Office Supplies

Dalhousie currently has a purchasing agreement with Staples Advantage.

Look for the EcoEasy logo to identify products which meet Staples’ “eco-conscious” criteria:

  • 30% post-consumer recycled content, or more
  • Third party standards and certifications such as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), GreenSeal, Rainforest Alliance, ENERGY STAR, and Crade to Crade, among others
  • Other eco-design elements such as biobased plastics, rapidly renewable materials and agricultural residues (ex. sugarcane by-products)

* As per the Dalhousie Paper Policy, paper purchased by Dalhousie units should be sourced directly from the Dalhousie Print Centre, which stocks 100% post-consumer paper.

Office Supplies Purchasing Tips:

  • Look for products which are durable, long lasting, and refillable
  • Buy office supplies in bulk to minimize packaging and delivery trips
  • Minimize the amount of packaging material and that packaging is reused or recycled
