Paperboard Boxes
Lightweight cardboard boxes such as cereal, cracker, and shoe boxes are often made from recycled paper. Read the label.
Plastic Bottles & Jugs
Some household cleaners, dishwashing liquids, shampoos, and other products can be found in plastic bottles with 25% or higher post-consumer recycled content. Check the label.
Bath & Facial Tissue
Toilet paper and facial tissue made from recycled paper meet consumer expectations and cost about the same as--or less than--their non-recycled counterparts.
Paper Towels
Paper towels with recycled content are competitive in price and performance. But don't forget you can use a sponge or rag to do the same job!
Writing Paper & Envelopes
Top-quality recycled paper, envelopes, and greeting cards are increasingly easy to find. Some "designer" recycled stationery is meant to look rough and unfinished, but most recycled paper looks just like the paper made directly from trees. Check the label for post-consumer recycled content. (And don't forget to ask for recycled paper if you order printing or copying.)
...And Many More
