Any experience with Ecologically Appropriate beautiful but EXPENSIVE banana paper?

Office Max had some ecological binders and paper this morning. The banana paper was beautiful--it had purple flecks and I really wanted some. But it was about $8 for a pack of 100 sheets. The package had a small cut-out window at the upper left corner so I could see the paper, but I couldn't tell how heavy it is. Has anyone gotten any of this? I'd like to know how it works before I buy some. I'd be slicing it in half to get Classic size, so I'd get 200 sheets for $8, which isn't bad, but still, I'd like to be a little more confident that I'll like it.

I tried to look it up online and Googled banana paper, but what I found was a different brand, and it was $30 for 500 sheets. That's TEN TIMES as expensive as regular paper! I'd like to see some of the benefits to the earth passed along to my pocketbook!

Is this it ?

This stuff says it is 75 gram

Also, a bit of unit pricing: 100 sheets for $8 becomes 8 cents per sheet

8 cents x 500 sheets = $40

So that $30 price for a ream is actually pretty good

Yes, that's what I found

Yes, that's what I found online. 75g is equivalent to 20lb, isn't it? I don't think this is the paper that was at Office Max -- it had the lovely purple flecks. I want the purple flecks, actually. I don't mind paying $8 for the pack, just hope it's nice paper. Wish it were a bit heavier.
