"Green Office" at Home Office

More and more people in Austria are also working from home. But what about the workplace in a private environment? How can a home office be designed so that the workplace is then also environmentally friendly, healthy and safe?

Felt and fibre in the office

The first waterproof felt pens were imported to Germany in the 1960s and neon-coloured highlighters were invented there in 1971. The market reacted enthusiastically to the new pens. Half a century later, a new generation is at work and a lot has changed in the products. The share of sustainably produced felt-tip pens and fibre-tip markers is growing, and the accompanying refills are sophisticated and convenient.

Climate-friendly booklets

If you're smart, you write in booklets that bear the Austrian Ecolabel. And buy and read books that also bear the government seal of approval designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. This guarantees that the production of these printed products is environmentally friendly. And therefore the printed papers can also be recycled.

Climate-friendly school shopping - tips in the video

Our world is changing, and so are our attitudes. From bright white paper to recycled notebooks, from disposable pens to refills, from short-lived plastic items to sustainable solutions.

New guide: Sustainable school bags for our climate

The first school bag of one's own awakens the excitement in first graders about the upcoming start of school. When choosing a model, the design is usually crucial for the new generation. Special attention should be paid to the ergonomics and sustainability of the school bag - which will hopefully be used for several years.  You can also pay attention to the environment when buying school supplies and buy sustainable products.

Circular economy in the office

Paper is good for the circular economy. It can be recycled far more frequently than was assumed for years. This is shown by a study conducted by the Technical University of Darmstadt. According to the study, paper fibers can be recycled almost indefinitely. This means that waste paper is an even more valuable raw material than assumed.


Refill: Keep toner moduls in circulation!

Since two years, the company Eurotoner has been newly owned by two entrepreneurs from the district of Melk and currently employs nine people at the company's location in Persenbeug-Gottsdorf. The company has 30 years of experience in the recycling of toner and practical environmental protection. Now Eurotoner is the new licensee of the Austrian Ecolabel for "refillable toners".


Modern office- Green Office

For 30 years environmental protection has become a real topic in our offices. The main focus originally was on waste separation and collection. Later the use of recycling paper and cartonage became dominant and changed the appearance of offices. In Austria there was a legandary filing system from office company Bene that became the first product awarded with the Austrian Ecolabel.

Sustainable school supplies conquer the store racks - the joint effort pays off!

With the initiative "Clever shopping for schools", the Ministry of Climate Action and the commerce in Austria are promoting climate-friendly and low-waste school articles. The demand for environmentally friendly school articles is rising: Manufacturers and retailers are increasingly convincing with low-waste and climate-friendly products.

Less plastic and more climate protection when shopping for school

Writing, lace, painting, drawing, gluing, having a snack without plastic and with climate protection - the initiative Clever shopping for schools shows how this can be done. Parents can set an example at their next school purchase in paper shops, because climate protection starts with buying the right school supplies.

Drinking at the office and on the road - but without litter!

Sufficient drinking is essential for concentrated work and good performance. If you prefer to drink from a glass, you should have a bottle ready to refill so that you don't have to get up every time. Drinking bottles are ideal. However, in the interests of the environment, nothing should be made of plastic. Disposable plastic bottles, in particular, create a veritable flood of waste, which places a heavy burden on the environment and mankind.

Thriving in the home office

Anyone who works in a home office has certainly already experienced that it takes a lot of self-discipline to be able to work in a concentrated manner. Then there is the equipment and the question of how to avoid the big ergonomic mistakes? There are practical solutions for all of this. 

Demonstrate with school shopping! Parents and children pay attention to the environment and climate.

Learning about climate protection and paying attention to it when shopping at school. Nothing sounds more logical than that, and yet there is still a lot of room for improvement when it comes to school shopping.
