Implementing Best Sustainability Practices for the Office

While the philosophy of “going green” may sound easy with the simple mantra of “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle,” it usually requires a lot more detail and discipline when it comes to a busy office and business environment. If you’re an office manager or small business owner, you know all too well how difficult it is to implement change and get your staff onboard with new procedures and processes, even if the new changes benefit the business (and the environment!) as a whole.

 

At Superior Document Solutions, not only do we specialize in all facets of office productivity, such as document solutions, print management, and IT managementfor businesses of all different sizes in and around the Atlantaarea, but we can also work with you to establish and implement sustainabilityoptions that not only help you to comply with best practices when “going green,” but plans and processes that will help you to streamline what you do while saving time and money in the process.

 

Because ink, paper, and toner generally tend to take up the largest portion of your office supply expenses, reducing the amount that you use by assessing your documentand print workflowsmakes great sense. We can even show you what going paperless might look like, in some instances, in order to increase productivity while also increasing your financial savings. In addition, going paperless can sometimes result in the elimination of obsolete or underperforming equipment that you were either paying for unnecessarily or resulted in slow and less than excellent results.

 

Reuse frequently used items to cut down on the need for additional resources and supplies. Consider reusing the unused sides of printed materials for draft copies and other inter-office correspondence, flyers, signage, scrap note paper, etc. instead of just tossing it out immediately after printing, for example. For inter-office use, envelopes, folders, and files can also be used countless times before wearing out and needing to be replaced. The same can be said about refillable ink cartridges and their benefit to not only your sustainability efforts, but your bottom line, too.
