Sharing a pair of scissors in the office can spread unwanted germs from your hands with your workers. To minimize this you may want to consider Westcott’s KleenEarth recycled scissors. They have  lightweight stainless steel blades and handles made from 20% recycled plastic and packaging made with 80% post-consumer content. The handles are infused with Antimicrobial protection to inhibit the growth of bacterial odours. Office products such as scissors, paper trimmers, etc. can be breeding grounds for microbes. Antimicrobial product protection helps keep these products cleaner


There are  four major types of germs – bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. They can invade plants, animals, and people, and sometimes they can make us sick. The most common office germ spread by hands are the Influenza (also called “the flu”).
