A few of us envisionites thought it would be a good idea to make our company more environmentally responsible (because greener = awesomer). Our recycled notepads are one of the ways we are reaching this goal! Instead of tossing out all the paper we inevitably go through during a day of work, we keep it, cut it to size, and assemble it into notepads. This is a great project & practice because we save money by needing to buy less notepads, and we get more out of the paper that we already purchased.
It’s actually really easy and pretty quick to do. If you are interested in trying this out at your office, check out this downloadable PDF for notepad-making instructions. You’ll also need to pick up your padding compound (the glue that you’ll need); one bottle will seriously last you forever.
Stay tuned for more ecoco (short for “eco committee”—aren’t we cute?) updates and follow our efforts to be greener!
