What does paper shredding do for the environment? 

Secure document destruction through on-site shredding keeps your private customer and business information safe.

It might sound cliché but companies which care about the planet will encourage their customers to look after the environment too. Show your customers that you are willing to act and do something about it, and dispose of your waste in an environmentally friendly way.
