St Judes Recycled Card Program For Greener Holidays!

Make Santa's Footprint Greener.

What can be greener than finding a place to recycle and reuse everything after the holiday?  St Judes offers us a meaningful holiday card recycle option.
After the holidays we are all faced with what to do with that pile of holiday cards we receive.  They are so delightful, that it seems a shame to just toss them in a bin!  One of the best things you can do is recycle them by giving them to charity such as St Judes Recycled Card Program which accepts cards for all occasions !
For over 30 years St Judes has been accepting used card donations to transform the previous year’s Christmas cards into "new" cards for the coming season.  What a great concept!
Since the inception, the Program expanded to include all occasion greeting cards sent in by people from all over the world.
The children and volunteers at St Judes make the new cards by removing the front and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new earth friendly card. The benefits are two-fold: customers receive "green" holiday cards for use and the children receive payment for their work and learn the benefits and importance of "going green".
So, after the holidays pack your cards up and recycle them in a new way!
St Judes Recycled Card Program is not only innovative and green but one of Planetpals Favorites! You can buy GREEN and recycle GREEN. all while making GREEN for the children of St Judes.
Cards can be sent to St Judes from November 15, 2009 - February 28, 2010.
You can mail your donations to:
