It constantly amazes me how many things are thrown away when they can be used again? What is it with us? Are we such slaves to advertising and so insecure that we are afraid to use something again?
Lets ask ourselves:
– Can the product be used again?
– Is it broken beyond repair or can it be used even with a minor blemish?
– Can I use the back of the printed document for scrap paper?
– Can I re-label it for some other purpose?
Its amazing what can be re-used: Paper, manila folders, envelopes, boxes, bubble-tape, durable coffee mugs, cloth napkins, towels, bottles (refills), empty jars (for leftover food), paperclips, the list is endless. Share with us some ways that you have re-used office products?
Oh and a great bonus is that your overall costs are reduced!
