These kits may be different from what we are used to as scrapbookers and papercrafters, but the bottom line is our Earth is in trouble and doing nothing is not an option if we care about the next generation. The modern documenter will appreciate buying eco-friendly and fair trade supplies to craft with and making this carefree style of documenting part of their lifestyle. Scaled down with the ability to attach photos and embellishments as well as journal all of your thoughts and memories, this kit (and the others like it) will inspire you to create outside the box. In order for scrapbooking to be viable in the future it is essential that we make it eco-conscious and sensitive to issues like exploitative labor practices and even slavery/trafficking that results from wide economic disparity throughout the world.
