So, what do you do with your annual birthday card from Grandma once you’ve read it (and taken out the check for $25)? Stuff it in the back of a drawer where it’ll gather dustand add to your clutter? Or trash immediately and feel heartless and guilty? Now there’s a better way… you can make Granny’s kind sentiments live on forever… as carpet backing.
ReProduct is a new line of greeting cards from Cradle to Cradle Holdings, whose mission it is to rid the world of waste. The cards are made of OPP (oriented polypropylene plastic) and come with a 2-way envelope so that the recipient can send it back (postage paid, of course) to Shaw Industries where it will be made into the company’s EcoWorx carpet tile backing.
Of course, this can be used for any manner of greeting you choose: Christmas, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day. Just don’t send anything too risqué. Carpets blush too, you know.
