Envirocard

Sending seasons greeting cards to each other is a great practice and help people keep in touch. However the tons of greeting cards can create environmental problems. What do most people do after the season is over? The bulk of it will end up in the waste bins, and eventually in the dump sites. At the dump sites , the ink from the cards may even eventually contaminate the ground water. Recycle? That is a better option, but has its problem too. The process require lots of energy, chemicals and water. The ink ends up in the waste water. What are our alternatives. One can send electronic cards instead.

E-cards. No trees chopped down, no paper to dispose of, no water pollution.......

Agreed. Just about anything can be used to generate those greetings. Calender pages..cartons..."old" cards...anything. Just add YOUR touch

The idea of ecards as an alternative to paper cards is a very good idea. I am surprised, though, that of all the ecard choices you listed, you left out the most (imho) environmentally aware of them all.

Which, you ask? Care2, that's who!

That's a neat idea, reusable cards.

Have you looked at this site? www.AcornStudios.ca

They make environmentally friendly cards using recycled bits and pieces, and tree-free paper. Pretty cool stuff :)
