Guest Blog: Office Eco-Post by Katya the intern

Katya the Intern again with part 2 of my Eco-home tips & tutorials series (here’s part 1). I will be adding new posts to this series about every 2 weeks, all summer long!

Lately, I’ve been cleaning out things and revamping my desk/craft area. It helps to create a much more pleasant working experience when everything is organized. Plus, you can recycle all the junk you find in the back of your desk drawers (you know you have some!) Good for the Earth, good for your organizational sanity.

Another bonus is that rather then paying for all new notepads and desk organizers, you can dig around your house and find plenty of things to use to herd your pens, pencils and papers. By using the ‘trash’ around your house, you are helping to keep our landfills a little emptier, your wallet a little fuller and your life a little more organized.

I’ve put together a few tips, tutorials and finds to get you started on the process. Everything here is meant either to tidy up or cute up your workspace.
