Valentine’s Day is a celebration full of love, flowers, chocolate, and, of course, cards. Believe it or not, nearly 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged every year in the US. Even the Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare’s most loved characters Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet each year. That’s a LOT of paper to go around!

Being a business in the press industry means that we take conscious efforts to waste less and use resources efficiently. This Valentine’s Day, if you have a card to recycle, please consider sending them to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children where the cards will be recycled and reused to provide teens with life and work skills. Or, drop them in your recycling bin or at your local recycling center!

We hope everyone has a wonderful and loved Valentine’s Day this year. Plus, don’t forget – all chocolate goes on sale the next day!
