More on the way! (High quality recycled writing paper, that is)

It seems that every time you turn around, there is a greater variety of truly green (not merely greenwashed) products and services becoming available. As Martha would say, that’s a good thing. A case in point is the new set of 100% recycled lined writing pads that I stumbled across at Tar-zhe.

The shocker was not the paper’s nice quality, as much as the fact as the manufacturer is the respected New Leaf  Paper company, which for years has been churning out recycled paper products used by ecologically responsible printers and publishers such as Chelsea Green Books, VegNews magazine, and locally, Ecoprint (in Silver Spring).

A three-pad set retails for about $6.99, so it’s not the cheapest eco-product, although if you write in (mechanical) pencil often (and the accompanying eraser), the cost  to use drops dramatically. One nice benefit is that this reasonably thick paper will not fade and yellow, eventually rendering your musings unreadable.

Power to the people, indeed.
