Environmental responsibility and energy efficiency is a very serious business at Canterbury Business Equipment Ltd. We encourage and inform our customers on how to best to switch to sustainable and energy saving products in order to reduce waste and pollution. including the option to search for Green products when ordering online.
We stock hundreds of products made from recycled material which are symbolised in the Unique catalogue with our enviro logo. Look out for our "green" paper, pads, folders, card and Ecover cleaning products. We also carry a large range of remanufactured toner cartridges, each one conserving about a half a gallon of oil when compared with manufacturing a new one.
We can help you implement a green policy at work by installing recycling paper and toner bins which we can remove when full - and that's just the start.
Fair Trade products also take top priority at CBE. We are painfully aware of the unethical working practices taking place in some less privileged countries.
By supporting Fair Trade products, we are ensuring sustainability and self sufficiency in those most affected communities.
Over two million non-biodegradable toner cartridges are thrown away each year in the UK, each weighing about 1.8kg which just adds to the already overflowing landfills sites holding the nation's waste.
Printer toner cartridges contain very fine particular powder which, although the constituents may not be toxic, can present a minor hazard.
To assist you in disposing of your cartridges in an efficient environmental manner, we have formed a partnership with a leading waste management company who have established a collection system for empty laser toner and ink printer cartridges from your offices.
Just contact us and we can arrange for a cartridge collection box to be located in strategic locations throughout your offices.
