Recycled greeting cards – I knew they had to be out there. We go through so many cards in our house, mostly used as Thank You notes for birthdays and gifts. I had hoped I would find a recycled paper option. And… I did!
Simple idea: buy cards made from recycled paper
I found these adorable ones on Amazon. As much as it pains me, I end up doing 95% of my shopping on Amazon. Amazon itself, I like. But I don’t like the way it hurts small business. The problem at hand is I always seem to wait until the last minute, and stuff ships to me within a day. A day! This is certainly a luxury of living in the middle of Los Angeles, and I certainly need to cut myself off… maybe.
I get SO excited when I find an ethical, good quality product on Amazon that I’m making it my mission to find those products and share them with you. I think (hope) more and more small businesses are finding a way to get on there. The margins are really tough.
So Thank You notes… Thus far, I’ve managed to funnel Miya and Bauer’s energy into writing thank you notes after a party or Christmas. I’m hoping I can keep that up as the years grow on and their lives become busier. Check in with me in 10 years…
Do you have your kids write Thank You notes?
These cards are adorable. The artist is clearly talented. I love the slightly rough texture to them – it makes you really notice, and feel, the paper. The colors are bright and vibrant, yet the printing of the cards captures the uneven color the artist used to make them. I honestly think you’ll love them.
Twigs® is an eco friendly stationary business located in New Jersey. They make their stationary from 100% recycled materials and eco inks. And everything is fully made in the USA. Woohoo! There isn’t much info about the business online, but it does say that they have diverted 7000+ pounds of waste so far. So that’s pretty darn awesome! In addition, the packaging has this helpful info.
If you’re interested in these recycled greeting cards, you can find them here. They have tons of cute animal designs, but they also have simple patterns in both bright and muted colors. I’d love to hear which is your favorite.
