Today's Systems Corporation doesn't sell these particular products, but we offer these as some suggestions for an office going green. Let's take a look at some of these simple products that you can easily implement into your sustainable workplace.
1.) Refillable Whiteboard Markers
Instead of creating more waste by throwing away dried up markers, try the refillable markers that can be used again and again.
Cost: 12 for $30, AusPen
2.) Hand-Powered Paper Shredder
It is possible to shred paper without using electricity with a hand-powered paper shredder. As a bonus, it is a great exercise!
Cost: $24, UncommonGoods
3.) The Seven-Year Pen
No need to order boxes of disposable Bic pens. There is now a pen that will literally last you seven years. As long as you don't lose it, no need to have 10 pens at your desk that will dry out within a few weeks.
Cost: $8, See Jane Work
4.) 100 Percent Recycled Notes
Post-it notes are important, but they waste a lot of paper. Now you can get the recycled version of Post-it notes!
Cost: $18, The Green Office
5.) Recycled Tissues and Paper Towels
Marcal is the leading brand for 100 percent recycled paper products. They have been saving trees since 1950.

6.) Recycled Trash Bins
You can now buy recycling bins made from recycled materials. Terracycle's models are made from traditionally non-recyclable products such as chip bags, toothbrushes, and anything else that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
Cost: $15, Terracycle.com
7.) USB Cell
Instead of throwing away batteries, recharge them from a USB port with USB Cell.

These binders are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as an environmentally friendly product.
Cost: 10 1 inch binders for $34, ReBinder
9.) Moss Terrarium
Plants are great for the office. They clean the air and brighten the atmosphere. They are a lot of upkeep though. A terrarium requires a lot less maintenance and they last longer. This particular model is made from a recycled wine bottle.

It's the little things that count. Each sustainable item you add to your office is a step towards a greener tomorrow.
