Go reusable this Christmas!

Christmas is a time for giving and receiving gifts, but it’s also a time when we generate a lot of waste. One of the biggest contributors to this waste is the use of single-use non-recycled greeting cards. Every year, billions of Christmas cards are sent and received, and most of them end up in landfills.  Go reusable this Christmas with sustainable Christmas cards and eco Christmas gifts.

The Problem with Non-Recycled Christmas Cards

There are many reasons why non-recycled Christmas cards are not sustainable – they are made from paper and the production of paper is a water- and energy-intensive process that contributes to climate change. Also, many single-use Christmas cards are made with glitter and other embellishments that are not recyclable. This means that they end up in landfill, where they can take hundreds of years to decompose.

The Benefits of Reusable Christmas Cards

Greentings reusable Christmas cards are a more sustainable alternative to non-recycled single-use cards. These sustainable Christmas cards are made from thick recycled stock with removable inserts that can be used year after year. This reduces the need to produce new cards each year, which saves resources and reduces waste.

This helps to reduce the demand for new paper and further protects the environment.
