My Scrappylife

the green revolution

Posted on: March 3, 2009

traditional scrapbooking (as opposed to digital) entails/requires a lot of paper-based materials. a page would require a piece of paper or cardstock, a couple of die-cuts or chipboard or stickers or frames…a scrapbooker would always say that a finished page is worth every penny spent…and it’s true. memories are indeed priceless. but the truth is that scrapbooking has a great impact on the environment.

fortunately, in the past couple of years, there have been quite a number of environmentally responsible scrapbooking materials being produced.ย  for example, Piggy Tales has begun printing its papers on recycled paper with soy-based inks.

last year, K&Company released a line called “ReMake” — where the materials/products are printed using soy-based inks and created using sustainable manufacturing practices and recycled 100% post-consumer waste.ย  even their packaging was made using PCW. you can even cut-out the designs onย  the packaging to use as embellishments on your pages. in addition, their clear protective bags are made out of corn-based materials. cool huh? ๐Ÿ™‚

and just last month, DCWV released its Green Stack collection made from 70% PCW that is also acid and lignin free. the paper pad features 24 woodland designs. there’s also a matching chipboard set with 105 letters and shapes also made from 70% PCW.

Bru, were you able to grab one of those DCWV Green stacks while we were at Joann’s? They were 40% off! I grabbed one, but I don’t remember if you did. Cute papers! ๐Ÿ˜€
