Green EventsWith the Back To School rush officially behind us, Autumn has finally arrived, and with it the usual host of environmental conferences and meetups.

Fall is traditionally one of the busiest seasons for green workshops and gatherings, and this year is no exception. We've taken a look at the next month's worth of event listings and pared it down to what we feel are the "can't miss" green conferences and gatherings of the next few weeks.

This Month's Featured Products
Strathmore 100% Recycled StationeryWhen you need something a little more formal than our tried and true Aspen 100 Office Paper, we recommend the Strathmore Script 100% Recycled Business Stationery. Not only is it Forest Stewardship Council and Green Seal Certified, it's actually manufactured using clean, renewable wind energy. Twenty-four pounds, watermarked for quality, and guaranteed to work in both inkjet and laser printers.

The Envirotech Dual Purpose Legal Pad is one of the cooler office product innovations we've seen. On the surface, it's a standard, ruled, 8.5"x11" legal pad. But flip a page over and tear it out along its microperforated top stub, and you suddenly have a sheet of single-sided, on-demand printer paper, made from 100% post-consumer recycled material. A highly evolved product for today's highly evolved office.

Finally, our KleenEarth Recycled Stainless Steel Scissors are among the finest shears currently out there. Stainless steel blades are sonically welded to 70% recycled plastic handles, and the whole package is backed with a manufacturer's ten year warranty. We're going to sidestep the obvious pun about "cutting" pollution and let the product speak for itself.
