According to the American Greeting Card Association, 7 billion cards are purchased in the US annually. That’s a lot of paper and a lot of trees!
But there’s an environmentally friendly alternative: One Tree Per Card’s attractive cards with striking natural scenes that are completely carbon neutral – or even ‘carbon positive’, producing a net environmental benefit.
How is this possible? Simple – photographer/designer Phil Riebel has made a commitment to using only eco-friendly paper and inks. But here’s the big reason: one tree is planted for EVERY card purchased. In the battle against climate change, trees are among our greatest allies.
If you enjoy sending greeting cards to family and friends, show your commitment to our planet by going carbon neutral! Check out One Tree Per Card’s designs at http://www.carbonfreecards.com. (And they cost no more than brand name cards.)
