Each spring, businesses in King County are invited to demonstrate their commitment to waste reduction and recycling and apply for recognition as a Best Workplace for Recycling and Waste Reduction. Check back in spring 2011 to apply as a 2011 Best Workplace for Recycling and Waste Reduction.
“Simplicity Décor is a returning Best Workplace because the company tries their best to be environmentally conscious and responsible to both the public and internally. Simplicity Décor offers a wide range of products that are either made locally, made in the United States and/or made with recycled materials. Internally, Simplicity Décor is putting recycling and waste reduction into action – whether it is through recycling wood pallets, scraps, plastics and electronic equipment, using 30 percent post consumer recycled content or compostable products, or having a program in place to reuse surplus furniture or other durable items. Paper usage is reduced through double-sided printing, eliminating unnecessary reports, forms and unsolicited mail, as well as circulating memos, documents, reports and publications and posting announcements on bulletin boards.”
