Now, If They Only Offer Recycling for Them...

Office Depot to offer own brand of CFLs in stores, online

Aug. 15 -- Office Depot Inc. has launched its own brand of compact fluorescent light bulbs, a first in the office products industry.

The Delray Beach, Fla.-based company will sell the CFLs at its retail stores nationwide and on its Web site. The offering is part of its Office Depot Green product line. CFLs use about 75 percent less energy and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

"Compact fluorescent lights represent a tremendous opportunity for Office Depot to serve our increasingly environmentally aware customer base," said Richard Diamond, vice president of merchandising.

Hi!
It was absolutely FANTASTIC to see you and others at yesterday's Cultural Council board meeting. The earrings are TO DIE FOR! Thanks so much for the nice comments about the presentation Dolly and gave. I just know that many great things are going to come out of those few moments! Please, please keep in touch! Also, I was serious about the recycled Christmas wreathe. As much as I loved the one that got destroyed in our fire, I don't have to have one exactly like it. In fact, I'd rather have something totally wonderful and new that you'd enjoy making as much as I'll enjoy sharing here at Mouse House during the holidays....so....think about it and let me know if I can afford such a one-of-a-kind creation!

PS There one very, very glaring error on your website! You are hardly a "wannabe" artist! Change the adject to "wild, wonderful, recyling"! It sounds better and is much, much more accurate!
