New York (June 2, 2007)- Here’s a neat, cheap tool for encouraging people to conserve paper. Blogger Pete Kazanjy sells packs of stickers that say “Remember, These Come From Trees” — suitable for affixing to paper towel dispensers, napkin holders, and other locations where people tend to over-use paper products.
This simple act helps people remember where products come from and encourages more thoughtful use of resources. Field testing resulted in a 15% decrease in paper towel consumption in locations where volunteers posted a sticker.
Arm your favorite volunteers with stickers or have them buy their own at These Come From Trees.
