My apologies if this is the wrong forum for this question!

Every year I buy DH a day planner for work. This Christmas, I'm looking for one that's eco-friendly, but I'm having a hard time. Does anyone know where I might find a 'green' day timer?

Does he need a paper version? Ultimately it can only be so green because it is still a single use item. A couple years back my DH got me a palm pilot instead, and I've never looked back. Bonus is that it fits in my pocket, which no day planner would.

Barring that, a quick google for "recycled day planner" turned up lots of hits.

My palm pilot TX stores about 220 ebooks that would otherwise have been printed on paper, as well as serving as a planner / calendar, alarm clock, and addy book.

Try to find a used one. I just listed a leather day planner on Craigslist that I don't use anymore. Sometimes being green means not buying new stuff that creates more production but using something already around.
