Friday File Fling

Another event that is part of Planet Ark's National Recycling Week is the "Friday File Fling". The reason behind this event is that office paper has a surprisingly low recycling rate, due to the large amounts of paper that is just filed away. This event aims to get offices to go through paper filed in filing cabinets, desk drawers and in-boxes and either re-use the paper or recycle it (keeping in mind mandatory retention periods for some documents and the need to shred sensitive documents).

This is a great way to do some decluttering in the work place and get everyone involved. Alternatively, you may like to apply the principles to your home office. Check out this step-by-step guide.
