The world’s largest piece of recycled paper
Yes! It’s true, the one Guinness World Record that you never expected to be real. Yet, here it is.
On August, 10th 2012, a local Spokane company, Green Cupboards, attempted to break the world record for the longest piece of recycled paper. (The committee is still out on whether or not Guinness has approved the win.) The finished product was over 1300 feet long.
Green Cupboards peddles some seriously wicked products. We’ve used their rock awesome mango sunscreen before (priceless!). The best part is, they are all about keeping our world healthy. Not only did they make a huge piece of recycled paper, they invited the local youth to come and plant seeds in the paper.
When it dries, they plan to cut it up into card stock for business cards and thank you cards which can then be planted. Whether you get vegetables, herbs, or flowers depends on the cards you receive. A little bit of mystery drizzled on an already sweet project.
Take a look at the video up top and celebrate an innovative way to give back.

Very cool. I imagine the attempt is more about awareness than an actual Guinness World Record… Although, that would be pretty cool, too!
what a cool idea! i wonder why it didnt make worldwide news, seriously!!
Did that “local youth” have a strong hand in the recycling of said paper? She looks a miscreant if ever I’ve seen one.
Now THAT’s a cool idea.. recycled paper turned business cards turned garden?! Where can I get one?
This is really cool! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Look, I’m all about being “green” and I think this is very admirable, but what I really want to know about is that green necklace around your neck and when it will be sent my way.
Very curious undertaking!
They should have given you a marker and had you write a travel post. It could have been the world’s largest recyclable travel blog.
Interesting concept…i love world records and am actually a part of two, though they both involve large numbers of people. I love the idea of being able to reuse the paper once again for growing something.
