Choosing recyclable, refillable, or reusable office materials cuts what goes to landfill.
Method makes beautiful flexible bins to collect office recycling. The bins are made in New Zealand and include 50–80% recycled materials.
The small team at Method knows that reducing waste starts by buying the right things. For their Wellington-based office, they carefully consider every purchase to reduce its environmental impact. They ask suppliers if products can be recycled, reused or repurposed. And they choose refillable products, including pens, markers, milk, and printer cartridges.
Method’s clear principles make purchasing decisions easy. Anyone on the team can follow them. As a result, more than 90% of materials entering the office don’t end up in landfill. As a bonus, the business saves money too, as products stay in use for longer.
“Sustainability isn’t an action or a product. It's a way of thinking,” says Lee Bright, Marketing Manager. “It’s a business culture of shared values that we practice every day.”
