At Purple Office it is our belief that Climate Change is a significant issue for all of us, but most especially for our children and grandchildren. Whether you believe that the damage to our environment is man-made or natural, there is no doubt that we need to do something to guarantee our lifestyles, and even our survival. It is true that just one person cannot make a difference; however if enough people make changes to their lifestyle, the difference can be multiplied a million-fold. Stationery and office supplies may make up a small part of your company’s expenditure in a year, but every business needs it. We would like to give you the opportunity to make a difference by giving you a choice between traditional and environmentally friendly office supplies. You can make your buying decision based on value for money, quality, suitability sustainability, and ensure your own impact on the environment is minimised.
Our online catalogue service is there to make life easier for busy people. To search for the environmentally beneficial products simply tick the "green products only" box. You can even build your own ‘mini-catalogue’ of favourite items. Please visit our website at www.purple-office.com to browse without obligation.
