This Comes From Trees is a guerrilla paper waste elimination project. It is a conservation project that is offered for FREE to everyone. It all began with a guy in India having lunch at an fast-food restaurant in Delhi. While eating, he noticed people taking piles and piles of napkins, many of which ended up unused and in the trash. How could he stop this waste? After a little thinking, he came up with an idea: why not give people a gentle reminder that those napkins came from precious trees. This might help people think twice before taking as many, and reduce waste in the process. Voila! This Comes From Trees stickers were created.


After a little research and testing, it turned out this gentle reminder goes a long way. Tens of thousands of stickers have now been distributed worldwide, and they have been translated into more than five languages! You can bring this gentle reminder to your school/college/office/restaurants for free! It’s a quick and easy project to help your team get started.


Decide where you’d like to place the stickers. (Great places for stickers: paper towel dispensers, printers, copy machines and paper cups dispensers in around your office, etc.) Once you’ve decided how many stickers you want and where you’d like to put them, print your own set of stickers to post them.
