My top tips for zero waste home office would be cutting out junk mail. Junk mail is a waste of our time and our resources. Junk mail is sent straight from the mailbox into the recycling. There are a lot of different ways for cutting out junk mail. There are different websites that take care of that. There is a pre-opt out screen. There is catalogchoice.org or fortyonepouds.org; different companies like that really take care of tackling it. There is more information about that on my blog. The other tip would be to compost if you can, the shredded paper. Shredded paper is not recyclable and actually drives the recycling facilities crazy because it's very volatile. It's better to compost it or use it as padding in your boxes.
