Greener office supplies ‘can help cut costs’

By on February 13, 2008 in Office Supplies

Businesses across Canada are being urged to buy more environmentally-friendly office supplies to help reduce company costs.

According to a report by the Canadian Press, by saving money on small items – such as office supplies or office equipment – small business owners can organise their finances better.

The Russo Group – a company based in Lafayette – has implemented the policy of buying cheaper, but more environmentally-friendly office supplies and office products in a bid to cut costs.

Instead of buying office supplies for a three-year period, the company’s boss Jack Russo now only buys the office products needed for the upcoming year, cutting down on possible overspending.

Mr Russo told the news provider that he shops around for office products to try and find the best possible price.

"We made a conscious decision years ago to protect market share and to do that by reducing product costs."

Earlier this month, a number of towns along the east coast of the US joined forces to clubbing together to jointly purchase office supplies in a bid to cut costs.

Council officials in Wells, Kennebunk, and Arundel – in the state of Maine – annually spend around $95,000 (£47,500) on office supplies, however this is likely to shrink with the new scheme.
