Greeting Cards During the Holidays - Go Green or Go Online 
(A Memory Tree)

Receiving greeting cards is part of our psyche. We don't send paper cards without a good reason: we seldom receive without them meaning something. They have higher emotional value than e-cards. Click here for more information, but if you're inclined to stick with traditional card buying, there's something that you can do to lesson the environmental impact:
  • Go Green - make environmentally friendly shopping choices and buy cards that are manufactured using recycled paper
  • Recycle - cards are easily re-used 
  • Only buy paper cards you actually will use
