I'm a meat eater who doesn't recycle all that often, so I am not up to speed on these issues at all.

Or, for that matter, just use old corks. Spring Chick is, as usual, an inspriation.

The very first letterboxers to plant in east TN carved the stamps from wood. It was a series of three and one of them was my first find. :)

The image was block letters, and would have been a breeze to carve into rubber, but was probably more time consuming to carve into wood.

Still, I thought I'd add this as an option and let you know it has been successful in the past.

I love carving stamps from cork. You can have a bunch of simple designs and have sophisticated combinations. Like a bunch of different flower and leaf stamps to make big garden. My friends save their wine corks for me for this reason.
