Gear Up and Go Green
Businesses are constantly looking for opportunities and ways to do things differently – from the services and products they offer, to how these are being delivered.
A heightened collective consciousness around the importance of social and environmental wellbeing, may mean that one of the areas of change will be that businesses want to improve their sustainability practices, including making considered choices around using products that are environmentally friendly.
The step towards operating more sustainability can mean making small changes gradually – because every bit counts. And making the move to go greener doesn’t have to be a costly exercise.
Warehouse Stationery wants to play its part by taking responsibility for the impact we have on the environment and we are on a journey to steer a path for others to follow. We’ve taken a lifecycle approach to understand our products’ environmental impact and we continue to add to our already wide range of affordable eco-friendly products that can help businesses make environmentally conscious decisions.
Products created using recycled materials, particularly those with a higher percentage of recycled content are far better for the environment. Buying recycled products such as packaging cartons or compostable resealable mail bags reduces impacts and helps to conserve our natural resources.
Another great example is our Wheat Paper range which is made which is made of wheat straw and recycled wood at a ratio of 60 per cent to 40 per cent to create paper. It’s compatible with New Zealand printers and photocopiers and produces a high quality print finish.
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified products ensures the minimisation of products sourced from unsustainable forest practices. Choosing FSC-certification products such as items from our paper bag range, ensures the environmental needs in forest management are balanced to ensure sustainable growth for future generations.
Keep workstations and shared spaces such as kitchens and meeting areas clean with eco-friendly cleaning products which are safer for you, your team and the environment.
