What's the Environmental Impact of Paper Christmas Cards? Unwrapping the Green Truth


Greetings, holiday revellers and eco-conscious elves! ‘Tis the season to be jolly, but also the season to consider the impact of our festive traditions on our dear planet. One tradition under the eco-friendly microscope today: the classic paper Christmas card. Let’s unwrap the green truth and explore the environmental impact of these seasonal sendables.


Chapter 1: Trees vs. Greetings: The Paper Predicament

Picture this: a majestic pine tree, tall and proud, transformed into a stack of holiday cards. While paper Christmas cards capture the essence of the season, they do come at the cost of trees. Yes, those splendid trees are a finite resource, and we’re sending them out by the dozen in the form of heartfelt greetings.


Chapter 2: Energy-Intensive Production: Santa’s Naughty List

The process of making paper cards isn’t exactly as magical as Santa’s workshop. It’s energy-intensive, involving tree felling, transportation, and manufacturing. In short, the creation of paper cards makes Santa’s naughty list in terms of carbon footprint.


Chapter 3: Card Disposal Dilemma: Landfill Limbo

Now, let’s talk about what happens after the holidays. Once the tinsel is gone and the mistletoe droops, those well-loved cards often find themselves in the landfill, adding to the holiday hangover. They’re like the ghost of Christmas past, haunting our planet long after the festivities are over.


Chapter 4: eCO2 Greetings: The Hero in a Digital Cape
