In honor of Earth Day, we at The W.B. Delivery thought it appropriate to highlight some popular green items that our customers enjoy. The below is just a small sample of the green items W.B. Mason has in stock and available for order currently. These items are considered green due to the ways they are created, used, or disposed of, which minimize the impact on the natural world and eliminate unnecessary waste.
- Pilot® B2P Bottle-2-Pen Recycled Pen
How about the world’s first pens made from recycled plastic bottles! The Bottle-2-Pen (B2P) line from Pilot is made almost entirely from recycled bottles and is the first of its kind in the world. 89% of the B2P gel pens and 83% of the ballpoint pens are made from recycled plastic bottles, and they also have a unique water-bottle like barrel design.
- Guardian EcoGuard Indoor/Outdoor Wiper Mat
Here we have a great example of repurposing other materials. This mat is made from 99% post-consumer recycled content: the carpeted surface is made from water bottles, and the all-rubber backing that is made from used tires. Wipe your feet clean and think fondly of your first car.
- Boise® Recycled Paper
Boise® multi-use recycled paper maintains the same hardworking characteristics and brightness as a non-recycled alternative. The paper mills where this paper is made are also FSC certified – the FSC certification is considered the “gold standard” designation for wood harvested from forests that are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, environmentally conscious, and economically viable.
- Saunders Aluminum Storage Clipboard
Aluminum clipboards from Saunders are manufactured using 89% recycled content with a minimum of 30% post-consumer waste. By using aluminum, 95% less energy is used to recycle this item, and leads to a 95% reduction in CO2 emissions. In their manufacturing processes, Saunders displaces the equivalent of 51,000,000 aluminum cans annually.
- Seventh Generation® Professional All-Purpose Cleaner
This all-purpose cleaning spray is made to be free and clear of dyes and fragrances. This product provides all-purpose cleaning solution for commercial-use customers who want a unique value proposition with trusted results. The formula is guaranteed VOC-free, meaning it has no volatile organic compounds that reduce air quality, and creates no harsh fumes.
At W.B. Mason we are proud to carry green products as part of our assortment and are continuously working to expand our offerings. We are always looking for more green opportunities to share with our customers, such as the Keurig® K-Cycle™ recycling program we discussed last week. Check out more ways to improve your sustainability efforts at your workplace and your home.
