Awesome Resource: The World’s Greenest Business Card


Check out these awesome business cards from Toronto Based company, Traffic Marketing + Design inc.

   "The idea was born at a recent 'green' networking event when someone
handed me a laminated business card," says Bernard Hellen, R.G.D. President
and Creative Director of traffic marketing + design. "What an amazing
disconnect, a 'green' company hands me a piece of plastic as their business
card. Surely if you 'talk the talk' you had better 'walk the walk'."

Wondering how much difference these business cards make?  Check this out:

Every printing will conserve the following resources:
  • 3 trees/1040 lbs of wood not used
  • 162 lbs/74 kg solid waste not created
  • 1,529 gallons/6,953 L of water not used – enough for 88 eight minute showers
  • 356 lb/161 kg greenhouse gases prevented – equivalent to carbon sequestered by 15.2 tree seedlings grown for ten years

Plus, a tree will be planted for every business card order. Tree donations will be made through Trees Ontario, a not-for-profit organization committed to the re-greening of Ontario.

Make sure you book by August 25th in order to get in on the next print run!

Link Love: Work Cabin: Canada’s Outpost for Environmental Jobs!


“Get a job, grow a career, work for change”

I just have to introduce you to this fantastic resource:  Work Cabin…a Canadian job posting board unlike any other.  The Work Cabin is an earth – friendly paradise of job postings, resources, leads and ideas.  When I have a look at the listings I’m taken right back to being a teenager scouring the classifieds for summer camp jobs…except that a good percentage of the jobs posted on Work Cabin are real-life careers, and all of them give job seekers the opportunity to work for green, earth friendly companies with like-minded colleagues.

Are you an employer, looking for eco-friendly employees?  Check out these web traffic rankings!  You’ll be sure to find the right person, and fast, when you post your job opportunities with Work Cabin.  Their rates are highly competitive, and you have the added benefit of a very targeted, very enthusiastic audience!

Besides the obvious job listings, Seekers can post their mini profiles on the site, getting even more exposure, and Volunteer listings are free.  I could seriously go on and on about this fantabulous site, but I won’t keep you…go check out Work Cabin and get your environmental career on the trail!
