Eco Action Day is coming again

We first participated in the first edition of Eco Action Day back in 2007. Time sure flies, before you know it, it’s already 2010.

This year’s Eco Action Day will be held on 4th June.

There is a handy table on their website, which shows the total amount of electricity saved for the past three years. Unfortunately there is a slight dip in 2009, but I’m sure we will be able to reverse the trend this year.

Awareness about our impact on the environment has become mainstream, and it’s no longer a fad.

So go get your colleagues to join in, and together, we can make a difference.

Check out the Eco Action Day website today!


Thanks, Ricoh

Do you remember Eco Action Day event that I blogged about a few weeks back? Ricoh was the supporting organisation. The Eco Action Day post-action ceremony was held last Friday but unfortunately I couldn’t make it.

To my pleasant surprise, I got a phone call from Ricoh saying that we’ve won a lucky draw prize. Assuming it was some small commemorative item, I popped down over to their Heeren office on Monday.

Ms Masayo Hada, a very nice lady, greeted me there. The prize turned out to be a business colour printer (a very welcome addition to the office), along with other small goodies:

Ricoh freebies

1 colour printer, 2 folders, notepads, staplers, and LOADS of pens.

Ricoh stapleless stapler

I was most intrigued by this little gadget. At first I thought it was some sort of hole-puncher, but testing it on recycled paper yielded the following result:

stapleless stapled

ah-ha! It’s a staple-less stapler. The flap created holds pieces of paper together without the need for consumable metal staples.

It’s a clever idea but I don’t think external organisations would appreciate this as it is not as sturdy as normal staples. Would try using it in the office though. :)

Thanks, Ricoh!
