Green Living Blog: Eco-friendly greeting cards

Green Living Blog logo After reading this post, don't forget to enter our contest – you could win a new dishwasher. Plus, do you have your own story to tell? Send it to greenchallenge@canadianliving.com (no more than 300 words, please), and you could win one of 30 daily prizes. Today's winner is Tiina Rebane.
With our constant focus on being green, I find that some things are going to the extreme – for example, greeting cards. There's something so special about receiving an envelope that isn't a bill. With virtually everyone using emails these days, I really look forward to the old-fashioned birthday card. That said, there is a way around the dilemma of sending proper cards without promoting the ever-wasteful greeting card industry – make your own cards! From a very early age my sister and I have been making cards for our family members from newspapers, flyers, old greeting cards – whatever we could get our hands on. It is a great creative outlet for parents and children, promotes the three Rs in a fun way, and guarantees that the recipient won't be receiving the same card twice!
Thanks to Tiina for sending in her story – and don't forget, if you still haven't entered, there's still time to send your own story to greenchallenge@canadianliving.com.
