It’s Okay To Use Paper Responsibly: Here’s Why & How

Created in partnership with Office Depot® OfficeMax®

Even though businesses have made a concerted effort to minimize the use of paper, companies still need the printed reports for many aspects of running the business. Fortunately, companies have embraced green initiatives and are doing everything they can to protect and save the planet. Companies are using less paper, printing on both sides of the paper, recycling paper after use and purchasing recycled paper and paper made from responsible sources. All of these methods have had a profound positive impact on our environment.

 

Recycled Paper

 

Office Depot offers their clients paper with 30%, 50% and 100% recycled content. With Office Depot® Brand EnviroCopy® 30 Paper, 8 1/2″ x 11″, Office Depot provides customers an eco-conscious alternative to help cut down on the amount of paper wastes that go into landfills every year. TreeFrog Multipurpose Sugarcane Paper feels just like traditional paper but is made from sugarcane residue left after sugar and sugarcane juice have been extracted from the plant.

 

FSC Certified Paper

 

Office Depot is a key supporter of responsible forestry practices such as those of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certification.  FSC Certification ensures responsible use of forest resources, giving consumers the option to purchase paper that has been sourced in a socially responsible and environmentally conscious manner. Office Depot offers FSC certified paper in both Office Depot® Imageprint® and Domtar Earth Choice® varieties.
