Here are a few of the things Granite Office Supplies is doing right now to GO green:
1. Paperless invoicing and statements – less paper, less mail, less resources used for delivery and quicker retrieval by customers
2. Natural Gas Delivery Vehicles – significant reduction in emissions, reduced delivery costs which allow us to provide free delivery and maintain our free same day delivery policy (once you go to same day delivery you will wonder what you did without it)
3. Rocky Mountain Power Blue Sky Business Partner – in May of 2009 Granite Office Supplies committed to offset at least 50% of our electricity with wind power credits (granted, this one does cost us more, but we want to reduce our environmental impact)
5. Free pickup of empty toner cartridges – toner cartridges are very easily recycled and should never be thrown away, just have them available for our drivers the next time he brings a delivery
6. Free pickup of used cardboard boxes – we use a lot of them for deliveries and it keeps costs down if we don’t have to buy them
7. Cardboard and paper recycling program – all of our paper and cardboard waste gets recycled (we used to go so far as driving vanloads of cardboard down to the recycling center, but now are fortunate to have a paper dumpster on site)
