11-02-2011 Eco Trend: Greetings gone green

Let’s be honest – it is very rare for people to keep the greeting cards they are given. Most people look at the pretty cover, read the funny slogan, smile at the message inside…then throw it in the bin. Since greeting cards are such a disposable item, it makes sense to buy ones that are made from recycled paper. Here at Trendspotting, we’re very happy that recycling is getting sexy! Many card companies have jumped on the recycling bandwagon and no idea what to do with it, Mark and Sally Bailey’s “Recycled Home” book is a must-read. This couple have an eye for decorating and a knack for recycling. Through photos and explanations, they show their readers how to turn old furniture, clothes, and flooring into household items and features. They are experts in transforming old or unloved household objects to the point where they become masterpieces. These authors will inspire you to decorate your home in an eco-friendly, cost-effective, and creative way. Follow their lead and you may end up with a one-of-a-kind home and people asking for the name of your decorator!
