Ways We Give Back
Here are a few ways we try to give back to organizations putting in the work to help others in need and keep up with sustainability efforts as we run this small business.
One Tree Planted
From October 11th and for the rest of 2019 we donated $1 to plant a tree for each order placed in the shop with the non profit One Tree Planted (does not apply to orders placed on Etsy).
"According to data from the Global Forest Resource Assessment roughly 80,000 to 160,000 trees are cut down each day around the world with a significant percentage being used in the paper industry."
In 2019 we released three new stickers in the shop that we will or have donated 100% of profits to the following organizations:
- Planned Parenthood
- Sunrise Movement Education Fund
- Books Through Bars
In the past we have donated to: 350org.
Reducing Plastic Packaging
Most greeting cards are packaged individually in a single use cello bag. We have started to test different packaging options that are 100% recyclable, while also keeping our products safe during transit. To choose minimal plastic packaging for your order, like packing greeting cards together without plastic sleeves, check the corresponding box on the Cart page. At times products are already packaged in plastic bags to keep loose items together and for inventory/storage reasons, but we will do our best to prevent any further unnecessary plastic when packing your order if you opt in! All you have to do is check the box that says "Minimal plastic packaging please" to let us know!
Our greeting cards (and envelopes) are printed on FSC certified paper stock and contain Post Consumer Waste. We do our best to use recyclable packaging materials and may reuse packaging materials when we pack up your order in efforts to reduce waste!
♥ Thank YOU for your support that allows us to do our small part in making this world a little better! ♥
