There’s something happening in the specialty cards and paper biz that’s very exciting. Paper Culture, an environmentally conscious online stationary store, is planting a tree for every order they receive. Yup, every one. Their goal is to plant 1 million trees in a US national forest by the year 2020, a publicity stunt with a green heart.
In addition to “planting their trees where their mouth is”, they also follow through with eco-friendly stationary and wall decor products. Here’s a quick “green” low-down:
- All cards and envelopes are 100% post-consumer recycled
- They use only recycled paper for packaging
- The company is CarbonFree
If you’d like to consciously capture a loved one in art, try Paper Culture’s new Eco-Bamboo Wall Art. Because this grass grows as much as 4 feet a day, it’s a fantastically renewable resource and looks beautiful to boot. There is a range of fun, colorful, modern designs and can be personalized with your own photos, name or custom logo. How eco-cool!
