Tips for a Greener more Environmentally Friendly Office - Supplies

Protecting the environment has to be part of your everyday life outside your home as well. Whether you work at a factory that may be blatantly polluting the environment or in an office that could cut down its use of paper products, you should examine every element of your working life and make sure it is a safe working environment for you and the planet.

Environmentally Friendly Ideas for your Office Supplies

1. Use paper clips, staples, string or non-toxic glue instead of adhesive tape when possible.

2. Use crayons, china markers (wax pencils) or coloured pencils instead of solvent based markers.

3. Encourage your workplace to use alternative cleaning materials such as the recipes found in this booklet.

4. Implement purchasing policies that consider the environmental record of companies you are buying goods and services from.

5. Use correction tape that covers errors or lifts them off without the use of solvents. When you must use fluid, use the water based type made for photocopiers.

6. Use stick-type glues or basic white glue. Avoid glues and cements that emit the smell of solvents (ie. rubber cement, hobby glue).

7. Use refillable pens and pencils rather than disposable ones.
