Dry Erase Boards

Americans use 85,000,000 tons of paper every year, which translates to about 680 pounds per person. Efforts to limit your “paper footprint” will make a difference for the planet and ultimately save you money. Cutting back on your use of paper products doesn’t have to be complicated. Small changes in your daily life through recycling,  reusing, and using green products can make a big difference in the world around you. Let’s dive in to show you how whiteboards can help you create a greener workplace.

Limit Paper Waste

Custom Dry Erase BoardOne of the easiest ways to limit paper waste in your office is to discourage unnecessary printing. Limiting paper waste can also be done by using online documents and programs like Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Drive to easily share documents, projects, and spreadsheets. If you have an essential document you wish to share with a coworker or boss, you can share it through Google Docs, allowing edits, suggestions, or simply viewing privileges. Encouraging workers to print only when necessary makes a difference in your company’s paper consumption in the long run.

Introduction of Dry Erase Products

Dry erase boards are great solutions for creating a green workplace, perfect for brainstorming, meetings, taking notes, and more. Dry erase boards are an excellent compromise for workplaces aiming to limit their paper waste while still having access to media for brainstorming, solving problems, and visual explanations.

We specialize in small, medium, extra-large, and full-length walls, among other dry erase solutions. Depending on your needs, MyWhiteBoards can offer you a wide array of options.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

A good rule to encourage within your workplace is to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. This mentality is presented in everyday life; ask yourself a few questions before throwing something away. “Can I reduce my usage of this item?”, “Could I reuse this item again?” or “Can I recycle this item?”

An easy example of this process could be a piece of paper; you can reduce your use of paper in the workplace by following many different habits. Depending on the way you’ve used it, the paper may be able to be reused, but if not, recycle it! Another example could be a plastic water bottle from your lunch. You can reduce the use of these by using reusable water bottles.

Starting your eco-friendly journey can be hard, and difficult to understand where to start. But these small tips can set you on the right foot forward, allowing you to start making a difference.
