    People ‘fail to recycle’ at work
    People are wasting masses of paper and water at work despite diligently recycling at home, a survey has said.
    One
    in five recycle nothing at work, according to the survey of 2,000
    adults by Envirowise, which advises industry on making efficient use of
    resources.The company estimated 32 million litres of water and a
    billion sheets of paper could be saved daily if people acted as they
    did in their own homes.Firms should do more to encourage green
    attitudes at work, the report said.

    Envirowise
    said workers blamed their employers for not giving them the chance to
    save energy or cut back on materials.The group has called on companies
    to provide recycling bins, install motion sensor lighting and make sure
    computers are shut down at night.Its survey found that one in seven of
    those questioned had no idea how much paper they used at work.It said
    many firms were not re-using or recycling inkjet cartridges and added
    that electronic and electrical equipment made up, on average, 4% of
    European municipal waste.
