Studies have shown that we, the humans from the planet earth, are the most destructive species the earth has seen yet. The ironic factor to this statement is that we are not even trying. We are destroying our planet with no intention of doing so. Since a young age we have been taught the benefits of recycling, reducing, and reusing. Not only should we give back to this earth that has given us life but we should take care of it and maintain its health. Recycling can be done at home and at the office! Since this is a business blog, we are going to discuss ways that you can help preserve our planet through recycling methods at your office!
Recycling electronics is very important. Similar to batteries, electronics are considered hazardous waste. They contain precious metals such as lead and mercury. There is monetary value as well as environmental value in breaking down electronics and reselling the metals they contain. By tossing electronics in a company dumpster, negative toxins are released in the atmosphere that can hurt our planet. By taking an effort to preserve our planet it is necessary to properly recycle electronics. Recycling can also reduce company dumping costs as well as helping the environment. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency only 10% of electronic waste is recycled. As humans living on this earth, we need to greatly improve that percentage!
Reusing, refurbishing, fixing, and recycling furniture is also very important. Fabrics, metals, wood, and other materials go into making furniture. When broken down, these materials can be salvaged and used again instead of sitting in a landfill. Your company can also make a profit in selling old furniture going along with the saying that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Refurbishing or fixing up used furniture can also save company costs by reducing costs of new furniture as well company dumping costs. MyOffice, Inc. specializes in environmentally friendly furniture disposition and recycling in efforts to help our planet and reduce individual company costs.

According to the Office Recycling Solutions nearly one gallon of oil is needed to make a new laser cartridge. Within a year of recycling cartridges, we could save the U.S. 400 million gallons of oil. As oil is not a renewable resource, this could have a huge impact in our country alone. When a printer cartridge is thrown into a landfill it will take up to 450 years to decompose. By properly recycling ink cartridges we can have a huge impact on environmental conservation of oil.
