Post-it Products go eco-friendly!

Earth Day has come and gone, but the Post-it product company has now made it easier to stay organized with style and sustainability on an everyday basis.

I recently received a (very colorful!)variety of samples from the Post-It Recycled Collection, and I'm loving the fact that I'm now recycling used post-its that are made with a minimum of 30 percent post-consumer content.

I mean, really, how long does a Post-it note stay up where you stuck it? For me, it used to just get tossed in the trash as soon as whatever I was reminding myself to do had been accomplished. But even when I decided to join the environmentally-concsious, I was still recycling a product that wasn't exactly contributing its share to doing some good for the planet.

With that said, it's great to see that Post-its made with recycled paper are now being offered. My thanks go to the Post-it Brand for taking such a major step in truly making every day Earth Day! With SFI (Sustainable Forest Initiative) Chain-of-Custody certification, it's nice to know that the Post-it Brand is now making their products from paper sourced from well-managed forests where trees are replanted, which contributes to the protection of wild habitats and many other initiatives.


Oh, and major berrie sweet bonus points for the vibrant color choices! (Just remember to do your part and continue to recycle your Post-its!)

I put post-its everywhere, wherever I feel I will see them. I put them on my fridge, next to my bed, on my computer screen, on my front door and even on my steering wheel of my car! They are a great tool for reminding me of things. I absolutely love them and always have a pack or two!

Pam said...

I have two favorite places!!

One is on the door that my hubby and children go through to leave in the morning. So I'll stick notes reminding them to take such & such with them so we don't forget things in the morning.

The second is by my hubby's sink. If I remember something I want him to do I stick a post it there to remind him since I know he'll see it first thing each morning.
