Big box office supply stores are often unavoidable for working people, but if you’ve ever wondered about the most environmentally friendly places to get your next notebook, you now have an answer. The Asheville-based Dogwood Alliance recently dished out some green grades to five main office supply retailers. The highest mark of B+ was given to Staples and FedEx Kinkos, while the low end of D+ went to OfficeMax. High marks were given to FedEx Kinkos for ambitious goals for Post Consumer and Recycled Content and being the first company to express a preference for Forest Stewardship Council certification, while Staples was lauded for its work toward protection of endangered forest—the main area of downfall for OfficeMax, who according to the report has continued sourcing from the South.
