Eco-Friendly Card Choices

Making sustainable greeting cards part of your collection…

“Can your greeting cards be recycled?” It’s one of the most common questions we’re asked about our cards, and the answer is “Yes!” If you’ve ever wondered about the eco-footprint of the greeting cards you’re stocking and want to make a greener choice, then switching to Paperlink cards could be a great option. Our eco-friendly greeting cards are stunning, stylish and sustainable, so you can feel good about the cards you’re stocking in your shop.

The Importance of Eco-Friendly Greeting Cards

Everyone is talking about sustainability, and for good reason. With each passing day, the earth’s call for eco-conscious choices grows louder. Greeting cards are all about celebrating, and this should be done guilt free with no worries about damaging the planet. By choosing to stock eco-friendly cards in your shop, you’re not just spreading joy; you’re contributing to a healthier world.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

At Paperlink we’re serious about sustainability. We partner with the World Land Trust to save endangered forests around the globe and helped protect over 12,000m2 of critically threatened tropical forests in 2023 alone. Our use of Carbon Balanced Paper has offset the equivalent of over 60,000kg of carbon dioxide. 100% of our cards are recyclable, ethically sourced, sustainably produced and FSC accredited. Reducing single-use plastic is another of our key goals and we are proud to offer over 99% of our designs clasped, as an eco-friendly alternative to cello-wrapping. Find out more on our About Us page.

Cards Designed & Created in the UK

Half of the UK’s true carbon footprint comes from goods manufactured abroad and imported into the UK. With this in mind it’s a positive that 100% of our greeting cards and envelopes have always been printed and manufactured right here in the UK. 

Educating Your Customers

Providing information in your store or on your website about the eco-friendly nature of the cards you stock is a great way to educate customers. By telling your customers about the importance of sustainable choices and the positive impact of choosing eco-friendly cards, you’ll be demonstrating that you offer something extra.

How to Recycle our Greeting Cards

High-street greeting cards often contain embellishments, glitter, ribbons, or foiling that cannot be recycled, making it difficult to know how to dispose of them. At Paperlink, we use recyclable materials in our cards and even our foiled designs can be recycled in a normal paper recycling bin.

Making Informed Choices for a Greener Tomorrow

By deciding to stock our sustainable cards you’ll be making a greener choice for your store, one that aligns with both your values and your customers’ values. You can easily explore and order all our sustainable cards online. Our user-friendly website ensures that making eco-friendly choices for your shop is a breeze. If you’d prefer to see someone in person though, just get in touch and we’ll send one of our experienced reps out to you. By opting for eco-friendly cards, you're not just sending sentiments; you're sending a powerful message of care for the planet. You're showing your customers that you value sustainability and are committed to making choices that protect the environment. By working together, we can make a positive impact, one eco-friendly card at a time. 💌🌿
