Reduce Waste at Work

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.
