Eco friendly cards and stationery are the cat’s meow. Ask any eco conscious consumer and s/he will tell you the same thing. Eco friendly greeting cards is a rather broad term. Here are some of the most popular types of wholesale eco friendly greeting cards and what your eco conscious consumers would say to seeing them:
“It doesn’t matter what it used to be, a recycled greeting card might as well be made of gold.”
Recycled greeting cards are those that are made of recycled materials such as cardboard, paper and plastic. Depending on the original material, recycled greeting cards (greeting cards made of recycled products) can be more appealing than standard greeting cards! Give your eco friendly customers the choice between a greeting card made of colorful recycled plastic cookie packaging (it’s been done!) and a generic greeting card with no edgy appeal–the choice will always be the recycled greeting card.
“Offering plantable greeting cards is like planting a seed of eco friendliness.”
Plantable greeting cards can be planted in the ground. Just like seeded greeting cards, plantable greeting cards have seeds embedded in biodegradable paper. Once the paper has decomposed, the seeds are left and something beautiful blooms. It’s two gifts in one!
“Seeded greeting cards aren’t just growing in the ground–they’re growing in popularity!”
Seeded greeting cards are the same as plantable greeting cards. Both are printed on seed-embedded paper. Though these are the two most popular terms, you may also hear “plantable paper greeting cards” as well. Wholesale eco friendly greeting cards like these are great choices for the customers in your store that are “going green” or are going-going gone!
