Recycling your office’s paper is a great idea, but with all the energy and chemicals required, it can feel almost futile. There is a better way, and it skips right over the middle man. Welcome to The PaperTrail, a community outreach program that turns your recycling bin into art supplies for downtown daycares. I founded the program in April 2009 after becoming frustrated by how much perfectly usable paper our company was blue-binning. The community response has been fantastic! We collect the paper during the week and make our deliveries on Friday mornings. From end cuts to pages printed on one side, all is appreciated.

    Can’t wait! I still can’t believe how much paper we stockpile by the end of each week. I would love to get other companies involved too. Thank you so much for taking on the PR!
