  • (1888PressRelease) September 24, 2010 - Within Purex a new team of five people volunteered to meet regularly to discuss, implement and promote as many green projects within the company as possible. Leanne Kilcommons - Green Team Leader explains, "When you first start with a project like this you think you will come up with five or six things to change in the company but once you start thinking green, lots of ideas pop up out of the woodwork."

    "Some of the more obvious things to do are recycle metals, glass, cans, plastics, paper, cardboard, fax/copier and printer cartridges, but what about recycling things like stamps? These can be cut out and donated to charities which can use them to raise funds"

    "We also looked at ways to reduce the amount of materials we used such as paper. We did this by doing simple things such as not printing customer orders received by email and only printing one invoice for the customer with Purex only keeping electronic copies. Now all orders are now confirmed by e-mail wherever possible to reduce printing and faxing. We also scan all paperwork to generate an electronic version for use between departments."

    Leanne sums up her thoughts, "What surprised me was how easy lots of these changes have been to make. All of our team members have been very supportive and have come up with their own ideas such as removing personal waste baskets to make sure everyone recycles as much as possible. I would think most companies can carry out this exercise and if it results in cost savings then that is even better for the environment and the bottom line."
