CLEAN EARTH: What’s true of pens and paper vs office consumables

What’s true of pens and paper is true of other office consumables, with a wide variety of envelopes, sticky notes, ring binders, notebooks, and other general supplies made from recycled and eco-friendlier materials now available. 


Use a desk caddy to save envelopes, rubber bands, and paper clips for reuse, and ask your office manager to establish an exchange spot for other items such as bubble wrap and padded envelopes. Request designs that support reuse, such as envelopes that have resealable flaps and space for multiple addresses, or adhesive-tape holders that are refillable rather than disposable.
