Going Green

Here at Everything Office we take looking after the environment very seriously, our purpose built eco office is an example of how serious we are. Click here to see what we have achieved

To help you to become greener we have introduced a range of over 3000 specially selected products that have an environmental benefit. These products range from 100% recycled paper through to Ecover Washing up liquid. For a full list of environmentally beneficial products please contact your account manager today.

When considering the environment always try to remember the 3 R's…. Recycle, Reuse, Reduce. To make the recycle part easier why don't you try our toner recycling scheme? It couldn't be simpler, we will supply you with a recycling bin free of charge. When it is full all you need to do is call the number on the side of the bin and your used toners will be collected and recycled.

The staff here at Everything Office have put together a top 10 list of tips you could adopt to help you become more environmentally aware….

  1. Why not walk to work once a week, it will help you to cut your carbon emissions and make you a happier and healthier person.
  2. Recycle Bins: Create designated holding "bins" for each type of recycled product and place in convenient locations in your home/garage/office.
  3. Change to energy saving light bulbs. They are a little bit dearer, but each one can pay for itself within six months and lasts up to 12 years.
  4. Turn your TV (and mobile phone charger, computer, radio...) off standby when you've finished with them. Ask yourself: is the 'convenience' of leaving the hall light on or the TV on standby worth the, on average, £37 per year you could save if you didn't? We'll leave the maths to you.
  5. Insulate your home for a warmer, cheaper and greener winter. Double glaze windows.
  6. 'Grow Your Own', with all that money you're saving you could even think about getting a solar panel. Why not generate your own energy? Solar power is already a viable alternative in temperate Britain.
  7. Buying locally produced food cuts down the plane and truck emissions made to get it to your plate.
  8. Recycle paper, bottles, cans and more through your local authority or nearest recycling bank. Reuse carrier bags and envelopes, donate things you don't need to charity shops and reduce the amount of refuse you send off to landfill sites by not buying needlessly or heavily packaged goods and produce.
  9. When you're cooking always use a lid on your pan - it dramatically cuts the energy used.
  10. Always put a full load in your washing machine - small loads waste large amounts of energy.
