Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle: Make the World a Better Place

Posted Thursday, April 16th, 2015 by .

Around the world we have celebrated the earth on April 22nd every year since 1970. This marks the birth of the environmental movement when 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to call for cleaner air, better sewage systems, toxic spill cleanups, and more.

This post is all about what you can reduce, reuse, or recycle to make the world a better place today for the next generation.

Reduce

Reducing is all about lessening human waste and the effects we have on the planet. For example, let’s say you go out and have a nice steak for dinner. Did you drive to a restaurant that’s a couple of blocks away? You could have walked and saved gas. Where is the steak from? If it’s local beef, you cut back on the environmental expenses that went into rendering the beef ready for consumption, as well as transporting it across the US to the destination. Did you use paper napkins? Those napkins were once trees. Get a sense of how much energy you use with the Carbon Footprint calculator.

Traditional Spending Habits That Can Drive Your Small Business into the Ground

Posted Tuesday, January 8th, 2013 by .

 

One good turn deserves another, so we’re re-blogging part of Forbes’ Jessica Bosari’s article mentioning our ink and toner recycling efforts!

Rein in Your Printing Expenses Printer cartridges are expensive and environmentally-unfriendly. In fact, Xerox asserts that from 1991-2008 the company recycled 2 billion pounds of spent toner cartridges.   Whether you use an old-fashioned ink jet or a fancy new laser printer, you’re probably not happy with your current printing costs. Fortunately, most cartridge manufacturers and retailers participate in cartridge recycling programs. These serve dual purposes: They can reduce your ink or toner costs and may keep millions of non-biodegradable cartridges out of the country’s landfills each year. There are a few different ways to recycle your ink toner for great results. Major office supply stores like Staples and Office Depot offer in-store rebates of $2 to $3 per used cartridge. Dedicated cartridge wholesalers offer even more robust programs that permit business owners to exchange their unusable cartridges for an equal number of freshly-recycled devices.
