5 Easy Ways To Make Your Home Office Green

Created in partnership with Office Depot® OfficeMax®

When operating a business out of your own home, making your operation as environmentally conscious as possible may not be high on your priority list. However, maintaining a greener home office isn’t just good for the environment, it can also be good for your bank account. Here are a few different items that may save you a few bucks while also reducing your ecological footprint.

 

Printer

If you set up your home office more than a few years ago, it’s likely filled with a number of now redundant electronic devices. This reasonably priced HP Envy 5000 All-In-One Printer, Copier, Scanner will help make your energy bill lower by replacing your outdated machines with a single new device that meets the EPA’s Energy Star standards.

 

Ink Cartridges

When it becomes necessary for you to purchase new printer ink, Office Depot® Brand OD61XLK61C (HP 61XL/61) Remanufactured Black/Tricolor Ink Cartridges are highly recommended. They are a greener choice because they require less energy to produce and help prevent waste in landfills by reusing the original manufacturer’s plastic cartridge in the remanufacturing process.

 

Paper

Office Depot’s EnviroCopy 30 Paper has a 20 pound paperweight, is acid-free and has a brightness of 92, which makes it ideal for use in any home office. It also meets the Forest Stewardship Council’s standard for responsible use of forest resources and is made with 30% post-consumer recycled content. If you’d like to go even greener, there are 100% recycled options available as well.

 

Pens

The Pilot® “Bottle to Pen” B2P 89% Recycled Gel Retractable Pens have received a number of five-star reviews from satisfied customers because of their comfortable gel grips, smooth handling, fast drying ink and the fact that they are made with 89% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.

 

Scissors

The Westcott Ruler KleenEarth® Soft-Handle Scissors were designed with soft-grip handles are made from 70% recycled content and that make completing even the most time-intensive cutting jobs comfortable. The stainless steel blades are durable enough to last a good long while.

 

Tape

Scotch’s 55% Recycled Magic Greener Tape In Dispensers has the same great value, premium matte finish and on-paper invisibility that regular magic tape has, only with the added benefit of being made with 65 percent total recycled content.
