Workers ‘increasingly conscious of green office supplies’

By on July 12, 2008 in Office Supplies, Office Workers

Many workers across the world are increasingly conscious of the environment when using office supplies and office products, a new poll has discovered.

According to a study by Smead, 77 per cent of employees said that buying Paper office products made from trees grown and harvested in a sustainable manner was important to them.

Furthermore, 69 per cent stated that they would switch brands of office supplies if they found out about non-green manufacturing processes.

Meanwhile, 26 per cent of those quizzed said that their companies had green guidelines regarding eco-friendly office supplies, while 42 per cent said that they had asked their employers for the same measures.

Sharon Avent, Smead president, said: "We take great care to implement practices and procedures that are right for the environment and right for our customers."

Earlier this month, a study found that many workers across the world are becoming increasingly aware of the environmental aspects of using office machines and office supplies.

According to a survey by office machines manufacturer Xerox, 40 per cent of those polled said that their top pet peeve about colleagues was mindless printing resulting in abandoned pages at the side of office products.
