http://www.treecycle.com         From their website:   Don't be fooled

Don't be fooled -
Most recycled paper products on the market labeled "RECYCLED" contain little or no post-consumer waste(PCW) paper, only wood chips and mill scraps. These "RECYCLED" paper products do little to address the environmental concerns of deforestation and landfills full of potentially reusable waste paper. Paper products made with PCW is the positive choice.
For recycling to work -
There must be demand for the products made from recycled materials - studies point to "lack of demand" as a major factor hampering efforts to recycle waste paper. Treecycle's motto is "the other half of recycling" because recycling is a loop. We specialize in paper products with the highest quantity of recycled paper and post-consumer waste paper available.

INSPIRATION

Books that have helped me on my Green Journey 

My GREEN journey began as a series of little changes along the way...much easier than making the big switch all at once.   I am not a scientist....I have no environmental credentials...As I stated in the About Us section....I am just a GREEN GRANDMOTHER who has done extensive research on ways to connect children to Mother Earth and find ways to protect our natural resources for future generations.  My suggestions are based on the information and products that I have found useful, interesting or exciting...books that have inspired me for years and new titles that I discover to share and organizations that speak to my heart with their mission and purpose.
    
Personal testimonies are more valuable than commercials and we invite you to share your ideas at justagreengrandmother.blogspot,com.   Changing to all organic products takes time and the price point can often be a deal breaker.  Finding ways to save the planet and save money at the same time is one of our objectives.
