How to Save Paper: Post a Reminder

These come from trees sticker This week’s tips are about how to cut down on paper use – there are many reasons to, perhaps the foremost of which is that much of climate change is caused by deforestation. Also, paper production consumes energy, and thrown-away sheets clog landfills. Here’s what you can do.

Tip #1: Prompt a Good Thought

We know you wouldn’t use more paper towels than you need – but what about everyone else? Engage in some minor guerrilla tactics by ordering a stash of these wonderful stickers, which you can post on paper-towel dispensers in public restrooms, or anywhere else paper products are dispensed, to remind people that, as the sticker says, “These come from trees.” Each of these little pieces of positive propaganda, say its creators, save 100 pounds of paper per year. Plus, they donate their profits to the Sierra Club. Want to start combating mindless napkin-pulling right away? Get creative and make your own reminder signs to post.

Tip #2: Choose Tree-Free Paper

Tip #3: How to Remember Your Reusable Bag

Tip #4: Digitize Your Greetings
