Officially, this is the third post in a mini-segment here at Jetson Green called the “Green Office.” First I talked about getting set up with a Think chair, and then I mentioned the Liege Desk. What next? How about the thing you use most in the office? Your supplies. There’s a great resource for finding sustainable supplies at the comprehensive www.thegreenoffice.com. The Green Office is “an online retailer of recycled, environmentally friendly, and sustainable business products, school supplies, and paper.” With regard to green products, it really is the most complete source for supplies (paper, envelopes, calendars, binders, folders, ink, toner, etc.), technology (fax, printer, shredder, telephone, etc.), furniture (shelving, storage, tables, etc.), janitorial supplies (waste containers, cleaning supplies, light bulbs, etc.), and breakroom supplies (cups, plates, etc.).
Established in 2005 by Alex Szabo, The Green Office itself is committed to setting an example as a sustainable business. Feel free to skip over to EcoTalk for a 7:50 minute interview with Szabo. Originally a sustainability consultant, he’s quite the eco-entrepreneur. In his interview, he talks about how he came upon the idea of starting this business and what he does to continually update the Green Office catalog with nascent product offerings. See you next time.
