Mrs. DeLuca has a problem... She loves office supplies!! Can't go into a Staples or an Office Max without buying something, hands down her favorite store!! But think about it, all the wasted energy that went into making those things, many of which will probably never be used... Just to sit in a desk. So much wasted energy!! The factory where these office supplies were made was running on energy. The workers who were making the supplies used energy to get to work, the energy used in the manufacturing process, the energy used to ship these things (doubt they were made in the US) across the world, the energy used in the store where people go to buy them. The energy wasted on the drive home... and the energy wasted as this useless thing sits in a drawer...
