Principle 5

Buy green supplies

You should also consider environmental impact every time you buy supplies for the organisation.  Look for paper and other materials, for example, that are recyclable and ideally made from recycled materials.  Products are typically also greener if they have less packaging.  Look for products that have certifications for sustainability and social economy businesses and companies that make environmental awareness a core part of their operations.
