Pilot B2P Pens

Have you tried Pilot's B2P Retractable Pens? These are the world's first pens made from recycled water bottles. These pens are made of 89% post consumer plastic water bottles. Combined with the smooth smear proof writing with G2 gel ink, this is a great pen and a great use for all those empty water bottles! For reading this newsletter, we would be happy to send you a B2P pen sample with your next order.

For your Free Sample, type B2P Pen in the notes field on your next order.

NOTE: Limit one sample per customer.


 
Emerald Brand Tree-Free Products 
If you really want to make your office green, change your paper goods to Emerald Brand Tree-Free Products. These products are made from 70% bagasse which is a byproduct of sugar cane processing, and 30% Eucalyptus, a far more renewable resource than traditional pulp. These tissues do not scrape or scratch and are incredibly soft. The line is complete with utensils, plates, cups and dinner napkins. In addition to being good for the environment, these tissues are great for your bottom line!

Going Green with Garvey's!

While the selection of recycled office products available used to be small, we now have a vast selection of recycled products in every category- including furniture! Going Green can be accomplished in many different ways. The obvious way is to purchase products that have recycled content. To easily see the thousands of recycled products we currently carry, you can ask for a copy of our 2011 Green Catalog or simply go online and click on the 'Recycled Products' under 'My Account' tab.

While buying recycled products is one way of going green, at Garvey's, we have started several other green initiatives. Did you know that we will pick up and recycle old pens, used toner cartridges, old computers and electronic equipment, batteries and the cardboard boxes that we deliver your order in?

Through our program Recycle for a Reason, we collect used toner cartridges and donate the proceeds generated from these cartridges to a different charitable organization every quarter. Together, we have raised over $50,000 for various local charities and we hope to continue to grow this program. We added pen and writing instrument recycling last year as well as picking up our old cardboard boxes from your office. This year we have added recycling old computers and electronic equipment.
