We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
~Native American Proverb
We’re all trying to be more kind to the earth – and for good reason: when we leave this earth to our children, we want our earth to be as beautiful – or even more beautiful – than when we were children. To this end, many companies are taking a greener approach to their manufacturing processes than ever before. We at SeriousPuzzles.com are happy to announce that even your favorite pastime – puzzling – can be more earth-friendly! We proudly carry several brands of eco-friendly puzzles:
