For many of us, we know the importance of recycling in our homes. Similarly, recycling in the workplace is just as vital. It can save businesses money and also make for a more eco-conscious team. Nearly half of the waste generated in the U.S. alone comes from businesses and other non-residential locations. Today, we want to highlight recycling opportunities you can be aware of in your own business space, and also three of our products that align with the mission of creating a greener earth - figuratively and literally.
