New Cardboard Crocks!


In celebration of spring we are unveiling a new design: the Cardboard Crock! If you are an avid gardener and appreciate the concept of wearing your shoes and eating them too, the Cardboard Crock is 100% compostable. Water, sweat, and spit soluble, these shoes will truly take you for a walk through the mud. You may want to wear socks because once they melt there is nothing between you and that gravel road. Kids who prefer to run around barefoot will love these shoes, especially if they take them for a wade through the creek. The shoes are a healthy snack for fish, but will not provide protection against crabs, broken glass, or water snakes.  They are also recyclable. Once you outgrow them (if they haven’t yet dissolved), simply crumple them up and toss them in the recycle bin. The Cardboard Crock gives new meaning to a low carbon footprint. Pick up a pair of these limited edition shoes while they last, and keep in mind, if they don’t fit, they are environmentally safe and effective tinder for the fire.  Available one day only, April,1 2013.

Re-Visit Children’s Building Project


Super-Cool!  Check out this RE-VISIT to the Public Workshop at National Building Museum – Posted a year ago.  In March of 2011, Cardboard Safari created hundreds of cardboard disks for Alex Gilliam of Public Workshop for an interactive children’s project at the National Building Museum.  See this link for more info and images. Also some Flickr images here.

Quote from Anna “My son had a great time putting these discs together at the building museum. Are these going to be available as a product to buy?”  “Yeah! I Couldn’t Wait Any Longer”

We Love French Paper

We love French Paper – Here at Cardboard Safari we love the many beautiful choices created by the French Paper Company, America’s family run paper mill established in 1871 and is in its sixth-generation, family-owned, iconic designer paper manufacturing. Celebrating their 141st Anniversary this year 2012. They even produce their paper using hydro-electric power.
