Studying is an essential part of college life. You probably find yourself using tons of paper, pens, and post-it notes! But what do the materials you use say about their relationship to the earth? Products that are sustainably made from recyclable, non-toxic, and eco-friendly materials will give Mama Nature some breathing room. Need to print out a term paper? Grab the 100% post-consumer recycled printer paper, pop in the recycled ink cartridge and print away (two-sided, or course)! Better yet, take your eco-studying to the next level and go paperless! Type your notes into computer apps like Evernote to stay organized. Talk to your school store purchaser and student centers about using post consumer recycled paper, notebooks, journals and other eco-friendly items. When your study habits become a model of change for your peers and campus leaders, there’s no telling what can be accomplished!
