Year of the Forests

Are you thinkings: Is she going to live in a forest for a year? My answer is "No", but for 12 years I lived right next door to one.

UN has named 2011 as International Year of the Forests to create awareness about how to use forests in a suistanable an conservating manner. A way you can support this is to look out for the recycled logo when buying paper etc. Recycle the paper (and cardboard) whenever possible. Also look out for the FSC certificate when buing wood furniture - IKEA is using more and more FSC certified wood in their furniture and more companies are joing them in this effort to created suistanable forrests.

Did you know, that paper can be reused 6 times, if recycled?

When I create my cards, I use a lot of paper. Some of it are reuse of papers from magazines, books etc. Every scap not used (yes even the paperwaste from punching holes in to paper before putting it into binders), are collected in used envelops an tossed into the container for recycling paper.
