Do you like the idea of hanging a trophy animal head on your wall, but don’t like a dead animal staring you in the face all the time? Enter Cardboard Safari.

Cardboard Safari “is a tiny little company located in Charlottesville, Virginia.” This may be true, but the tiny company is making a big impact. Their products are trophy animal heads made from recycled cardboard. The heads come as flat sheets that the consumer assembles, much like the thin plywood animal puzzles of our youth. They even have full-bodied Rhinos!

So what kind of “big impact” is Cardboard Safari making? They’ve been spotted in Canada’s Style at Home magazine, on HGTV’s ColorSplash, and they are even entered into the Art in Place competition in their hometown to make a larger-than-life Rambling Robbie out of plate steel.

The products don’t promote the killing of animals in any way, and are a true cradle-to-cradle product – It’s made of recycled materials, the waste materials can be recycled, and the whole product can be recycled at the end of it’s life cycle. The company also supports the International Rhino Foundation.

I don’t know about you, but I’m planning on buying a deer head, bison head, moose head, rhino head…
