dumpster diving in my recycling bin [day 61]

I’m always yapping to people about my blog and the challenge, but most people will not remember the website name or think about visiting it.  I would like to eventually turn this into a resource of ideas, from easy to radical, on making life changes to become ‘greener’ and conserve our resources.

That little problem of getting my blog URL’s out there got me thinking.  I need a free way, and a way that fits into my challenge of creating business cards (although I hate calling them that) to hand out.  We can call them personal cards.  🙂  I went diving in my recycling container and pulled out some cardboard pieces.  For this batch of cards I used a cereal box, some junk mail and an Ikea curtain packaging insert.  I know what you’re thinking!  I did not shop at Ikea, that was in my extremely messy garage.  Subject for another day.  😉

I cut the cardboard to biz-sized cards, printed my info on paper pulled out of the recycling bin at work and printed these.  I doubt the ink is recycled, but some of the packing of it is.  I printed these at work on a laser copier, as I don’t have a printer at home.  I tore all of the paper by hand and used a tiny amount of non-toxic glue.  There are environmentally friendly glues out there, but I’m using what I have left, as I can’t buy any with the challenge.

Bingo!  Cards.  Here’s a digital close up.

    Oh my goodness! Do your talents know no ends? That’s amazing…but I had to laugh. I would have NEVER thought of doing that.
