With more and more focus on environmental products we thought we would list Red-Inc’s top 5 recycled stationery and green office supplies products.

We must stress that even though some items are better for the environment, we must also make sure we look further down the line into the supply chain and the end of life of a product.

Items that are readily recyclable in standard waste streams, may even be better than those that seem on the surface “friendly” but have more complicated recycling requirements.

  • 1 Steinbeis Evolution 0.4 recycled paper

If you know Red-Inc, you will know how much we love Steinbeis recycled paper. Its credentials really take some beating. Apart from being a closed loop paper in its production it has a whole host of savings for the environment.
