OfficeMax, TerraCycle Offer Green Office Products
OfficeMax (NYSE:OMX) has teamed up with eco-capitalist company, TerraCycle, to deliver a new line of green office products to OfficeMax customers. Seven new TerraCycle products, including innovative binders, pencil cases, trashcans and cleaners will be marketed. The products and packaging are made entirely from waste, reducing the amount of garbage going to landfills.
The trashcans and recycling bins are made from 100 percent recycled plastic. TerraCycle salvages thousands of tons of plastic from a variety of applications and turns it into environmentally friendly products. The binders are made from 100 percent recycled cardboard for the covers and 90 percent recycled steel for the rings. The binders also come with a return program for used binders.
"OfficeMax is pleased to provide our customers with the environmentally responsible products that TerraCycle is pioneering. TerraCycle's unconventional manufacturing methods have led to some of the most progressive products on the market today," Ryan Vero, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer for OfficeMax, said in a statement. "We are happy to be a part of TerraCycle's efforts to make a greener workspace."
