    Got a project here to do with the reuse of products, im not talking about recycling exactly but more like like reusing, eg. giving computers to youth groups, things like that.

    Im just looking for any resources or groups that deal with 'green' issues.

          Someone I'm in touch with through another forum (Jacob Madsen) did some really great stuff for a re-use of scrap for art center...

          I'm referring to the 3 designs in a row at the bottom of the set of 9 on this page.

          Thought you might find it interesting even if not directly useful.

            It's a good idea. People need to recycle and it needs to be easier for those that choose to.

                  Working at a printers - we have loads of offcuts of pretty cards and papers and interesting card shapes left over from die cutting. We give them to kindergartens to play with.

                  There should be a company that links up excess stuff from companies to other organisations that would like them. Maybe any waste that your company makes gets put into a database and some genius figures out what can be done with it and contacts the people that might want this excess stuff to pick up.

                    That's good to hear about re-using and all.

                    The saying goes something like: "Refuse, recycle, re-use and repair."

                    The repair is a latter addition, an area that's formed small industry in " less developed nations".

                    If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.

                      Although once I went someone's house where they repaired and recycled everything. I'm talking every tin can ever used in this house was kept. I think that's going a *little* overboard....

                        ^ My mother is like that. She is running out of room to store things that "someone might need someday".

                          Oh, I'm pretty good at hording, but we moved house 2 months ago so I threw out just about everything.

                          Moving house is a good way to sort it all out.

                          Too bad we have heaps of storage under our house - I can see us putting stuff in there that we cant throw out.

                                Of course there is nothing wrong with using the tools you have available to their best effect. I happen to agree that in your position, Publisher is a good choice. Most pro designers wouldn't know this,...

                                For layout purposes, Publisher is certainly a step up from MS Word.

                                Professional designers generally stay away from Publisher because it largely consumer and office software that doesn't...

                                Neither Foil nor Varnish are done on a digital press - you would have to get your Business Cards printed Litho. For 100 cards this is always going to be expensive - you could probably get 2000 cards...
