I’m loving the Staples Eco-friendly line of notebooks and other office accessories that we were sent to review. To be honest, I don’t get a chance to visit Staples all that much, I should go more often, so I had heard a little about the Eco-friendly line but had never had a chance to view them up close.
The notebook and paper are made from 80% sugarcane plant fiber waste, after the sugarcane is processed and crushed to make sugar, the waste is converted into paper. They are also printed with eco-preferable vegetable and water based inks. The notebooks come in two sizes,9½” x 6 “ and 8½” x 11”.
The Sustainable Earth collection offers more than just notebook and paper though, it consists of calculators, folders, colorful clipboards and even a stapler as well as other office essentials.
The stapler and calculators are interesting how they are made. The stapler is actually made from 100% recycled casing made from ink and toner cartridges and the solar powered calculator is made from recycled ink and toner cartridges, which are comprised in part from what Staples collects from its customers as part of its Staples Rewards program.
Staples has incorporated a wide assortment of products with environmental benefits to their products. From recycled desk accessories and third-party certified technology to Eco-conscious cleaning supplies and compostable cups, they seem to have green choices for every part of your office.
Also, don’t forget that you can recycle your empty ink and toner cartridges at your local Staples store and get $2 back in Staples Rewards® for each one. So not only will you save money on future purchases, but you can also feel good about reducing waste in our landfills. Remember, those recycled ink and toner cartridges are what help made the staplers, calculators and other products.
