The world has moved green, but we all need to be doing our part to make it work. So many of us at home are happy to separate plastics and cardboard away from the rubbish bin, but when we get to work those good practices; quite literally go to waste. It’s understandable that in the working environment, where rushing around and deadlines takeover, it’s easy to forget.
Making recycling manageable in our everyday routine is vital for its success. Otherwise we will forget or simply won’t bother. Even in this digital age, the amount of paper we produce is astronomical. I mentioned in a previous article that in the UK alone we produce enough paper every day to fill up Trafalgar Square to the top of Nelson’s Column. We need to do our part to make sure that we are recycling what we can.
Unfortunately, it is all too easy to ignore the problem and carry on without giving it any time or attention. Each of us is one piece in the puzzle and it means we all need to be doing our best to fulfill our daily necessities. We need to trust that everyone is making intentional steps and lead by example. Helping others to get involved by making those proactive steps ourselves will create a positive attitude towards being eco-friendly.
Shred-on-Site’s policies are designed to be as green as possible. This is why we recycle all of the paper we shred - so you don’t have to. For every tone of paper recycled, 17 trees are saved. By using an on-site paper shredding service you can achieve a fully eco-friendly paper shredding policy without investing the man-power or time behind implementing it.
Using a document shredding specialist like Shred-on-Site will improve your recycling capabilities, strengthen security and make sure you’re complying with the law. After we shred your documents on-site, we return to our warehouse where we cube all the shredded paper. We then transport these cubes to be recycled and reused.
