Switch To Recycled  

Your choice of Australian made recycled paper matters. Switch to Planet Ark Paper which is 100% recycled!

And while you're at it...

Once you’ve got your paper recycling in hand make sure you’re recycling your printer cartridges.  If your school uses more than three cartridges a month you may be eligible to receive a free ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ collection box.  If you don’t use that many you can drop your used cartridges off at participating retail collection points. Visit Cartridges.PlanetArk.org for more information.
