Although you can recycle your tech and most of us are making sure our paper gets sorted into the recyclables, that doesn't mean you can't use a greener product to begin with. We're pretty particular when it comes to paper for print projects, but this new Eco Highlights from HP looks quite promising.

This paper is made from sustainable sources and although it doesn't go all out by being made from previously recycled goods, we like knowing we're doing our part, even if the act seems quite small.

It's hard to be 100% green in your home office paper usage since the finished product of paper made from all previously recycled materials doesn't always have the desired texture or feel to the paper. Instead of sacrificing quality, we like the simple act of knowing this paper comes from a sustainable source and was made with care. Plus, you know, there's that whole Donald Duck thing going on and who can say no to a duck without pants?

HP has a whole site devoted to their eco-friendly movement where you'll find tips, tricks, print outs and resources for your home and business. We found our HP Eco Highlights paper at our local Microcenter for just under $15!
