Staples Switches All Copy & Print Centers To Recycled Paper
Staples says that all of its 1,400 Copy & Print Centers in the U.S. are now using recycled paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as the standard offering for black and white copy and print jobs – a first for a national copy and print operation.
Staples now offers more FSC-certified paper than any other office supplier, providing both 100 percent and 50 percent post-consumer waste recycled content choices.
“These FSC-certified recycled content paper products are another way that Staples makes it easy for customers to make a difference for the environment-what we call EcoEasy,” said Mark Buckley, vice president of environmental affairs at Staples.
Staples has set a goal of moving the majority of paper products it offers to FSC-certified paper by the end of 2010, based upon availability of supply and market conditions.
Last month, Staples stopped doing business with Asia Pulp & Paper due to environmental concerns.
