Nearly 160 million greeting cards will be purchased for Valentine’s Day this year, according to the Greeting Card Association, and that doesn’t even include the packaged Valentine’s Day cards kids exchange at school. This year, why not send an e-card instead and encourage your friends and family to do the same? This will save a lot of trees and reduce trash in the landfill.
Create your own Valentine’s Day e-card featuring Zipper and his friend, Snaps!
Don’t forget to recycle any paper cards and envelopes you receive or use them in other projects, like this Tissue Paper Flower craft.
