Earth Day (April 22nd) is fast approaching. I think it's wonderful all the scrapbooking companies that have begun to go green with recycled products, soy based inks and bulk packaging. But, I for one, think the indsutry has a long way to go. There are literally hundreds of product packaging that get tossed everyday. If we each were able to reuse and recycle just one package a day..that would be millions of items not heading for land fills.
I love to reuse packaging. I reuse acetate for cards and embellishments. A recent card I did is featured in this months Scrapbooking.com magazine here.
Here are several other projects using product packaging from empty containers to product backings.
