Valentine's Day Tip #1..............

Try your hand at making a homemade card with items around the house, left over cards, paper, wrapping paper, tissue paper, buttons, glitter, beads, magazines, newspaper, bottle caps, macaroni, paint, glue, toys, etc. The list just goes on and on, if you still would like to buy a card support a local artist or purchase who cards from recycled materials.

Buy Valentine’s Day cards made from recycled paper
Every time you use a product without recycled materials, new resources must be dug up and manufactured, making an environmental impact, including stockpiling in your landfills. Conserve a tree, a national authority on recycled paper, estimates that approximately 7 to 24 full grown trees are saved for every 40 cases (1 ton) of recycled paper purchased instead of virgin fiber paper.
