I like, I’ve always like nice stationery. As I was younger, I always had nice writing paper. But as I don’t write any letters at all (such a shame) I write to myself!
I mean I take notes on lovely notebooks I always carry in my bag or which lie around on my desk. Among them I use one from Papier Tigre to note my ideas and inspirations for the blog: their products are manufactured in France; they are made out of recycled paper. Their graphic design will make you start a collection!
Over the past years, I used to offer books as I liked the idea of a gift meaning low impact on the environment. I naively thought that all paper products were manufactured and printed in France. MISTAKE!!! For example, all the books I bought for my daughters were printed in China. This means a huge carbon footprint.
So now I always check it and choose the lowest solution if I have the choice.
