Green Office: Sustainable Earth Products from Staples
It is nice to see more and more eco-friendly options at traditional stores, especially office supplies. I still remember when I was in college having to go to a special store just to buy recycled ruled paper, and it was a heavy grey color.
As part of a their Sustainable Earth line, Staples offers many green products. We were sent the following:
Sustainable Earth by Staples™ SE-230E 8-Digit Display ECO Calculator:
Of course, solar calculators aren't exactly hard to find, but this one's casing is made from recycled ink and toner cartridges.
Sustainable Earth by Staples® All-Purpose Cleaner:

- This product has been formulated in partnership with EPA Design for the Environment Formulator Initiative
- This product meets the Green SealTM environmental standard for household cleaners based on its reduced toxicity, biodegradability, packaging, and other characteristics
Casing is 100% Bamboo, a renewable resource
Sustainable Earth by Staples™ #10 Gummed 100% Recycled Envelopes
Sustainable Earth by Staples® Wirebound Notebook

My favorite product is the notebook. I love that it also has pockets inside.
Many schools and offices are limited as to where they can purchase supplies. I am thankful that more green options are available from suppliers that accept purchase orders.
