We pride ourselves on being ahead of the game when it comes to distributing green and eco-friendly office supplies and janitorial products to our customers. When we work with our clients, we try to recommend as many green products as a way to promote sustainability as well as eco-consciousness. Not only is sustainability and environmental conservation important for our customers, but for us as well. We emphasize sustainability in terms of operating more energy efficiently, while conserving natural resources. We outline how we have truly gone green.
Eco-Friendly Office & Janitorial Supplies
We offer many different sustainable products made from recycled materials, including printer paper, can liners and cleaning products. We offer environmentally friendly products from well-known brands like Sharp, Herman Miller and GreenSorb. We also provide multiple training programs for Betco products, ensuring our customers are using the most environmentally friendly processes coupled with green supplies.
Ink & Toner Recycling Program
Ink and toner recycling reduces the carbon footprint of our customers’ operations. According to the EPA, more than 300 million plastic printer cartridges are pumped in landfills each year. This statistic is significant and illustrates the amount of waste business owners and consumers are contributing on a yearly basis. By recycling our client’s ink cartridges, we are conserving natural resources, limiting our carbon footprint, reducing the amount of waste placed in landfills, and putting a little money in their pockets.
Facility Recycling Program
We follow a strict and extensive recycling process at our facility in Galesburg, Illinois. Each desk has both a trash and a recyclable receptacle so that all waste is disposed of properly. We also make sure to properly dispose of all the packaging of products that come into our facility.
Streamlining Billing Process
In addition to our internal recycling program, we strive to be as sustainable as possible by streamlining our billing system. When we bill a customer, we make the process as paper-free as possible. By utilizing technology in our billing process, we are reducing the amount of natural resources used.
OSI uses logistic planning for our delivery routes, ensuring that we’re delivering as efficiently as possible. When we’re delivering, we’re mindful of both gas consumption as well as emissions.
It’s our desire and commitment not only to our customers, but also to our planet that motivates us to keep our operations up to date with the best green practices. Learn more about how we make ordering easy.
