Top tips on how to green your office!!!

• Wherever possible, request to receive invoices and other records electronically rather than in hard copy.
• Consider scanning invoices and other non-legally essential documents and storing them digitally, rather than filing hard copies away.
• Store essential documents such as bank records, contracts, etc. only for the time required by law. Shred and recycle old documents when you no longer need to store them.

• Reuse filing folders rather than throwing them away. Write folder labels in pencil so they can be erased and reused. If your file folders have permanent labels, just flip the spine and you have a brand-new blank tab to write on.

• Only store the documents which you are really going to need for the future.
• Shred & recycle confidential items, or use a document destruction service that recycles.
• Consider printing on the back of non-confidential paperwork before recycling it.
• File folders that aren't being reused can generally be recycled.

• Look for file folders, file storage boxes, dividers, and other paper-based products containing as much post-consumer recycled content as possible.
