...and the Garbage Award goes to....JAPAN

With Japan's large population and limited land space, landfills are not an option. The Japanese are the frontrunners when it comes to recycling their trash. Did you know that Japan recycles 50% of it's trash? The United States, while it has recycling programs in place across the country, only recycles about 22% of it's trash. The majority of it ends up in landfills.

For this weeks Trashy Tuesday challenge we're going to celebrate Japan's recycling efforts. Your challenge is to make a card (or project) that is Red and White (to represent Japan's flag) and has an Asian influence to it. You don't need to use Asian themed stamps...you can use paper, embellishments, colors, patterns, etc. Brownie points if you incorporate a recycled item on your card; be sure to indicate what your item is.

Remember, there are no time limits, vendor restrictions or other rules for the challenge. It's only for fun and inspiration. When uploading your card to Splitcoaststampers, Papercraft Planet, StampTV or any other site, please use the keyword RESQ08TT. And whenever you upload to a site or you blog, be sure to link back here using so we can all see what you've done! You can use Mr. Linky below!
