Happy Earth Day!

A couple of years ago I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Alaska. What an incredible adventure it was! The scenery there, with all of its natural beauty, is simply breathtaking. Since it's Earth Day, I thought you might enjoy seeing a few snapshots from our trip.

Every time I look at these pictures, I am reminded of our responsibility to take care of the environment. FineStationery.com offers many recycled and eco-friendly items-- read more about the green brands that we carry at the bottom of this post.






















This is a photo taken at Glacier Bay-- the formation in the background of the photo (in the center) is actually a glacier moving down between two mountains.
