Greener Holiday Cards

I still love the holiday photo cards at MangoInk.

However, they do allow you to upload your own photo, then they will work with you to turn that into your own holiday greeting cards. The bonus here is that you are not restricted to a single, non-fold cardstock — you can create single-fold cards with your own photos, which allows you much more room for a personalized greeting.

What is really great about these cards, however, is just how green they are.

These cards are made from 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper. The inks they use for printing are toxic-free soy and vegetable derived inks.

The company runs its website on a server which is powered by solar and wind power. And if that wasn’t enough, they purchase carbon-offset credits from Terrapass for additional energy overhead.

So, if you’re looking to go green this holiday season, check them out.

    This is a good post. Using Green Cards is so important. There’s even a Greeting Card Service that will allow you to use your own photos, and your own handwriting on their site, they print them stuff them, stamp them and take them to the post office for you.
