Earlier this month, a new product designed by a Cincinnati company was deemed museum-worthy. The GreenBird House, from GreenBird LLC, was recently added to the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum in Atlanta, Georgia (which, according to their website, is an “internationally renowned resource on the history of paper and paper technology”).
The GreenBird House is a single season birdhouse constructed from post-consumer recycled paper-board (supplied by a local paper company), which can be composted at the end of the year.
GreenBird’s goal is to use their eco-friendly product to help promote green products and publicize the depletion of bird habitat in the US.
According the Steve Jones, VP of Marketing at GreenBird, “It allows everyone to learn about recycling and bird habitat loss (while) at the same time letting everyone know they can make a difference in their local ecosystem…We designed the packaging and included educational material on birds, bird habitat loss, recycling, art and local ecosystem support.”
The first birdhouses were released in June, and are now available at the locally-owned shops Outside, Mica, Park and Vine and Greenfield Plant Farms. The GreenBird House will also be at area Bigg’s stores in the coming weeks.
Biodegradable milk paint for customization, natural birdseed, and more information (including and really great plan to use the GreenBird House for fundraising) is available at www.greenbirdhouse.com
