Office Depot Extends Paper Marketing Test
Office Depot has extended a marketing test of processed chlorine-free paper sales in the Chicago area through the end of April. United Methodist Women members in the Chicago area are encouraged to stop by Office Depot stores to purchase the environmentally friendly paper known as Enviro 100 Copy paper.
When members visit the stores, they are asked to speak to the store manager. They should:
- Explain why they came to the store;
- Thank the manager for carrying the processed chlorine-free paper (PCF);
- Share why the paper is important to the environment and human health;
- Ask if PCF paper is available in the store’s copy center;
- Fill out a comment card; and
- Purchase reams of the Enviro 100 Copy paper for home, church, work and other uses.
Once members have visited the stores and bought the paper, they should tell their friends and co-workers to do the same. One important thing to remember: Store employees often confuse PCF paper with acid-free paper. While acid-free paper is good for archiving purposes it is not related to environmental issues and is not the paper United Methodist Women members are seeking.
