Using Recycled Materials

All the materials Nicola uses are rescued items that would otherwise have ended up in landfills. She retrieves them from yard sales, recycling centers, and peoples homes. She uses new shipping boxes made from 50% recycled paper fiber. The packing peanuts used to protect the orders during shipping are recycled and are sourced at the Reuse Centre in Edmonton, Canada. If you have old diskettes or obsolete computer keyboards, Nicola would be happy to recycle them for you.
