How you can reduce waste in the office and save money

Have you ever sat down and thought of the amount of waste you produce in the office? Corporate offices are known to produce a lot of waste. With good sensitization among you and your fellow workers, your office can reduce the amount of garbage it generates. Here are quick pointers on how you can cut on waste in the office and save money:
  • Reduce paper waste by:
    1. Going paperless by going digital with files and documents to replace paper files and documents such as invoices and receipts.
    2. Only printing when its necessary and set up the printer to print on both sides of the paper.
    3. Taking notes with your favourite note-taking app on your phone/tablet or program on your computer instead of pen and paper.
    4. Consider cloth hand towels in the kitchen and hand dryers in the bathrooms to cut on paper towels
    5. Engaging your suppliers to reduce their packaging on what they deliver into the office.
  • Reduce plastics by:
    1. Using reusable water bottles instead of plastic cups and single use plastic water bottles. Encourage your fellow workers to do the same.
    2. Carrying packed lunch to save on buying lunch that comes in single use plastic plates, spoons and forks.
    3. Cutting down on straws.
    4. Buying refillable ink cartridges
