What if you changed out one item your business uses regularly for a sustainable version?
For example, here is a sugarcane fiber clamshell, an improvement on a styrofoam clamshell.
If you are sending your waste to be recycled, but you are not looking for recycled content in the products that you buy, then, in theory, you are not completing a cycle, and are not truly recycling.
Find recycled content products with the following directories:
Recycled-Content Building Products--This section of the Recycled Content Product Directory lists manufacturers of recycled-content building products.
Recycled-Content Product Manufacturers (RCPM)--May include products of any business in any country that manufactures or produces with recycled material. This directory is intended to be used by all types of buyers: government, business, and consumers.
RecycleStore--This database lists only products of businesses that are located in one of California's Recycling Market Development Zones (RMDZ). The RecycleStore is targeted at consumers.
