Make it a Green Christmas

Each year there are millions of Christmas greeting cards sent. These cards use many tons of cardboard and paper and only some of them will be recycled. Let’s choose an alternative way to send out Christmas greetings.

Here are a few ideas to consider:

  • choose recycled paper Christmas cards
  • use recovered-fibre envelopes and labels for the cards
  • try environmentally friendly packaging
  • pick a printing company which uses soy ink printing and emission free mills powered by wind power
  • plant a tree as a way to help rebuild the forests
  • send an electronic Christmas card instead

While the electronic Christmas card may not be as exciting as getting an envelope in the mail, it really is helping our planet. It has been our preferred choice and will be again this year.

Enjoy your Green Christmas!
