I’ve always been a huge advocate for recyclable materials. There’s just something truly satisfying about knowing that my newspapers and old coupon inserts are going to be transformed into something useful again. This is why I’m quite passionate about buying recycled paper goods whenever I can find them…but sometimes I’ve found it hard to feel good about paying the extra cost. Here are some great resources I’ve found to get coupons and deals on the recycled paper and home goods and supplies I love. I hope you find them useful, too!
1. Seventh Generation
One of the best things about Seventh Generation is that they are in most of the grocery stores in my area (not just in Whole Foods!). Plus, they offer all kinds of other great cleaning products in addition to their paper goods.
You can sign up to get savings and coupons delivered by email, and also shop their sale page online. Best of all, check out their coupons page for savings and contests (right now you can win FREE diapers for a MONTH!).
