I doubt Elvis’ library card is eco-friendly. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we stopped using plastic for our library cards (credit cards, shopping discount cards, etc?) Well a library in California is doing just that. Their new library cards are made from bamboo! I first heard about this over at Swiss Army Librarian and he made some good points. First, how do they afford this? Second, how can I do something similar (recyclable materials) without having it cost a million dollars. Hopefully someone will figure out answers to those questions very soon and I will have a bamboo library card of my own!
