So, why us?
Recorra Office Supplies, has 3 primary sustainable goals, to:

Champion circular economy solutions

Our office supplies are built upon circular economy principles. As a waste management company, this makes complete sense. We use the waste we collect to create new, innovative products which have a second life.

This is, in part, thanks to our SustainABLE Box, which allows for those hard-to-recycle items, such as crisp packets, coffee pods and stationery items to be transformed into new items. Treating plastic waste as the valuable resource is it.

Recorra's SustainABLE box

We offer a range of circular economy products, one of our most popular being recycled paper. We collect and send your paper to a mill in the Champagne region of northern France. The recycled paper is then sold back to our customers, completing the circle. Buy yours here

Our recycled paper has saved, over the last five years; 92.376l of water, safeguarded 53 trees and has avoided 2,274kg of CO₂ emissions being produced.

Encourage you to choose sustainable options

Earlier this year, we launched our SustainABLE Procurement Programme. Our website now highlights our more sustainable product options which help anyone who is looking for office supplies, to discover eco products more easily.

We have curated, from our 20,000-item catalogue, a list of 3,000 products which contain either recycled content above 50%, environmental certification from 3rd party organisations such as the Rainforest Alliance, or have a certified ethical supply chain where the company is a member of an Ethical Trading initiative, through membership of SMETA, or is registered Fairtrade. These products are signposted with the below icons, which makes it super simple for you to make sustainable, well-informed decisions about the products you buy.

Help you with your carbon footprint and net zero journey

At Recorra, we are committed to becoming a net zero business by 2030, outlined by our SustainABLE Pathway. A key part of this is doing things which help you on your own journey. In partnership with Zedify, we now make most of our Office Supplies deliveries within London via cargo bike. The benefits to you are significant; a reduction of CO₂, NO₂, vehicle movements and congestion around your office to name a few! Find out more here.
