Just learned about a non- profit doing great work recycling and redistributing gift cards.
The Gift Card industry is a 60 billion dollar industry. Ever wonder how many gift cards are unused? More than 10%. That means billions of dollars are waiting to be used for good on Gift Cards.In fact, I bet if you looked in your purse or wallet right now you would have at least one or more unused gift cards. Gift Card Giver is a new form of giving. Here’s how it works:
WHAT DO YOU DO?
STEP 1: Use as much of your card as you want (or send a full card).
STEP 2: Write how much is left on your card using a permanent marker.
STEP 3: Place the card in an envelope and send it to Gift Card Giver at:
Gift Card Giver
PO Box 17628
Atlanta, GA 30316
WHAT THEY DO?
Gift Card Giver collects all the cards and organizes them in secure bins by company name. Then Gift Card Giver gives the total amount of those cards toward a project, person or organization that can best use that gift card for a significant need. Sometimes, Gift Card Giver buys the gifts themselves and delivers the gift directly.
After Gift Card Giver contributes cards to projects, they share the experience on their website for others to read about. Want to read about some of their Giving Stories or how you can host your own Gift Card Party visit: giftcardgiver.com.

They should really try using eGift cards..that way it can go toward a good cause and still be eco-friendly. Each year, 75 lbs of PVC ends up in landfills due to gift card waste. It could also cut down on their transaction costs. Just a thought.
**That’s 75 million lbs of PVC
