Lead change with the Green Book revolution!

UC Berkeley faculty and students can lead change by recommending and using Green Books for exams. Examination books, which have historically been referred to by their traditional blue color, have also gone GREEN!

What's in the color difference?  How about 100% recycled paper made with 30% post consumer waste. 

The Cal Student Store sells blue and green examination books at the same price, despite the increased cost of the Green Books.  Green Book prices:  Small: $.35  Large: $.45

Make your exams green this year - ask for and use Green Books!
