Stop Illness from Spreading in the Office with Benjamin’s Favorite Antimicrobial Office Supplies


Covid 19. The flu. Colds. Allergies…Ewww. No matter what time of year, it seems like there’s always something going around that brings germs into the office. In such a fishbowl environment, coworkers need to stay on their toes to prevent the spread of illness.

Okay, we know what you’re thinking:

What more can we possibly do to stop germs in the office?!

The answer: Use antimicrobial office supplies!


What’s the Difference Between Normal Office Supplies and Antimicrobial Office Supplies?

With normal office supplies, each time a person uses something, like a stapler or pen, germs are transferred from the hand to the piece. That stapler now becomes a breeding ground for those germs. The next person who touches it now has all those yucky microorganisms on their hand. If they then touch their face…it’s game over.

Antimicrobial office supplies are simply office supplies with germ-fighting coating. This coating prevents the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms, so you can use office supplies cleanly. Yup, it’s that simple: you can slow and inhibit the spread of germs just by switching up your office supplies.
