Card Recycling

This article was in our local news. Thought I'd pass it along.
Wondering what to do with the dozens of Christmas cards you received this year? Rather than throwing them out you could send them to the Saint Jude's Ranch.

They have a program that takes all kinds of old greeting cards and makes them into something useful. They'll take them all, whether it's birthday, Easter, or Christmas cards. The children participate by taking the old cards, removing the front and attaching a new back. Customers receive "green" holiday cards for use and the children receive payment for their work and learn the benefits and importance of "going green."

For more information: http://stjudesranch.org/help_card.php

so would it save a lot of bulk and mailing costs if one cut the backs off all the cards before mailing them?

Are they taking them again? I did this for years until they asked for people to stop sending them because they had too many. I'd check St. Jude's Ranch website before using up all my postage.

Yes, cutting the backs off the cards would save postage.

I'll be cutting out the pictures on the fronts of mine and using them for gift tags in the years to come.

I keep mine. I'm planning on using them to create a memorable scrapbook.

My mom recycles various greeting cards if she really likes them, she passes them onto someone else and uses a recycle stamp to explain why it has someone else's name inside. HaHa.
