Such policies as energy saving light bulbs and timed light switches could save firm’s a fortune in running costs, good recycling policies will also mean that the office stays tidy and efficient.
One of the key areas which some companies have not yet through about is office furniture; there is a distinct ability to reduce landfill if more businesses thought about recycling their old office furniture even if this means that it is sold to another firm or person. If the company needs to purchase brand new office furniture items then donating or selling their office furniture for recycling or donating it to charity will help the environment.

A good tip when you are looking for new office furniture items is to look for a material which carries a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) label.
