little bunnies

I saw this little tutorial in my Google Reader and
thought it was such a cute way to recycle little socks.


What sort of recycled crafts are you making this spring?


MOO and super eco friendly paper

If you are not inclined to DIY your business cards, what about MOO?
Moo announced yesterday, " on the 22nd March we will be replacing
our current green stock with our new ’super eco friendly paper’."

"Made from 100% Post Consumer Waste and FSC certified, the eco credentials for this are even more amazing than our previous paper. It’s made with electricity generated by renewable, non polluting wind power from Green-e. (Green-e is the nation’s leading independent certification and verification program for renewable energy products, they ensure strict environmental and consumer protection standards.) Process chlorine and acid free, the paper has been manufactured in compliance with the standards set for alkaline papers by the American National Standards Institute."

Only thing is, they're kind of expensive
50 cards – £14.99/$24.99/€17.99
200 cards – £47.99/$79.99/€57.49

What are some more green business card options?

DIY and recycled business cards

This DIY was on design*sponge not too long ago -
maybe you've seen it?


Also, this was on a fashion blog recently, Bobbin Talk


"That's the back of one of my business cards. I recycle cartons from cereal, beer, tea... whatever cardboard I can find to print my cards on! Save the planet one tree at a time!"
Aneta Genova

Carrying the recycled concept through all of your packaging
and marketing helps to reinforce the green in your work.
