Environmental awareness is no longer the preserve of the ardent activist: it is something which is gaining considerable momentum in terms of popularity and importance. With widespread concerns regarding the extent to which we abuse the planet alongside increased endeavours to endorse sustainable products and reduce carbon emissions; an environmental corporate conscience is now nothing short of essential. At DGOS the issue of environmental awareness is of the upmost importance; to such an extent that we have an entirely separate section of our website which contains only eco-friendly products – Recycled Office Supplies.
In addition to a broad selection of recycled paper and card items, we also offer all manner of environmentally conscious products which are less commonly found – From carbon neutral, recycled calculators; through to recycled pens and pencils. One of the biggest breakthroughs in the field of recycled consumables however is in the field of printer ink cartridges. There are a number of manufacturers who have launched extensive lines of remanufactured ink cartridges or re-used cartridges. As well as reducing the environmental impact of replacing ink cartridges with brand new alternatives: these ink cartridges are also for the most part considerably cheaper than the standard cartridge alternatives: yet offer an equal level of performance. Our 5 Star range in particular offer exceptional value, premium quality and peace of mind as a result of the high percentage of recycled materials utilised in their construction and packaging.
In order to try and halt the rapid deterioration of our planet and reduce our drain on the earth’s resources, a huge range of different materials are now recycled. In fact, it is highly likely that there are more recycled office products available here at DGOS than you’d never ever thought possible: for the sake of the environment - we strongly recommend that you take a look.
In addition to stocking environmentally minded office products, we also run a toner and cartridge recycling scheme here at DGOS, so please call the team when you have finished with your printer cartridges and consumables - and we will organise collection of these to be recycled. All proceeds from this collection and recycling scheme go to charity.
