We All Play a Part
We believe that businesses and organizations, and not just individuals, must take an active role to reduce, reuse and recycle in order to help make our world a better place to live. From business practices to choosing eco-friendly products, we all play a crucial role in preserving our world for future generations.
With this in mind, Office Central has made commitments in the following three categories:
- Providing electronic statements to clients who order online;
- Promoting more multi-pack products to reduce the amount of packing;
- All computers and lights in the office are shut-down at the end of the work day to help reduce the amount of wasted electricity;
- More clients are ordering online as opposed to via fax thus reducing the amount of ink and paper used;
- All cardboard boxes that are received into Office Central's warehouse facilities are reused to pack-up client orders;
- Computer back-up tapes are reused on a weekly basis;
- Waste paper is reused around the office for internal printing/writing purposes by all employees;
- Pallets that are emptied in our warehouse facilities are either given back to the vendor for reuse or provided to a private company;
- Office Central offers a recycling program to all clients who want to return their used toner cartridges.
In addition, Office Central also outlines all of its eco-friendly products in our catalogue by the use of specific icons. Look for this icon () when specifically shopping for sustainable or eco-friendly products. Our online ordering tool has the functionality via an advanced search to only give the user products that are environmentally friendly. With just the click of a mouse you can be on your way to making a difference simply by choosing ‘green’ products.
