If your business is considering shredding with Embassy Records Management and Storage, this post is for you! We're going to touch on some of the benefits of keeping your business secure through shredding with Embassy RMS!
As a customer of Embassy, you will be increasing efficiency in the office, saving space by getting rid of old documents, and improving security by not leaving confidential documents lying around. Not only are you benefiting your business, you are also benefitting the environment when you shred with us!
Embassy RMS recognizes the part paper plays in our environment, from the forest destruction to overflowing landfills. We are proud that our service lets companies be secure with unwanted documents while also helping the environment. 100% of the paper we shred is recycled, going on to becoming new paper products.
Recycling paper saves more than just trees, as recycling one ton of paper saves up to 17 trees, over 3 cubic yards of space in a landfill, nearly 7,000 gallons of water, 100 gallons of gasoline, 4,000 KW of electricity, and prevents as much as 60 lbs of air pollutants. As yet one more answer to the question of ‘why shred,’ being environmentally conscious helps everyone and is something businesses can successfully promote.
On average, a business that uses only one shred bin and has a monthly service will shred approximately 2640 lbs per year. That's more than 1 ton! An additional service that we offer to businesses is to track how much they are recycling. We will give you regular reports on how much your business has recycled. Some business can get a tax accreditation through this and all businesses can reduce their carbon footprint!
If you or your business are interested in one of our services, give us a call! We would love to talk with you and help you and your business become more secure and economical!
