Holiday Cards With a Purpose

The holidays are quickly approaching and many businesses prefer to send cards via mail rather than e-cards. A business can still pursue its sustainability goals through the purchase of socially- and/or environmentally-friendly holiday cards.

Here are just some of the places to find just the right cards to support your sustainability efforts. Cards that are socially- and/or environmentally-friendly can be purchased through Gifts With Humanity, Green Field Paper Company, Kidbean, Global Exchange, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Ten Thousand Villages, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Cool People Care, World Wildlife Fund, The Literacy Site, The Rainforest Site, Real Goods, and Hammond Greetings & Promotions.

For a very extensive list of the environmental attributes of a variety of cards and/or the social causes supported through the purchase of the cards, please visit Conservatree.

Hmmmm....not completely sure about this. Seems more and more business are starting to send e-cards over print cards. reason's include businesses wanting to 'go green', save money when budgets are tight, create a more memorable experience for recipients.

We do a lot of B2B and I hate when I get those really cheap e-cards with some amateur animation and blippy sound track.

Last year, we sent out a really nice business e-card for the holidays - designed by a company called PMG, that has corporate holiday ecards.
