Green Valentines Day

Each year at Valentines Day there are millions of cards bought, given and received. That’s a heck of a lot of virgin paper that eventually goes to the land fill. Instead, read the back of cards before purchasing -- look for cards that are FSC certified or that contain post consumer paper. By doing this, you are purchasing paper products that are recycled or harvested by entities that have a tree replanting program. This helps us all be a little easier on the earth.

Make your own cards with recycled paper and odds and ends from around the house. You know those extra packets of sugar from your last take out order? Those would be great tied onto a piece of red card stock with the words "you're sweet".
