ECO-FRIENDLY OFFICE SUPPLIES
Office supply companies are starting to offer eco-friendly products that are not only green, but also innovative and well-designed. Since most of us spend more waking hours in our office than we do in our home, we're constantly looking for products to update our workspace without adding to our ecological footprint.
Whether you’re taking your company green, updating a shared workspace or decorating your home office, here are some of our favorite eco-friendly office supplies to add to your collection . . . and, of course, RE.BIN made the top of our list.
