5 Tips to Save Money--And the Earth

You just can’t get that memo right, can you? You print out the first draft and find a misspelling. You print out the second draft and discover you missed some commas. You print out the third draft and later decide on a new title. Now the final draft is ready for printing. Before you throw away those unused sheets of paper, consider how much you could be costing your company and the environment.

You probably know that by recycling, you can save landfill space. But did you know that recycling can also produce a profit for your company? Follow these recycling tips, and your workplace will be ready to save the world.

Create a recycling program. Almost all types of office paper are recyclable. So are most plastics, aluminum, and cardboard. If your office doesn’t already have a recycling program, contact your local recycling company to see how to start one.

Use recycled products. If you recycle but don’t buy recycled products, you’re defeating the purpose, in a sense, by discouraging manufacturers of recycled products.

*Save your paper. Find paperless ways to communicate, such as by e-mail. Also, save used paper for scrap, make double-sided copies, and only print pages you actually need. By cutting back on paper consumption, your office will save money and natural resources.

* Recycle office supplies. Did you know that computers can be recycled, as well as cell phones, PDAs, pagers, chargers, and rechargeable batteries? Many local recycling companies and retailers, including Staples, offer easy ways to recycle your equipment.

Empty inkjet and toner cartridges should be recycled. The fewer drafts you print, the more money you’ll save on cartridge replacements. But when that inkjet or toner cartridge is empty, recycle it through mail-back programs or local retailers like Staples.

In fact, Staples offers a Recycle for Education program that gives $1 to local education charities for every empty inkjet or toner cartridge you recycle in their stores.
