Eco-Friendly

In my personal life and within my business I am always trying to be as eco-friendly as possible.

Eco Facts About my Products

  1. The envelopes that accompany my greeting cards is made with 100% recycled content.
  2. I use Eco Clear bags to package greeting cards. They are made from plants and are also commerically compostable, I also use this type of packaging for all prints.
  3. My mailers are made by EcoEnclose. They are made with 90% post-consumer content and are FULLY recyclable and naturally biodegradable. In the instance I cannot fit it in eco-enclose mailers, we reuse bigger mailers, boxes, and other packaging. We save all packaging from shipments so we can reuse as much as we can.
Other Earth Friendly Facts
  1. We try to re-use as much packaging as we receive, if not we recycle or find other uses for it, or pass it along to other small businesses. 
  2. We LOVE washi tape and stamps to decorate packages and for branding, instead of non recylable stickers and thank you notes that will just get tossed. We also do not put any business cards or extra packaging because it will just end up in a landfill.
  3. We try our best to reduce our waste as much as we can. If a product has a slight imperfection, instead of tossing it we regular have sales, do mystery packs with b-grade stock, or donate! We are pairing up with a local nursing home in Freeport to donate misprinted, updated artwork, or discontinued branding cards to their activites director. Know of any other orgainzation we could donate cards or stickers too? Shoot us an email.
