Protecting resources using recycled paper
Recycled paper is now almost as white as virgin fibre paper, does not block your photocopier and is suitable for almost every application whether for a printer or photocopier or as writing paper or kitchen rolls. The Blue Angel environmental label guarantees that 100 percent of the paper fibres are from recovered paper. This preserves our forests because it is not necessary to cut down any trees and ensures valuable habitats are retained for animals and plants. 100% recycled paper also has the edge when it comes to its environmental impact: the manufacturing process for these products saves around 70 percent of the water and 60 percent of the energy in comparison to virgin fibre paper. The Blue Angel ecolabel also guarantees that no harmful chemicals or optical brighteners are added during the production of the paper.
Environmentally-friendly printing and copying
If your printers and photocopiers have not been working correctly for a long time or have become very old then you can rely on the Blue Angel when making a new purchase. This is because the Blue Angel identifies office equipment that exhibits especially low emissions, have low energy consumption and possess a duplex unit for double-sided printing. And refillable toner modules holding the Blue Angel ecolabel offer a sensible alternative when replacing empty toner modules. This is because these modules have been reconditioned, reduce waste and preserve resources.
Low emission telephones
The Blue Angel also provides a good level of guidance when purchasing a new telephone, especially if you place importance on health and the protection of resources. For example, an important requirement in the Blue Angel ecolabel is the precautionary limitation of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by mobile telephones.
Healthy indoor climate
The Blue Angel ecolabel allows you to create an office climate where you can work more healthily. Office stools or furniture awarded with the environmental label place a low burden on the environment and people's health from the production process and their entire service life right through to their recycling and disposal.
