Save Money And Help The Environment – Why You Should Choose A Green Office Stationery Supplier

August 13, 2014 | Posted by Amy

Could you save money and help the environment by using a green stationery supplier?

How much do you spend on your office stationery supplies and can we help you improve that figure, by cutting it? Red-Inc are an award winning Green stationery supplier.

We ask because customer care is a crucial part of the service here at Red Inc. There probably aren’t that many companies that positively encourage their clients to save money and help the environment. We conduct regular quarterly reviews with our clients so that we can go through how much they are spending, enabling us to make suggestions for savings.

Regular Reviews

We look at errors, we look at the number of products bought and the number of deliveries made. That review means we can introduce new ideas, such as trying to reduce the number of deliveries, or to point you towards recycled products.
Recycled paper, for example, is a great solution for all in-house printing needs, and we have converted many clients to recycled paper for their in-house printing. Making the switch is likely to make your office stationery products ordering much more efficient and cost-effective.

Green Credentials

Many of our office stationery supplies products are 100 percent recycled, part sustainable, or they have other green accreditation’s including:

  • Items with more than 50 percent recycled
  • More than 70 percent recycled
  • Or more than 90 percent recycled
  • 100 percent recycled
  • Fairtrade
  • Biodegradable
  • Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification
  • Nordic Swan
  • Energy Efficient
  • Ethical Tea Partnership

In addition, we supply FSC paper products – FSC stands for the Forest Stewardship Council and it is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit agency set up to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.

Know How Much You Can Save!

Knowing exactly how much those suggestions could save is important for a client’s bottom line and we have a new online calculator that will demonstrate the benefits of using a closed loop and recycled paper scheme too. Please ask us more about this HERE

Closed Loop recycling scheme

Our closed loop recycling scheme is FREE and can be used in conjunction with your office stationery supplies service. We drop off your stationery and collect your waste paper, which can then be recycled. It’s a great way of keeping traffic on the roads to a minimum so it scores on multiple levels when it comes to following environmental policies and minimising your company’s carbon footprint.

Information scientist Frederick Wilfrid Lancaster’s 1978 prediction of a paperless society is yet to be achieved, but work with us and know that you will be part of an office stationery supplies movement which works ethically and responsibly in conjunction with the needs of your company.

We also operate a closed loop toner cartridge recycling scheme. Great for preventing toners going to landfill and polluting the land.
