I love Post-It notes, so I was excited when I was given the opportunity to review a new range released by 3M that are made from at least 30% post-consumer recycled paper. As part of their commitment to social responsibility, 3M has recently achieved the Sustainable Foresty Initiative Chain-of-Custody Certification for all Post-It Notes that ship out of 3M facilities in the US. What this means in plain English is that you can be assured that all of their Post-It products are made from paper that is sourced from well-managed, sustainable forests.
Even more exciting is that they have developed a range made from recycled paper. Their original style Post-It now comes in a recycled version made from 100% recycled paper. These are just as nice to write on as the original, non-recycled paper version, and although they have some small flecks throughout the paper, this does not diminish from the product at all. These come in the original canary yellow and assorted pastel colours.
I also received two products from their Super-Sticky range. I have never tried these ones before, and I am impressed! They really are super sticky which is really useful with the lined 4×6 pads that I tried. These would be great for all sorts of things around the house as they stick to almost any surface, even vertically, without falling off; a great idea is to write a list of what needs to be done regarding cleaning of your child’s room. Post it on the wall, and they have a clear list of instructions of what to do when you ask them to clean their room for the fiftieth time! The super sticky range is made from 30% recycled (post consumer) product, which while not as great as 100% is still a great move towards being more sustainable. This range comes in either earthy colours, or vibrant tropical colours.
