There are many things you can do to reduce waste at work, including:
- Go electronic. Electronic filing, routing, and editing is often faster and can significantly reduce paper use.
- Use both sides of a sheet of paper for printing and copying. Set computer defaults to print on both sides and make double-sided copies whenever possible.
- Use one-sided paper as scratch paper.
- Use reusable dishware in your company's cafeteria and kitchen instead of disposables.
