Staples EcoEasy covered in new Podcast from NewPage Corporation

Thursday, July 15, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Miamisburg, Ohio - Staples, Inc., a company committed to making it easy for customers, demonstrates as much with their comprehensive environmental program, EcoEasy, the topic of a new episode in the popular On Paper sustainability podcast series. Sponsored by NewPage Corporation, North America's largest coated paper manufacturer, all On Paper podcasts are available for download free-of-charge at www.OnPaperSeries.com.

Featuring Mark Buckley, vice president of environmental affairs for Staples, Inc., this episode addresses ways in which companies, as well as individuals, can make a difference in protecting the environment. "We make it very easy for folks to find products that have a better environmental attribute," Buckley shares.

Through EcoEasy, Staples focuses their environmental efforts on three major areas including products, recycling services and internal operations. By offering customers innovative environmental products and services, to implementing energy conservation, waste reduction, recycling and green building initiatives in their own internal operations, they've been able to achieve measurable results and capture accolades from some of the nation's top green business lists.

When discussing the concept of democratizing sustainability, making it accessible to the general public, Buckley explains to On Paper listeners, "Our strategy is to fundamentally change the way that products get brought to market. {We ask} how can we create more opportunities across other categories in our business, where customers don't necessarily have to make that trade-off in terms of price?"

In an Entrepreneur magazine article published earlier this year, Staples illustrated for readers how to "green" an existing office space by making smarter choices in their product selection and processes. During this On Paper episode, Buckley further explains that process to listeners and provides tangible actions to pursue.
