The next time you reach for your stapler, try this instead! Use (then re-use and re-use…) a paperclip. If all of the country’s 75 million white-collar workers used just one fewer staple each day, there would be a daily saving of 5500 lbs. of steel—that’s about 900 tons a year. Teachers and students, take note!!
