Going Green Day 5

Lastly, the least you can do to be environmentally responsible is

GIVE BACK. How? If you must drive, you can give a tax deductible donation to an organization like carboncounter.org which funds projects to offset carbon dioxide emissions and damage.

Last year at Christmas, I gave these ornaments as gifts. For each one sold, a tree is planted.

Also remember to purchase post consumer recycled products when possible.

Scrapbookers will be pleased to know the following about BasicGrey.

"Not only are BasicGrey papers certified acid and lignin free, but
our papers are green. “Green,” you ask? Yes, for every tree that
is harvested to print BasicGrey paper, two new trees are planted
in its place. Although paper mills are required to replant any
tree that is harvested, our paper mill goes above and beyond by
planting two. In addition, we do not source our paper from any
paper mills that practices clear cutting or deforestation" - from the April retailer's newsletter

Remember to do your part, even if it's a small part to protect our world.

God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars. ~Martin Luther
