Beach Clean-Up of Plastic Turns Into ‘Green’ Greeting Card Business
Cable ties, bottle caps, and colorful pieces of plastic would be trash to most of us, but 34-year -old Flora Blathwayt saw art, and eventually, a greeting card business! While unemployed during the pandemic, she started using the discarded junk found on the shore of the River Thames to create green greeting cards. Neighbors encouraged her to create a business, and Washed Up Cards was born. Washed Up Cards sell for $6, and each card is stamped with where the plastic litter was sourced from.
