Green Your Greeting Cards: New Life for Old Cards

Recycle greeting cards Holiday correspondence certainly spreads cheer, but it also consumes trees and increases waste. This week, we'll show you how to reuse, recycle, and rethink greeting cards. 

Tip #1: Reuse Old Cards

Wondering what to do with all the cards you receive during the holiday season? You can give those greetings a second life by sending them to St. Jude's Ranch for Children. The organization's Recycled Card Program accepts used cards through February 28, and the recycled cards created by the children can be purchased throughout the year.
