Why You Should Send Environmentally Friendly Cards

It seems like everywhere we turn we are being asked to reuse and recycle and for a good reason. Everywhere we look there are plastic bottles, shredded paper, and cans. Small changes can make all the difference in the world. It is not just about separating your garbage but think about the different areas that can expand to. For example, the mail we receive is normally printed on one side; why not use the backside as scrap paper? The cans of which we have already occupied its contents can be used for several different things, pencil holders, clip holders, for separating your utensils.

Now, let’s take it a step further and buy items we normally use from companies that take the extra step to make our world more environmentally friendly. In saying that, we normally send birthday cards and greeting cards during the holidays; why not purchase them from The Gallery Collection? Their envelopes are made from 100% recycled paper and even some of their cards as well. The paper that these cards were made from is manufactured at a mill that uses wind-generated, renewable energy. I don’t know about you, but I already feel good about buying my cards from The Gallery Collection.

For most of my life I have been recycling; instead of throwing out our greeting cards we receive throughout the year I place them on the curb with our newspapers. These will be re recycled.

If environmentally friendly cards are an option why not go with them? One of the reasons my company has always used Gallery Collection is because they are environmentally friendly – and the cards are beautiful too!

Given the choice (and there are MANY) send a card that is environmentally friendly. Mother earth will thank you!

I love how the Gallery Collection cards state on the back that they are made from renewable energy and recycled paper! And the cards are such a great quality, too.

I recycle a lot. I feel a sense of guilt when I do not recycle. I think if everyone opt to recycle the environment will be happy.

Anything that we can do to preserve our planet is great! These cards are a great way to be eco friendly while sending a nice greeting card.

I’ve been purchasing cards from The Gallery Collection for years now so hearing this is definitely more of a reason I will continue to purchase my cards from them.

Environmental awareness is more important than ever these days, nice to see a company taking their impact into consideration!

Recycling is so very important. The only scrap paper in my house is being recycled from something else we no longer need or use. Recycled holiday cards are a great idea – hope to see more of them. And of course my cards go into the recycling bin at the end of the season. Think about all the trees being saved by using and recycling paper & cards.

We have to save the earth. Let’s do this thing!

Recycling is important but even recycled materials all end up in the dump eventually. It’s more important to stop using things that have a short life at this point since many areas of the country are reaching close to full capacity in their landfills. I wish companies would start thinking about how to make their materials biodegradable. Regular paper normally is considered biodegradable so you can just add it to your compost instead of throwing it in the trash where it will take much longer to decompose.

I recycle all my Christmas cards by crossing off my name and putting someone else’s name on them. It saves me money, and it saves the planet!

This is actually a really awesome. It’s great for the enviornment and makes you feel good knowing you’re helping save the world a little bit. I wish all cards were enviornmentally friendly .

when the kids were little, after the holidays they got the old cards to use as scrap paper when doing homework and before that my little guys loved to doodle on anything and everything. Recycling my holiday and birthday cards for that was a great idea!

I love that The Gallery Collection uses wind-generated energy to manufacture their cards, and that the envelopes and many of the cards are made from recycled paper. I agree let’s try to reuse paper either as scrap paper or for crafts whenever we can! According to https://www.conserve-energy-future.com/various-recycling-facts.php, “Recycling helps to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills and as a result less harmful emissions like methane gas are released into the earth’s atmosphere.” Let’s all make it a priority for future generations to come!
