FUSE FUNCTION AND STYLE WITH SUSTAINABILITY
Fun, Eco-Smart Options for Effective Communication
Communicating and organizing just got more sustainable! The Post-it Notes & Easel products that you love and have come to rely upon for fast and effective communication are now SFI® (Sustainable Forestry Initiative®) Chain-of-Custody Certified, which assures that the paper used to make these products is sourced from well managed forests where trees are replanted.
Post-it® Notes are also available in recycled materials. Choose from a diverse array of styles featuring earthy color palettes of soothing Nature’s Hues or vibrant Tropical Colors. Post-it Recycled Notes are an easy way to help minimize your environmental impact without sacrificing quality or changing your routine.
Pairing the design sensibilities of the Post-it brand with environmental consciousness, the Post-it Recycled Collection includes products that contain a minimum of 30 percent post-consumer content. The collection is available in both Original Notes and Super Sticky varieties. This continues the Post-it brand’s commitment to a sustainable world, as all Post-it Notes have been and are recyclable in your regular paper waste stream. As an eco-smart option, Post-it Recycled Notes offer communication solutions and ideas that “stick” in the home and office.
The recycled family of products supplements sustainable initiatives adopted by the Post-it brand, including attainment of certification from the SFI program for paper used in the U.S. manufacturing of all Post-it Notes and Post-it Easel products. Such certification ensures proactive alignment of responsible procurement objectives with high standards of forest management to promote sustainability. Backed by a rigorous, third-party audit, the SFI program’s commitment to well managed forests includes measures to protect biodiversity, wildlife habitat, and forests with exceptional conservation value, among other initiatives.
“Demand for products from well managed third party certified forests is increasing worldwide and with today’s announcement, the Post-it brand joins a growing number of companies that are demonstrating their environmental commitment through certification to the SFI program,” said SFI Inc. President and CEO Kathy Abusow. “At a time when just 10 percent of the world’s forests are independently certified, the Post-it brand has taken a leadership role by supporting global efforts to improve forest practices.”
“We strive to continually improve our performance and offer consumers a portfolio of products that address their everyday needs and can help satisfy overall environmental concerns,” said Jack Truong, vice president and general manager, 3M Office Supplies Division. “The Post-it Brand Recycled Collection enables us to build upon this dedication to sustainable development by providing consumers with an eco-smart approach to fast, friendly communication.”
Building on a wide portfolio of products that make the art of communication easier, the Post-it brand has integrated sustainability efforts into a variety of categories including its recycled, super sticky, pop-up, and easel pad product lines. This embodies 3M Company’s longstanding commitment to develop products that make people’s lives easier and better, both for today and future generations.
Post-it products are sold nationally at office superstores and mass merchandise retailers. Suggested retail prices for the Post-it Recycled Collection range from $1.65 - $6.00 (except cabinet packs and easel pads).
