Office

Batteries

In an environmental boxing ring rechargeables will KO disposables every time!

Blu-tack

At least it's reusable I suppose...

CD / DVD Spindles

What on earth can these be used for?

Computers

Around 1.6 tons of raw material are needed for an individual computer - and that's just making it, we're yet to dispose of it!

Correction Fluid

Tricky to find, however at least this one is made from some recycled material.

Drawing Pins

Choose all metal pins rather than the plastic topped ones and buy plenty as they often come in plastic containers.

Envelopes

Handy cut up and used as memo pad paper...reuse before recycle!

Eraser

Pencils are better then pens...so are erasers better than white out?

Glue

Very handy, but how to avoid the rubbish?

Highlighter Pen

An essential tool of the modern office, here's the Rubbish Free solution.

Mail

Thinking outside the box can lead to some interesting results, such as using popped corn for protecting fragile items, it works great!

Paper Clips

Great for fiddling with when on the phone!

Pens

'The pen is mightier than the sword'...indeed.

Printing

A necessary evil, the paperless office still seems a way off!

Rulers

Buy a wooden or steel instead of plastic.

Stapler

Believe it or not, but you can get wooden ones!

Sticky Tape

There are other options besides plastic based tape.

String

Instead of plastic or nylon string get a ball of real brown string.
