Eco-friendly Recycled Scrapbook Paper

It is certainly a challenge crafting a green scrapbook, but K & Company has kept sustainability in mind by introducing two eco-friendly scrapbook collections.  Each collection is printed with soy-based inks, on recycled paper, with recycled and reusable packaging.  The Lotus Collection features the hypnotic floral designs of Amy Butler, while the ReMake Collection meets basic needs for colored paper and chipboard embellishments.

If you love Amy Butler’s fabric designs you will swoon over her paper line.  The Lotus Collection, by the famed fabric and surface designer, is printed with soy-based inks on post-consumer waste recycled paper.  Lotus products come in recycled pakaging made from 95% post-consumer waste.  What’s more is the packaging is reusable.  The back card stock of the paper pads is printed with cut-outs that can be used as embellishments.  

The ReMake Collection offers all the basics for scrapbooking and card-making.  The brightly colored papers, cards, and envelopes are printed with soy-based inks on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper.  Remake packaging is also sustainable with reusable paper packaging designed with embellishment cut-out and clear protective bags made from corn.  The papers are still acid free and lignin free.

K & Company is taking their commitment to the environment one step further with a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City.  They have created an online donation program and all donations will be used to plant trees in the yards of the Habitat for Humanity homes.  With your Plant A Family Tree donation you will also receive a package of downloadable graphics to spread the word about your donation and to invite others to do the same.

    Several companies have “green” lines now! Die Cuts With a View had a Green stack, Fancy Pants has a great line of eco papers, the new Jillibean Soup is a green sb company, and Colorbok and Prima have both made steps in this direction, as well!

    I did know about the ReMake collection from when I was researching that article you mentioned (yeah, that one was mine), but I didn’t know about the Lotus one! Will have to look into that one– I love Amy Butler’s prints! Not that I need any more paper…and I’m trying to not buy stuff for my scrapbook right now…Hmm.

    There are those who like to stand out from others even with the items that they use and so they create their own designs and scrapbooks and they do not just buy one from a store. They take the time to create their own paper craft and this becomes their identity. Aside from that, this also becomes their way of helping out in the conservation of the environment by not having to purchase brand new items all the time.

    Reusing paper products is one way of helping out in the reduction of paper wastes and this also serves as a reflection of how much you care about the preservation of our natural resources. Paper is one of the most wasted material every day and most of it is not properly disposed of. Printed documents can still be reused but if not, they should be safely destroyed.

    If you have the materials and the idea of what your loved one or friend might want for a present, you can make it instead of buying one. In this way, you get to add a personal touch which the recipient will definitely appreciate. Whether it’s a papercraft made from recycled or shredded paper, plastic or other kinds of ornaments – the important thing is that you have placed thought and care on your gift.
    I would also would like to share an article that I recently read regarding cleaning and getting things organized at:
    http://family.go.com/household/article-255182-best-ways-to-organize-your-craft-supplies-t/
    Most of us deal with clutter problems especially if we have such busy lifestyles. With everything that’s going on at work and at home, it is pretty difficult to catch up with the cleaning and organizing.
