Green your office in Green Office Week

By staff writers
2 Mar 2009

Companies are being urged to green their offices this week, as Green Office Week gets underway.

Green Office week runs from 2-6 March.

It comes as people are increasingly aware of the need to reduce, reuse and recycle waste materials in the home, but far fewer have the same attitude to office waste.

But now there’s a direct financial incentive for companies to ‘go green’, as well as the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re doing your part for the environment too, campaigners say.

Avery, a company that produce environmentally friendly office equipment and stationery, are behind the first ever Green Office Week. Running from 2-6 March, it is an opportunity to raise awareness of the need for eco-friendliness in the office, not just the home.

The Ethical Superstore is amongst those who stock a range of Avery products that are made from recycled materials. They are a great way to get started on greening your office and raising awareness about the campaign.

Ideas include:

Magazine Rack

Keep all you magazines, files and loose sheets together in the Avery Magazine Rack, de-cluttering your desk and de-stressing your life at the same time. Comes in large or small sizes.

Letter Trays

These letter trays are deceptively simple looking, as they can be stacked with or without the risers, straight, staggered, reversed or at 90º. Made from recycled plastic they will boost your office's green credentials.

Removable Labels

Removable labels are eco-friendly, FSC certified, and, as the name suggests, very easy to remove! They are great for making temporary notes or labels, and they don’t even leave a residue.
