Earth Update: Double Sides/ "Me" Update

Hello readers and before I give you my Earth Update, I'd like to apologize for the lack of posts this month. Don't fret, I'm still here just super-duper... swamped with life. I have 2 collections that I'm almost done swatching, hint: essie and orly!!! So stay tuned for them, I'll get them up ASAP for you guys!

Now back to the Earth Update:

How often is it that you see a super cool picture or article on the internet and you just have to print out? In all likelihood that is more than one page and after you are done looking at it or reading it, you put this article straight into the trash. There are a few things that you can do to make this process a bit more eco-friendly. One is, recycle it! But two, my main point, is to print using both sides of the paper when possible. This is both eco- friendly and convenient; you have no need to search for a paperclip/stapler and you are using half the amount of trees!! Even more, this will save you money since you won't have to purchase as much paper.

Thanks everyone, and have a fabulously "earthy" day!!


  1. My SO hates when I send paper through the printer again to print on the other side. He says it stresses out the paper tray and the printer's mechanics. He says the wear & tear on the printer is environmentally worse than only printing on only one side. I print double-sided anyway but I wonder if his rationale has any merit.

  2. Justine- Hm, I'm not so sure. If he keeps pestering you about this, you may want to look into some other ways to be green, we don't want to upset anyone here :)
