Taking Care of Business

Office Depot is quickly climbing the list of the environmental community's favorite corporations. U.S. offices go through over 90 million tons of paper (700 pounds per person) every year. Not to mention that only 40% of U.S. buisnesses have policies favoring the purchase of sustainable or environmentally preferable products.

OD is releasing its "Green Book" for their B2B clients giving companies the chance to have office supplies that would make any tree-hugger proud. Distributed to Fortune 500 companies as well as non-profits, NGOs and universities and colleges nationwide, the "Green Book" is printed on chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled paper. I know my office is already on this bandwagon. The question is, how long will it be before your's is? Two points for OD for taking care of business in a very green way. Get the full press release here.
