I happened to bump into this site last night while i was surfing for something cool, fun and of course 'green' for my post this week. First i actually came across Carolyn Gavin's blog, no doubt it was really cool in itself but for some strange reason i thought it couldn't possibly have much to do with recycling when i see 'Ecojot' mentioned on her blog as 'my website'. I was very happily surprised and glad to have found them - they have some of the most colorful green products i've come across lately.
Ecojot has a beautiful range of Canadian made 100% post-consumer recycled paper products which are perfect for today’s eco savvy user. Mark and Carolyn (brother and sister) work together on developing a range of stationery that is super fresh, fun and green. Their products are theme based ranging from cats and dogs to flowers fishes birds and so many other fun things.
Green meaning, made entirely from waste material. They use acid-free, processed chlorine free paper & board. The inks and glues used are vegetable based hence biodegradable and no trees are used to make their paper. Even their paper mills are powered by biogas harnessed from nearby landfill. Quite wholesome isn't it?

This toronto based company is one of the 7 exhibitors at the upcoming New York International Gift Fair in January to be awarded Sustainability 3 status.
Wait, that's not all that is good about them - there's more... Ecojot supports many great charities that help children, nature, animals and ofcourse the environment. To this end they support Canopy - a non-profit that is dedicated to protecting the world's forest reserves, species and climate by collaboratively engaging the business community and public to create a sustainable and innovative supply chain. Ecojot also donates $1 from the sale of each 'bou' journal to their cause. They have recently also started the 'Buy One, We give One' program to promote literacy in developing countries in partnership with Jane Goodall Institute.
