What is it about?
The use of office supplies is not just about immediate protection of the environment and health. Another important aspect is the use of secondary raw materials from recycling sources and the use of sustainably produced raw materials (sustainably produced wood for paper and products made of wood).
Material for writing and printing, such as booklets, blocks, envelopes
Material for archiving, like files, covers
Material for writing and drawing, such as wooden pens, pens
Other products, like adhesives, rulers etc.
Products from recycled materials (for example, paper, booklets, rulers, refillable writing utensils, etc.) and products whose raw materials come from sustainable cultivation are generally advertised. Criteria can also be the refillability and – in the case of electronic devices – the power supply with photovoltaic cells.
Excluded are products made from biodegradable plastics and products with harmful ingredients in questionable amounts.
