If you had the chance to visit our Kohler LivingHome while it was on display in Long Beach, CA, this February, I hope you noticed the sharp study filled with recycled office supplies and sustainable home office furniture by Office Depot.
At the “Office Depot Green” online store, you can purchase recycled paper and envelopes, refillable and recycled pens, pencils, and markers, Energy Star technology, non-toxic office furniture made from recycled materials, and more. It is the first office supply line dedicated to sustainability and aims to provide packaging that quickly identifies these products to consumers. Browse through the entire Green Office Depot line.
To help you out even further, Office Depot also publishes a “Guide to Buying Green” filled with information about the sustainable qualifications of their products and what to look for to reduce waste, energy, and chemicals in your purchases.
Office Depot also has a corporate commitment to the environment. The Office Depot environmental mission is to “Buy Green, Be Green and Sell Green”. The company’s “green” initiatives include making FSC-certfied paper widely available, reducing their carbon dioxide emissions by more than 10%, and opening its first LEED-certified retail store. Like LivingHomes, Office Depot believes that sustainability is key to the economic well being of their company.
