Headline: Depot steps up green offensive
22 December 2003 – Delray Beach (FL): Office Depot is set to launch The Green Book, which it claims is the industry’s first catalogue consisting solely of environmentally preferable products.
The catalogue, which is being printed on elemental chlorine free, 100% post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled content paper, will be available to Office Depot’s business services division contract customers in time for the New Year and will contain more than 1,000 products ranging from paper and filing to storage, dated goods and machine supplies.
Depot’s director of environmental affairs Tyler Elm said: “We are pleased to be the first in our industry to provide an easy-to-use, streamlined and environmentally responsible vehicle for our customers to purchase products containing recycled content.”
