Recycled Paper Green

A short and sweet tidbit from Our Daily Green for the weekend. Do you know a simple way to tell if cardboard is from recycled paper? It's grey or tan. If it's white cardboard, it's usually from virgin pulp. Paper fibers can be recycled  several times, so save your cardboard packages the same way you save newspaper.

If your community does not accept cardboard through curbside recycling, it's easy to find a drop off location via Earth911's site. You probably drive by it and don't even realize it. So today's easy tips are to first look for brown or tan cardboard for packages (not white) and second save your cardboard to recycle.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
