ecosystem pulls together all the elements we have been looking for in a planner?beautiful eco-friendly paper; great color; solid construction; special features like a back pocket, perforated pages, and an elastic closure; and a selection of interior formats to suit one's specific needs. And the planner includes all the extra information you need on-the-go: a travel record; time zone map; toll-free number listing; and US and international dialing codes. On top of all that, it is completely made in the USA. And even more?ecosystemlife.com is a great site that tells you more about the exact book you purchased, where it came from, how to recycle it, and more. You can even register it in case you misplace your book. It's a great "system."
