Discussion: Biodegradable consumables

January 31, 2011
Join our Discussion of the Week on the CM/Cleaning & Maintenance Management OnlineBulletin Board and share your thoughts with other industry professionals.
This week''s discussion focuses on biodegradable consumables.
Increasing numbers of contractors and facilities managers are striving to operate more sustainably.
There are plenty of ways to achieve this goal, from something as simple as installing energy-efficient lighting to more involved projects like installing a green roof or solar panels.
But, what about the little things? Have you given any thought to the use of biodegradable consumables? Like paper products with high levels of post-consumer recycled content or eco-friendly plastic cutlery?
If you don''t already use biodegradable consumables, is it something your facility might look into?
