A survey has revealed that many workers who recycle ink or toner cartridges as part of being green at work would like their company to be more supportive of their efforts.

Commissioned as part of Avery Green Office Week, the survey found that over half of workers in the UK said they would be happier at work if bosses were more supportive of green initiatives.

A total of 41 per cent of office workers admitted to having found themselves in an awkward situation with a boss just for trying to implement green practices in the workplace.

On top of that, 40 per cent revealed that they would go so far as avoiding putting forward greener working initiatives for fear of being accused of 'nagging'.

In what should prove a worry for bosses, 60 per cent of office workers said they are influenced on whether or not to apply for a job on the basis of the company's environmental credentials.
