Waste Reduction Tips
Double side photocopies. Not only does it save paper, but it also reduces mailing costs and condenses filing spaces.
Buy recycled products. Look for products with recycled content and packaging.
Place old office papers in a box marked "recycle" if you don't have an individual recycling bin for your desk. Transfer those papers to the central recycling bin at the end of the day.
Proof documents on your computer before printing.
Share journals, magazines, newsletters and newspapers rather than having several copies. This will also reduce your subscription costs!
Use coffee mugs instead of Styrofoam or paper cups.
Create "scratch paper" and memo pads from old stationary.
Remove obsolete names of you mailing lists regularly. It will save you the cost of printing and mailing unnecessary publications and letters.
