It's a question that has no single answer because every product has an environmental impact.
To the environmental purist, no product is truly green because as soon as a manufacturing process begins, there is an environmental impact. At Office Depot, the belief is to find a proper balance.
Office Depot also believes that there are "shades of green" and products on the buygreen site could be considered just green, light green, or dark green, depending on their environmental benefits relative to other products in their category. For the launch of the buygreen site, products were selected with one or more of the following environmental benefits relative to other products in the category:
Reduced chemical use
Office Depot continues to encourage small steps towards greener offices around the world. If that means encouraging customers to convert from virgin paper (i.e. with no recycled content) to paper containing 10% post-consumer recycled content, then that would qualify as a choice to "buy green."
