Office Supplies

Dalhousie currently has a purchasing agreement with Staples Advantage.

Look for the EcoEasy logo to identify products which meet Staples’ “eco-conscious” criteria:

  • 30% post-consumer recycled content, or more.
  • 500 Internal Server Error

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

  • Other eco-design elements such as biobased plastics, rapidly renewable materials, and agricultural residues (ex. sugarcane by-products).

* As per the Dalhousie Paper Policy [265 - KB], paper purchased by Dalhousie units should be sourced directly from the Dalhousie Print Centre, which stocks 100% post-consumer paper.

Office Supplies Purchasing Tips:

  • Look for products which are durable, long lasting, and refillable;
  • Buy office supplies in bulk to minimize packaging and delivery trips;
  • Minimize the amount of packaging material and that packaging is reused or recycled.
