Simple Staffers Earth-Friendly Product Picks

What does “going green” mean to you? Does it mean wearing your favorite green sweater all winter long? Does it mean organizing all of your green scrapbook supplies? Or does it mean trying to be more environmentally conscious when it comes to scrapbooking? If you answered yes to the last question, then you’re off to a good start to becoming a “green” scrapper. Many of the leading scrapbook manufacturers are now producing more sustainable products, such as paper created from or printed on recycled material, soy-based inks, and reusable product packaging. Some are also manufacturing goods in the U.S. to build our local economy and save money on the costs to ship products around the world. Check out these product picks from the Simple staff that get high ratings for being both earth-friendly and absolutely adorable.



It’s easy to get excited about protecting our Earth with this adorable new paper line from Die Cuts with a View. Printed on 70% post-consumer recycled paper, this playful collection of 24 designs features a forest of woodland creatures including characters like a watchful owl, a loveable skunk, and a bashful beaver. Plus, the paper texture makes each sheet sturdy enough for layering paper, photos, and embellishments. 



American Crafts
cardstock is housed in innovative, convenient storage boxes that can easily be stored on a shelf or desk. As you use paper from your supply, don’t discard the box—use it as a storage bin and replenish your supply. This will save you money on a storage system and make your paper look neat and tidy.



Piggy Tales
was one of the first major scrapbooking manufacturers to print all of its scrapbook papers on certified recycled paper printed with soy-based inks rather than the standard petroleum-based inks. Their product lines will help you save your memories and save a tree.
