That’s right get cash for your leaves instead of raking them all up! However, you may be able to get rid of some, and make some money from them too. According to the Connecticut Post, the website Cash 4 Leaves wants to give you…cash for your leaves!
While it may seem like a crazy idea, the company aims to collect maple leaves for their parent company Ship Foliage; with the weather being unusually warm, the amount of leaves – not surprisingly – has been very low. To fix this, Cash 4 Leaves is calling on New England residents to send them pristine maple leaves.
However, Cash 4 Leaves has pretty high standards. The website states each maple leaf must have no brown spots, mold, or other imperfections. In other words, they have to be pretty perfect. They even run it through two different tests.
If you do manage to find the perfect one, you can send it to them and get a dollar per leaf. When you find the perfect leaves to ship, follow their eight step process. Your leaves could become necklaces, coasters and other gifts.
