Guidelines are incorporated in several sections of the supplier catalog within the Tufts Business to Business marketplace. Additionally, when a requisitioner orders any paper other than recycled, they receive a message that sugarcane paper is the university standard and they are pointed to it.
The Office of Sustainability has also taken steps to encourage recycled paper use through the "Tufts Prints Green" Initiative. Successes of this campaign include:
-All office and library multi-function copy machines have 2-sided copies as their default setting.
-Publications and Purchasing have found cost-effective recycled stocks for a range of print products from brochures to booklets.
-All Tufts stationary and envelopes ordered through Staples and Printing Services is now 30% post consumer waste and carries the "Tufts Prints Green" word mark to raise awareness of Tufts efforts.
-Tufts Communications prints magazines and other publications on recycled paper with a line stating the details of the recycled content.
With our paper supplier, buyers are automatically directed to sugarcane. They do not have the option to change it.
