Seeing the wood for the trees

By
Real Estate Agent with Windermere Real Estate - Palm Springs CalBRE# 01339266

While reading through The Huffington Post today, I saw something that I hadn't heard about before: Sustainable wooden keycards for hotel rooms. What a brilliantly simple idea.

"Sustainable Cards LLC of Boulder has donated more than 70,000 wood hotel key cards to use at hotels throughout the Denver area" - Denver Business Journal.

I checked their website and I love their ideas: sustainable gift cards, membership cards, and hotel key cards.

This reminds me to "never overlook the obvious" .... and "not seeing the wood for the trees".

What an interesting idea.  I would wonder about the process.  The other day I saw a show and they were 'going green' then used Brazillian Cherry advising it was sustainable.  Isn't Brazillian Cherry from the Rainforests?  I think that might not be exactly 'green friendly'!

I do worry that sometimes they advertise things as green that are not - however if they truely are environmentally friendly it would be wonderful!

I had never heard of this! It does seem to be an interesting concept, perhaps they make them out of bamboo.

I've had real wood business cards for about 10 years now. One can also get real wood postcards and much more. For the past five years, I've been using Cards of Wood.

Russel - You should have told us all about this a long time ago..... :) Brilliant move!

I checked the "Cards of Wood" website and noticed they've beeing in business since 1960. Now's the time for them to start making the key cards.
