These Come From Trees Sticker
This is the sticker we're hoping can save a couple hundred thousand trees a year. Amazing how the right message at the right time can make the difference.

Quick Facts about "These Come From Trees"

Ooops! Forgot about this one!

No sooner do I post about the benefits of Creative Commons licensing and an idea like These Come From Trees, than I remember that These Come From Trees had another meaningful open source moment a few months ago.

I got an email from this nice woman named Dina, who lives in Kuwait. She wanted to implement something like These Come From Trees, after reading about it some friendly blog who linked to us.

At first she bought some stickers, but then, a month later, circled back saying that while the English language ones were all well and good, she'd love to translate them to Arabic.

I provided her with the Photoshop EPS files, and she did her magic. This was the result:

I can't say for the life of me what they say, but they sure are pretty. Hopefully they're catchy too, and jibe with the basic tenets of the These Come From Trees project, which is that a non-judgmental, helpful reminder at the moment of consumption can really help reduce down the amount of unintentional waste we produce.

At our local Zoo in Portland, OR they have some great stickers on their paper towel dispensers. I can't remembe exactly what they say but it is something like, "10 out of 10 chimpanzees prefer trees to paper towels." I like that it also links paper towels to the animal world. Keep up the great work.

I am adding this blog to the favorites list on my blog because I think what you're saying is so important.

I'd like to also post something relevant on my sidebar if you have such a thing I could use, please.

Karma is such that one day plants will feast on the remains of humans who so diligently and arrogantly became the very disease that killed them all. Poor fools.

This is a great idea I'm probably going to have to buy this.
