A healthy office is a happy office. To ensure the health and happiness of your customers, employees, and guests, you should keep your office clean and sanitary. And to maintain office cleanliness, you need the right supplies. Cloths are one cleaning staple that every business should have on hand.

The environment has been a hot topic in recent years, especially with the looming threat of climate change on the horizon. In light of this wave of eco-consciousness, consumers are pressuring businesses to switch to greener processes and materials. But going green is easier said than done. If your business wants to become more environmentally responsible, one area you’ll need to re-examine is your product packaging. Not all packaging materials are good for the environment—in fact, some materials are downright harmful.

Sturdy packaging substantially increases the odds of a package making it from Point A to Point B unharmed. Here's what to consider when packaging your products for shipping to ensure your packages arrive at customers' doorsteps safely.
