The Green Office

It may not be a Staples or Office Max but your one stop green office supply shop is right here! The Green Officeis so serious about being green they even amended their articles of incorporation to included sustainable practices. That is definitely some serious green business! I always say it that it is our duty as respectable greenies to patronize green businesses and if  The Green Officeis willing to offer us this great opportunity to make our offices even greener we should take advantage. You can purchase supplies, paper, ink & toner, break room amenities, furniture and janitorial supplies all in one place. Also $50 free shipping! I hope to see The Green Officebe a contender to the likes of Staples and Office Max that offer some green alternatives to stay in the loop but have no where near the green assortment that The Green Office offers. - Green products. Great prices. – Green Products, Great Prices! Story:

2011 Coil Bound Plantable Eco Calendar

Plantable Coil Bound-Calendar

Plantable Coil Bound-Calendar

I am in love with plantable products. Seed paper just makes me excited. The act of being able to make something out of a product you usually would throw out just excites me beyond the usual ideas of reusing or recycling products we purchase. I hate throwing anything away especially if it can go to an alternative use. The 2011 eco-calendar from EcoHip is an excellent way to brighten up your home or office. The decorative floral pages remind you of how amazing the eco-calendar can be once it is planted and you can actually see your calendar come alive. When the year is finished you can plant the eco-calendar near or in your yard or balcony to brighten up your area. This could be an incredible school project or community project if enough people purchase an eco-calendar. I hope to see in the future more plantable products that we take for granted and give up at the end of their “life-cycle”.

Product Description:

The 2011 eco calendarfeatures 12 fresh-from-the press designs printed double-sided on 6 sheets of plantable seed paper. These fabulous floral motifs will help you brighten your desk year-round. Each page measures 5″ x 5″. 100% recyclable and 100% post consumer waste!

To plant the paper:

◦Prepare a pot of soil or small patch of garden
◦Place plantable paper on top and cover with a thin layer of soil
◦Water well and give plenty of sunshine
◦Keep moist during germination
◦Enjoy the flowers that grow from plantable, seeded favors, invitations and paper
As the plants grow right out of the paper, look for flowers like Bird’s Eye, Clarkia, Black Eyed Susan, Poppy, Catchfly and Snap Dragon.

Eco-Friendly Office Chair

Eco-Friendly Office Chair

Eco-Friendly Office Chair

I don’t know how many of you sit in an office all day but I know I do and I always wonder what other choices of seating we could have that might be better than what we are currently sitting on. I know the cushy faux leather or cloth monstrosities always look uber comfy but maybe we could do better than that. After all after a short amount of time these chairs get worn and thrown out to go where? In a landfill? I wonder how long it would take to break down considering they are mostly metal and man-made materials? Where do these large clunky chairs go when they are old and worn?
To answer my queries I found a sort of solution! HON – 7800 Series High-Back Executive Chair is made from 36% recycled content.  HON also makes a simpler less comfy looking chair that is 64% recycled content! Now that you know maybe you could talk your boss into purchasing alternatives now!

Product Description:
*Scientific Certification System’s Sustainable Choice. 36% Total Recycled Content
*Wave-formed seat cushion distributes weight across a broader surface area.
*Lumbar support applies consistent, gentle pressure to the lower back, encouraging a proper curve.
*Upholstery contains stain-resistant protection to maintain a clean appearance.
*Casters supplied with this chair are not suitable for all floor types.

Wooden Stapler

Wooden Stapler

I found this while looking for some random craft stuff and I couldn’t resisit posting this! This wooden stapler isn’t any great big new idea but it is cute! I like how simple the stapler is and better yet how you can decorate it any way you choose! You can leave it plain or make it your own! When you are finished with it you can totally recycle it! What this stapler doesn’t have is FSC certification or even tell you what kind of wood it is. If the product had a little more description I would say it would be a necessity to every greenie however until I find where it’s made and what it is made from I will have to keep searching for a more eco friendly product. If you have seen any please let me know! I would love to write about it!
