Step2 has partnered with Recycle Solutions to reduce our carbon footprint. Each Step2 employee has been provided with a desk container to recycle computer paper, pamphlets, envelopes, magazines, newspaper, catalogs, and other cardboard and paper items.
Why Step2 recycles:
A typical office generates one pound of paper per employee
77 percent of what is wasted in offices across the country is recyclable
Paper makes up approximately one-third of landfill waste
Making paper creates both air and water pollution, but recycling techniques have been refined and mills can recycle paper with less pollution than when making new paper
It takes up to 40% less energy to recycle paper than it does to create paper
