Since today is Earth Day I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to introduce myself and post my praise about how GREEN Amy Adele strives to be. My name is Whitney and I am the Customer Care Manager at Amy Adele. You've probably heard the phrase, "Earth Day is Everyday." It certainly rings true here. Coming from a 5-year-stint at an environmental non-profit, being green runs through my veins. Upon coming on board here I was so totally (and pleasantly) surprised that a stationery company takes such great efforts at reducing waste. Here are a couple of ways that Amy Adele makes Earth Day everyday at our headquarters:
- Every paper product on AmyAdele.com is printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper! The paper is: Acid free & processed chlorine free, made with 100% certified renewable energy, and procured through responsible use of forest resources. According to the EIA, making a ton of paper from recycled stock saves up to 17 trees and uses 50 percent less water!
- Our packaging peanuts are made with cornstarch. They're bio-degradable and FDA approved. We have actually had customers write us and tell us how much fun they (and their children too) had "playing" with the peanuts and running water-they totally dissolve before your very eyes. Coooool.
