Welcome to Sarah, who's trying out for a spot on our editorial team. Enjoy!

Our office space – whether at-home, in a cubicle or at a desk – is a reflection of who we are. There is no better time than the present to get re-organized and refresh your space with a little color while adding function. Below is a roundup of some essential items to add a bold punch to your space while helping you get off to an eco-friendly, fresh start.

1 4x11" Dry-Erase Magnet Board, $10.00+ from three by three: instead of going through stacks of paper or countless sticky notes, use a dry erase board to keep track of all your latest to-dos. Doubling as a magnetic board, post a few of your family photos to add that personal touch to your work space.
2 Reclaimed Teak Modular Storage Cubes, price unknown from Clayton Oxford: using leftover teak strips from manufacturing facilities, these storage cubes allow you to easily organize your desktop and minimize clutter. Stack them however you like to customize your space and best fit your organizational needs.
3 Bigso Blossom Stockholm Pencil Cup, $5.99 from The Container Store: no desk space is complete without a pencil holder. Keep your pens, pencils and markers in one place with this whimsical 70% post-consumer recycled fiberboard holder.
4 Eco Staple Free Stapler, $10.00 from Urban Outfitters: this staple-free stapler allows you to easily bind pages without the need for wasteful staples. Available in two vibrant colors, keep it on your desk; your co-workers are sure to want one of their own.
5 simplehuman Deluxe Rectangular Recycler Can, $179.99 from Bed Bath and Beyond: we are bound to end up with loads of paper headed for the trash can. Instead of throwing it away, this attractive, compact bin allows you to separate trash from recyclables like paper.

Thanks, Sarah!
