Going Green

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:


Reduce

  • 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;

Reuse

  • 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;

Recycle

  • 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.
