With more than 800 products available in the range, customers can choose to shop and find the products they need from sustainable attributes including; recycled paper, wooden materials, bamboo, natural ingredients, or items that are plastic-free, refillable, biodegradable, compostable or that can be reused.
The circular economy and providing a wider range of greener choices is a key focus in Officeworks’ Positive Difference Plan 2025, the retailer’s long-term business approach to supporting people and the planet.
The retailer aims to source and design more products that are both sustainable and cost effective, such as products made with renewable or recycled materials, that are refillable or reusable, to help customers achieve their zero waste goals.
Officeworks Managing Director, Sarah Hunter, said: “Choosing more sustainable products is the easiest way for our customers to make a positive difference when shopping with us. Greener Choices is just one part of our commitment to supporting people and the planet and we look forward to continuing to expand our range.
“As well as making more sustainable purchase decisions, we know that customers are looking for savings and value more than ever, especially during the recent Back to School period. That’s why we worked hard to ensure that we could offer over 100 Greener Choices products for Back to School that are affordable without compromising on their quality.’’
By shopping at Officeworks, customers are already choosing to support sustainable initiatives such as Restoring Australia, FSC certified and sustainably sourced paper and products that are ethically sourced and protect workers’ rights in the supply chain.
The recently launched second iteration of Officeworks’ Positive Difference Plan outlines a series of 18 commitments aimed at supporting its team, enhancing connections to local communities, reducing environmental impact and sourcing products in sustainable and responsible ways.
