Businesses should use more environmentally-friendly office supplies if they aim to cut down on waste, an expert has suggested.
In a guide aimed at changing views on green office products, Renee Thomas, director of field marketing at Esker, claims that the US uses eight million tons of office Paper – 3.2 billion reams – each year.
Ms Thomas – who works for the business organisation company – stated that the average US office worker prints 10,000 total pages per year, which is more than a tree’s worth.
Writing for TMCnet.com, Ms Thomas suggested that companies should be stricter with their use of office supplies.
"The best advice for reducing the use of Paper within an organisation is to avoid printing documents unless absolutely necessary.
"From a strategic point of view, those managing production environments should inspire several key changes in the way they run their departments."
