>FYI: Staples now carries Living Tree "tree-free"
>paper--it's 90% POST-consumer recycled content
>and 10% hemp-flax...meaning there is no virgin
>wood material.   It's 24 pound weight; 91
>brightness rating (bright white); acid-free;
>process chlorine free.  It's regularly $7/ream
>but on SALE THIS WEEK FOR $3.90/ream  (basically
>the same price as regular paper).
>This is a great way to personally reduce your
>tree consumption and it's a vote of support to
>Staples--which will be important to get them to
>keep carrying "enviro friendly" goods.  Your
>regular purchases of tree-free paper will
>protect our forests, which are critical sinks
>that absorb carbon and help control global
>warming.  In addition, there is less chemical
>processing (versus regular paper), avoiding
>significant emissions of air and water
>Also, this week, turn in a used inkjet printer
>cartridge to Staples and get a free ream of 10-
>30% recycled paper. Another great move by
>Staples that deserves our business.
