Hello everyone, I hope you are well.
As you know, it’s more important than ever to take care of our planet in every way possible, and a way I like to do that is looking
at different aspects of my home and life to see what eco-friendly changes I can make. Here is what I have come up with for
#1 Eco-friendly stationary:
It goes without saying that genealogy and research in general usually requires a lot of notebooks, paper and pens! Here is what I use:
Notebooks: Since I never throw out my research notebooks, I invest in good quality notebooks that will stand the test
of time and are made by companies who care about safe working conditions, fair pay and low environmental impact
manufacturing. I try to source these notebooks in my own country (Australia).
Notepaper: I frequently use notepads to jot down research notes and lists. I buy notepads that are made with at least
50% recycled paper from our local newsagent (supporting local businesses).
Printing paper: as with notepaper, I try to buy printer/copy paper that is at least 50% recycled.
#2 Pens & Pencils:
I mainly use graphite pencils for note taking, but I recently found some eco-friendly ballpoint pens which I am
enjoying using too.
I also use an antique fountain pen with locally made ink for other projects.
In addition to eco-friendly stationary, I try to store as many files and notes online, however this system is definitely a work in progress! 🙂
I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. Have a lovely day or night wherever you are.
