Green Office Paper Cutters Made from Recycled Materials

Carl Green Rotary Paper Cutters Made from Recycled Plastic & MetalRegardless of whether you are a conservationist, an environmentalist or you simply want to support companies that use recycled goods; you may want to consider using a Carl paper cutter or trimmer (found here). About a year ago, Carl completely revised their cutters from the ground up. Most of their cutters and trimmers are now made from 100% recycled metal and plastic materials. This is a pretty cool endeavor on Carl’s part and is a first for any paper cutter manufacturer that I’m aware of.

Carl paper cutters really find their mark in small business and home use. My own wife uses a Carl RT-200 for her scrapbooking projects. They can be used to cut and trim down photographs, paper, card stock and more. Their cutters include features such as a grid on the baseboard, easy-to-replace cutting blades and more. Many of their cutters are capable of being used with optional patterned blades, scoring wheels and perforating wheels.

While not all Carl paper trimmers are “Green,” you can identify which are made from recycled material by the color of the paper clamp. If they feature a fluorescent green-yellow clamp, they are made from recycled wood and plastic. While this clamp is a great identifier, it also serves a very useful purpose. The green paper holder is made from a special acrylic material that helps gather and focus light, making it easier to see the object you are cutting.

At ABC Office, we currently offer 7 different green paper cutters from Carl. These include:

  1. Green Environmentally Friendly Rotary Paper CuttersCarl RBT-12 Rotary Trimmer (found here) – This is one of the smallest and most compact trimmers offered by Carl.
