Is the gift card industry going green? There’s been some chatter recently about a Starbucks sustainable wood gift card. I originally saw the article on Mother Nature Network; according to the article, Starbucks is releasing a new limited edition gift card “sourced from a forest certified to meet Forest Stewardship Council sustainable management standards.” When I tried to confirm it on the Starbucks website, I saw a link, but the article has been removed. April Fool’s joke perhaps?
Honorable mention went to creating a luggage tag, replacing flimsy collar stays, and my favorite, a smartphone stand. How are you using gift cards to be good to the environment?
