Recycle is to process used items so that the material can be used to make new products. Reduce refers to lowering the amount of items or resources that are consumed. Reuse means repurposing an item rather than discarding it. Recycling generally prevents the waste of potentially useful materials, reduces the consumption of raw materials and reduces energy usage.

Scrapbooking is about preserving a legacy in the form of photos, media and other memorabilia while incorporating the creative use of papers in decorated albums.

Recycling and Scrapbooking are a perfect match. Paper, the primary material in scrapbooking, is a natural, renewable resource, making it an environmentally friendly medium.

There are so many fun and easy ways to make your scrapbook personal and unique by reusing things from around your own home. The handcrafted items made from common everyday goods add the ultimate personal touch that can’t be duplicated in mass production. Here are a few ideas on how you can increase your recycling while you scrapbook:

Recycle

  • Set up an area near where you scrapbook for items that can be recycled like papers or ribbon scraps, this will encourage you to consume more and throw away less
  • Purchase recycled scrapbook paper, there are new lines of patterned scrapbook paper that are made from 30% post consumer content and use vegetable based inks (available now at www.scrapbookpantry.com)

Reuse

  • Use the scraps on several pages in the same album to carry an overall theme
  • Donate the papers in your someday pile to charity or your local senior center
  • Share or trade your idea books with your friends
  • Purchase slightly used items scrapbook garage sales (or host your own)
  • Find a way to use the packing material often included with scrapbook items (remember you may need to treat these items to make them archival safe)
  • Don’t just buy your buttons collect them from old blouses or shirts in your closet

Reduce

  • Purchase durable, long-lasting products
  • Use every bit of item that you do purchase
  • Don’t buy the newest item if you already have a similar item
