Are you looking to cut down on the amount of paper your office uses? Here are some suggestions for how to go paperless:
1: Track the number of pages being printed by each person. Everyone will be able to see exactly how much paper they are using. This will encourage everyone to try and lower their own number.
2: Make it less convenient to print. Why not try reducing the amount of printers in your office or place them at an inconvenient location. If you and your colleagues will have to make a journey to print you will be less likely to do so unless necessary.
3: Initiate a recycling policy in your office. Getting everyone more actively involved in environmental initiatives may encourage them to begin to use less paper, as a result.
Most of all be realistic. You will always need to use some paper in your office. But it is easier to become much more eco friendly and cut back on unnecessary use.
Cut Back on Excess Waste
As mentioned above, recycling is a great way to reduce the amount of waste in your office. Introduce recycling bins for your office to use and clearly identify which one is for glass, which one for paper and so on.
This will help to greatly reduce the amount of landfill waste your office is producing.
You can also be more eco friendly by simply reducing the amount of waste your office produces in the first place. For example, rather than supplying disposable paper cups for coffee, make sure everyone has their own reusable one instead.
If you think about how many people in your office drink coffee a day you’ll realise how even this small step can make a big difference. Your office will be more eco friendly in no time.
