If I had to list 5 things that I could not live without I'm pretty sure that Post-it Notes would be pretty close to the top of that list. Not only am I a complete freak when it comes to organization but I have issues when it comes to remembering things as well. Thankfully I always have a stack of Post-it Notes near by to help me remember all of the important tasks on my daily To-Do list.

When I was asked to review Post-it Recycled Notes I was actually a little surprised to find that they offered an Eco-friendly version of the original. I was however, very impressed by Post-it's Eco-conscious contribution to their line. Since I didn't know too much about their new line of recycled products I did a little research and found some facts about the Post-it Notes Recycled line of products.

  • Post-it Notes are made with paper from well-managed forests where trees are replanted.
  • All Post-it products sold in the United States are made in the United States.
  • Post-it Notes are made from 100% recycled paper with 30% of that being post-consumer waste content.

While I do always try to use recycled paper I get agitated by the poor quality of the majority of it. I prefer my writing surface to be smooth and most of the time recycled paper is not. Naturally I was curious to see if the recycled Post-it Notes were of the same quality as the original Post-it Notes...I was not disappointed. I could tell no difference between the texture of the recycled notes and the original, the notes had a smooth texture that was easy to write on and not at all coarse like some recycled paper. Not only was the quality of the Post-it Notes exceptional they also come in amazing rich colors made to resemble the colors of nature. I was actually very impressed and also very glad to know that I could enjoy the Post-it's that I love and use regularly and not feel guilty using a product that isn't Eco-friendly.

The very kind people at Post-it are offering 3 Misadventures in Baby Raising readers one set each of the Post-it Super Sticky 4"x6" Lined Notes (in assorted pastel colors, 5 pads of 100 sheets each) and the Post-it Super Sticky 3"x3" Note Cube (in assorted tropical colors, 5 pads of 90 sheets each).
