Green is a popular color these days. It has come to represent a way of doing things that is consistent 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 possibly the easiest product to recycle. Employees can easily develop the habit of tossing paper into a recycling bin instead of the trash. To facilitate this, blue recycling bins can be placed 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
Purchasing recycled office paper is just as important as recycling used paper. There is no sacrifice of quality because recycled paper is manufactured to the same standards as other paper.
Using recycled paper and recycling used paper helps to reduce the waste volume added to landfills, and also the toxins created and trees cut down in the manufacturing process. In this way, a company can participate in the full spectrum of recycling.
Plastic, aluminum and glass jars and cans should also be collected in the office. Many of the people in your office may already be in the habit of separating recyclable items at home. They might like to be able to recycle at the office as well. A good way to get started is to place collection bins in the lunch 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.
