Recycle Your Christmas Cards!

Our friends at Petite Planet recently brought this fabulous recycling idea to my attention:

"Through February 28, 2009, you can mail your used, all-occasion greeting cards fronts to St. Jude's Ranch, and they will be made into new cards by children.
The kids attach a blank recycled paper back to the card, making them into new cards for buyers... and they get paid for their work! It's a win-win-win situation! Consumers buy green, kids learn about and earn green, and the earth is a little greener due to the recycling of the cards!If you have any other greeting cards collecting dust or taking space, send those in too!
And you can also order a set of 10 cards for $8, in the categories of:
General Christmas Cards,
Religious Christmas Cards,
Easter Cards,
Birthday Cards,
Thank You Cards,
All Occasion General Greeting Cards."


Send cards here:
