I just wrote about Night Owl Paper Goods earlier this month but I heart Night Owls designs and products so much that I had to write again about something that is very important to me. Night Owls products are MADE IN THE USA. I know many people don’t care or think it is important but if Night Owl can not only be an eco-friendly business but also operating here in the United States what are other companies excuses? It is our obligation as citizens to support businesses that do work here in the US to keep our economy thriving. If we support business who use eco-friendly practices here in America we can force other larger businesses to do the same.
Night Owl products are beyond reasonably priced and you can even customize your own merchandise. You can make stationary, wedding invites, cards and get scrapbooking materials.
If you aren’t interested in making your own designs they have plenty of their own designs that are soo cute you want to pinch their cheeks. You can even purchase your own hand made owl!
Here is a list of Night Owl Paper Goods Charitable Contributions straight from their own website:

The Paper Potter

The Paper Potter

It may not be spring just yet but I saw The Paper Potter during my V-day gift shopping and thought what a great Valentine’s Day gift or even for wishful spring thinking. The potter is made from FSC certified wood, which makes purchasing it even more worth it.
Soon you will be starting our gardens and instead of buying potters now you can make your own from paper that you were either going to throw away or I hope recycle. Once again the 3R’s: Reduce, Recycle & Reuse! By utilizing The Paper Potter you are making this years gardening experience even more rewarding by saving money, saving trees and adding one more step of sustainability to your experience.
If you participate in a community garden talk to the management and see if they would like to purchase multiple Paper Potters for the gardeners to use. If you are a teacher this is an excellent science project for your students to learn about gardening and sustainability.

THE PAPER POTTER PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

This ingenious device enables you to turn strips of old newspaper into biodegradable plant pots for seedlings.
Once you have hardened off the young plants, transplant them in their biodegradable paper pots without damaging their tender roots.
Children love making paper pots and this innovative and simple gadget can be used to teach an invaluable lesson about sustainable living.

Paper Potter Instructions:
