There’s no denying the fact that consumers are becoming more aware of the importance of environmental issues and this is having an impact on their shopping habits. Increasingly, people are seeking providers of goods and services that demonstrate a responsible approach towards the planet.
With this in mind, you might benefit from swapping your traditional paper greeting cards for holiday ecards for business. These offerings can have a much lower carbon footprint and they’re a great way to show you’re thinking about green issues.
One of the big problems facing the planet is deforestation. Because of the rising global population and increasing demand from industry, many major forests are shrinking at a worrying rate.
Contributing to this trend are the ten billion plus greetings cards produced each year. This causes annual deforestation amounting to hundreds of thousands of trees.
The planet’s lungs
Not only does this leave big scars on once picturesque pieces of land, it also affects the composition of the planet’s atmosphere. Trees play an important role in producing oxygen and reducing carbon dioxide (CO2). Of course, as animals we depend on oxygen for our survival.
Also, a rise in CO2 contributes to the greenhouse effect, causing global temperatures to rise.
Info like this may put you off spending your firm’s cash on greetings cards. The good news is, you don’t have to give up on the idea of wishing your customers well. In fact, you can kill two birds with one stone.
By sending business ecards with us here at eCO2 Greetings, you can ensure you’re not contributing to deforestation and, because we will plant trees on behalf of your organisation when you make purchases with us, you can ensure you’re contributing to the environment in a positive way.
Offsetting tonnes of CO2
We plant trees with a number of chosen suppliers, who are all non-profit organisations. They place the trees in cities and woodland locations around the world, often in conjunction with other charitable organisations.
Each of the trees will offset around one tonne of CO2 throughout their lifetimes and they will also help ensure that natural habitats for wildlife are retained and areas are protected from flooding.
We even provide you with the opportunity to buy extra trees with your business holiday e cards and this will be clearly shown on the communications.
Great news for the planet and your bottom line
By engaging in responsible purchases like this, you can rest assured you’re doing that little bit more to protect the planet.
Also, your firm’s bottom line may benefit. After all, ensuring that people see your company as responsible and eco-friendly could have a hugely positive impact on your overall prospects.
