Eco-Friendly Holiday Greeting Cards

This weekend I am sitting down to address my Christmas cards and get them ready to be mailed out. At least that’s one thing that is one my to-do list. It may or may not get done.

This year I am not sending out a whole lot of cards, these days I send a lot of electronic greetings to those who I have email addresses for. However for family and people whose emails I do not have I still send old fashioned greetings along with photos of the kids.

I do try to opt for the more eco-friendly greeting cards by choosing those made from recycled paper or even tree free paper.

Wondering where you can find these eco-greetings?

Check out:
