Be Part of the Solution! Fifty Green reduces the environmental cost of ordering.
As a global company Staples Professional takes our social responsibility and the environment seriously. We believe that we have a responsibility larger than profit maximization and job creation – to minimize the negative effects of our operations and strive to impact positively on the environment. Order delivery is a significant source of the environmental impact of our operations, releasing, among other toxic chemicals, Nitrogen Dioxide. Our Fifty Green program encourages you, our customers, to help reduce the impact on the environment by reducing the number of deliveries to your location through combining orders that in turn improves our operational efficiencies. This allows for better service and competitive prices for you, while also reducing packaging and toxic gas emissions, so it is beneficial for the environment.
We have two options to assist our customers in reducing their environmental impact.
1) The Fifty Green Charge will encourage you to combine your orders. Should your order remain less than $50 we will add a charge of $5.99 to the order. A portion of the order charge will be donated to Tree Canada to help plant trees in local communities across Canada to offset the environmental impact. Each fee collected helps buy a tree. The benefits include the ability to continue to create orders less than $50 with the assurance that the impact of small orders is being reduced.
2) Fifty Green Accelerator encourages you to combine your orders to reach a minimum of $50. Should your order remain less than $50 we will save the order to allow you time to determine additional items you would like to purchase. You can use www.eway.ca at any time to complete your selections, alternatively you can contact our customer care department or we will be happy to follow up with you. The benefits of this program include no additional delivery charges and ecologically sound purchasing practices.
What does it mean for you? Regardless of how you participate in Fifty Green, if your order size is above $50, there is no impact to you – you will continue to receive all of the great products that you have come to expect from Staples Professional. You will also have the knowledge that you have played an active role in helping us reduce our operational costs, to maintain competitive pricing AND reduced the impact on the environment. Additional delivery charges, order minimums, or handling charges may apply for deliveries outside local areas and for select products.
