green office

Seems like it has been years (actually, it has been years) since I've needed to buy more paper for my home office. Now that I need to replenish, I can finally patronize a green office supply shop! Of course you can find "green" options at many office supply stores by choosing 100% recycled products.

One thing I like about The Green Office online shop is that they sort the search results by greeness. For instance, I looked for laser paper and found the top-ranked green choice to be 100% Recycled Color Copy Paper from MOHAWK. The search results tell me it has 100% post-consumer content and that it meets EPA procurement guidelines. They also mention that it is produced using wind-power and provide a brightness rating so that I can compare it to other paper sheets.

The site is easy to navigate and I like how they have little icons to help you compare choices (such as recycled content, reduced chemical content, biodegradable or compostable, or third-party certified).

Green Office says, "we help consumers align values with action by providing a full selection of sustainable office products at great prices. Through green purchasing and sustainable practice customers of send a clear signal to the market that real demand exists for positive change. In turn, this signal triggers the innovation of greener products, narrows the price gap between green and conventional products, and furthers adoption by mainstream consumers. We invite you to join us in bringing sustainability to the workplace."

Plus, they have free delivery after $50.00.
