Greening the EBC

The EBC is constantly reviewing procedures to reduce resources used, reuse appropriately and recycle what cannot be reused. The following measures are taken to reduce the impact of EBC’s activities on the environment:

Program “Greening”

  • Handouts are always printed double-sided
  • Presentations are posted electronically
  • Nametags are collected and re-used, when possible
  • Whenever possible EBC orders catering through Basil Tree, a sustainable catering company based in Cambridge, MA

Office “Greening”

  • Office location is easily accessible via public transportation
  • All paper used is 100% post-consumer recycled
  • Laser printer ink cartridges are recycled and replaced by Encore Images
  • Where possible, office products (e.g. paper clips, folders, binders) are reused
  • Office electronics are powered down at the end of each day
  • The EBC office maintains reusable dishes, flatware, and cups for staff
  • The EBC office maintains a compost bin
