Ways to Make Your Office More Sustainable
Buy a Refurbished Multifunctional Printer
As we already mentioned, investing in a refurbished MFP is an excellent way to reduce waste while still getting a quality product for your workplace. With a refurbished multifunctional printer, you will probably be preventing a used printer from ending up in a landfill. Also, when people choose to go with used printers, fewer new printers are produced. This saves resources. In addition, used MFPs cost less, and their toner and ink cartridges tend to be easier to find than those of new printers.
Think Before You Print
It may sound like common sense, but pausing to consider whether or not printing is necessary will save a significant amount of paper in the long run. The great thing about MFPs is that they allow you to scan in and email documents, along with print. Consider emailing paperwork to yourself or others rather than printing. Every small action that you take has an impact on the environment, whether positive or negative.
Recycle Your Ink Cartridge
Did you know that American Lazer offers a cartridge recycling program? We give participating customers recycling boxes that they can fill with used toner containers. Customers can then return these to us and we bring the filled boxes to a recycling facility partner. This keeps countless cartridges out of landfills, allowing them to be turned into remanufactured cartridges.
Encouraging employees to take ownership over their actions can quickly and easily make your office a more sustainable place. Some simple ways that people can contribute to making their office more sustainable include encouraging employees to shut down their computers before going home every night and having your building staff turn off unnecessary lights at night. Hanging up signs around the office to encourage this behavior is a great way to start changing employees’ habits for the better.
Start a Green Team
Employee-led initiatives often gain more momentum than those coming from leadership. See if there is interest among your colleagues in beginning a Green Team to spearhead important environmentally friendly initiatives in the office. If your Green Team manages to put in several green practices, your business will quickly become more sustainably focused.
