Biodegradable office supplies help the environment while they organize

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

I’ve always been organized, but now, in a way, I am helping the environment while I do so. To keep my projects and papers in order and still in “tote-able” form, I recently began to use the biodegradable extra large document case (it’s my favorite new product). And for extra organization, I have biodegradable portfolios and reusable envelopes for further divisions within the carrying case.

New bio products are a finalist for BSA Innovation Award

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Some of C-Line’s biodegradable products – including sheet protectors, project folders and name badge holders – were finalists for the 2009 Business Solutions Association (BSA) Innovation Award. The BSA Innovation Award goes to the company or companies that have the most innovative product, display, promotion, policy or idea.

The award was handed out earlier this month, during the BSA Annual Forum in Florida. Although C-Line did not take home the top prize, it is still an honor to be recognized for our innovative office products and support for the environment.

Because of the award deadline, the newest lineup of biodegradable products from C-Line were not in contention for the award. Maybe next year?!?

Have you been to an event and worn a fancy, highly decorated name badge and thought to yourself, “That must have taken a long time to do”? Or have you wanted to make those for your own event, but didn’t know where to start? C-Line is one step ahead with their printer template gallery.

Expanding Files and Project Folders lead the way in employee popularity

Welcome to the newest series of blogs – My Favorite Product. Every month, you’ll find out the favorite products from the people who know them best, the C-Line employees. I know I’ve told you all about my favorite C-Line travel product, the newest “it” office accessory, or how sheet protectors with hook and loop flaps are your best friend at meetings. But ever wonder what other people use their products for? Well, wonder no more….

The first person up is Judi Krumwiede, Vice President of Employee and Customer Relations. Unfortunately, she could not pick just one product, so she divided her two favorite items into categories – at the office and at home.

Biodegradable and recycled office supplies from C-Line

Environmentally Friendly Office SuppliesC-Line makes it easier to protect
the environment with their line of biodegradable and recycled products.

Amid the world’s growing concern for our planet’s preservation, C-Line has begun to develop office products that can be a benefit to the environment.

For many years the company has included recycled sheet protectors and recycled project folders in their product line, made from at least 70% pre-consumer recycled content.

Last year, C-Line became the first manufacturer to introduce biodegradable sheet protectors and biodegradable project folders to the industry. You may thinking, what exactly makes a plastic holder biodegradable? Well, biodegradable products must be “capable of decomposing under natural conditions”, according to the EPA. The products are made from polypropylene which contains an additional additive that allows it to biodegrade when tested according to the ASTM D5511. ASTM testing indicates this product will biodegrade in two to five years when buried in an anaerobic landfill. Because of the wide variation in landfill systems, actual timing may vary.

The company has just introduced a name badge holder that is biodegradable, recyclable and compostable to complement the other C-Line biodegradable and recycled office products in the product offering. And as an added benefit, the biodegradable name badge holder does not require pins, string or lanyards. The top portion is notched in a special way, that allows the holder to slip over any shirt button and hang from there. 

Happy Earth Day!

C-Line Celebrates 60 Years, 1949 - 2009
