Whether you run a café, a garage, a factory or an office, you will be able to find re-use or recycling options for much of the waste generated by your workplace.

Research released by Planet Ark shows that Australians are willing to give up an average of $3,674* pay to be able to work in a more natural workplace. However, 28% of workers can’t see any natural features from their workspace. It also shows that having plants around the office helps workers recover from tiredness more quickly, reduces the presence of airborne bacteria and increases productivity.
Only around 1 in every 10 sheets of office paper gets recycled. Much of it ends up 'stored' in files that will never be read again. By hosting a Friday File Fling, you can declutter your office and get good, reusable office paper back into circulation.
