What a waste of 300 gsm paper, gallons of ink and millions of kWh of electricity.
That’s not to say photographers are all bad, but like everything else in the world, 90% of them are much of a muchness.
So 90% of those cards hang around on desks for a while, then get binned without a second thought.
If that’s going to happen, couldn’t there be a less wasteful way of going about it?
Well, there is: First-Stop.org aims to put all those photographers (an illustrators) online.
They’ve saved over 2000kg of paper so far.
And they might save even more if you spread the word.
