Office supplies and stationery products are probably not something you think of when switching to eco-friendly products.
In recent years, plastic has become the main topic of discussion surrounding sustainability, while paper doesn’t seem to be as relevant anymore.
Although the paper industry has improved its practices significantly, with many companies planting several trees for each one it cuts down, its still important to make sure that your paper products come from sustainable sources.
Purchasing recycled paper products is one of the easiest ways to reduce the amount of trees that are cut down to manufacture these products.
These Etsy shops create sustainable stationery products that you can feel confident buying.
