Standing in front of an aisle dedicated to printer paper, I asked my daughter which printer paper we should buy. I read all our options: premium, copy, multi-purpose, laser jet, inkjet.
And she asked, “Is there recycled paper?”
A huge smile appeared on my face (and my heart grew three times larger – oh wait, that’s another story).
We searched for recycled printer paper. It wasn’t front and center, but it was available. Envirocopy™ paper. The price? 5.99 for 500 sheets, or one dollar less than the multi-purpose paper.
Wait a second! I thought I had to pay more for green products? Or do I?
What do you think? Is green expensive?
Or course the greenest choice is no paper (not buying new products), but no paper is a tough sell with school age children. If you’re interested in green frugality, check out these great blogs:
And of course this one. :)
