Tree-friendly paper.

The papermaking industry is well known for depleting Earth's supply of freshwater and trees. But at Twisted Limb Paper-works, Sheryl Woodhouse Keese is offering a way for people to help conserve our environment. Keese offers beautiful, handmade invitations, stationery, guest books, thank you notes, programs and favors from I00 percent recycled, chlorine-free paper. This home-based business, located in Noomington, Indiana, offers a large range of colors, while using no additional dyes. The studio also reuses water from its dehumidifier and runs on green electricity. As of last year, the company recycled 6,500 pounds of paper, saving an estimated 78 trees. Twisted Limb Paperworks also organized the making of the world's largest piece of handmade recycled paper, measuring 22.5 by 30 feet. Proceeds from the sale of that paper support conservation efforts in Indiana. CONTACT: Twisted Limb Paperworks, (812)876-9352, www.twistedlimbpaper.com.
