that has previously been used on one side and re-use it for fax messages, draft documents and notepads.
  • Pass items you no longer need on to co-workers who can make use of them.
  • Save and re-use binders, file folders, envelopes, paper clips, elastics, etc.
  • Use your own re-usable coffee cup, rather than a disposable cup.
