The Green Office

It may not be a Staples or Office Max but your one stop green office supply shop is right here! The Green Officeis so serious about being green they even amended their articles of incorporation to included sustainable practices. That is definitely some serious green business! I always say it that it is our duty as respectable greenies to patronize green businesses and if  The Green Officeis willing to offer us this great opportunity to make our offices even greener we should take advantage. You can purchase supplies, paper, ink & toner, break room amenities, furniture and janitorial supplies all in one place. Also $50 free shipping! I hope to see The Green Officebe a contender to the likes of Staples and Office Max that offer some green alternatives to stay in the loop but have no where near the green assortment that The Green Office offers. - Green products. Great prices. – Green Products, Great Prices! Story:
We were established in 2005 by founder and CEO Alex Szabo, a former sustainability consultant and educator who had experienced first-hand the need for a single source of environmentally and socially responsible office products and services. Mr. Szabo’s vision was of a workplace run exclusively on green products and driven by sustainable practice. Every day, we empower consumers to align values with action by providing easy and affordable access to office greeing essentials.
