Going Green


This may be old news, but I still want to share it. There is a company called greendimes, and for around ten cents a day, they will stop junk mail coming to your house and plant a tree to replace those killed by said junk mail. The service has been in the states for a while and will be available in Canada in March. We get so much junk mail here that isn't even opened, but put immediately in the recycling bin, so I'm looking forward to signing up. Also, I've got to win back some karma points for all the paper I use making my books.


For more on this green theme, check out the latest issue of domino - all about eco living and decorating, and not one bit hippy-ish in the least.


Cheerio!

Both you + Erin @ Operation Paper Cut have mentioned offsetting the paper used in making books with eco-friendly options (actually, she wrote about wrestling with using recycled paper beacuse of the higher cost + passing the cost onto the customer ). I am a obsessive recycler but just don't think about this when it comes to my books. Gotta think about this one for awhile.
Hey, m Domino has not arrived yet...can't wait.
