sustainability for snail mail.

Remember this post from a while back about snail mail where I encouraged you to send a card or letter to a loved one? Well, first off – did you? If not, you should! And now you can do so while being green! I’ve recently come across a few eco-friendly snail mail items that I simply had to share :)

First up – Night Owl Paper Goods. They have a whole range of green greeting cards (along with other stationery-type items) made from 100% reclaimed and recycled cotton, or sustainably harvested yellow birch wood – all of which boast very fun and unique prints!  Here are two of my faves (out of many):

Second, Waste Not Paper note sets. They are made of 100% recycled cotton and envelopes made of at least 30% post-consumer waste paper. Available at Barnes & Noble in various designs!

Third, the Green Inspired brand sold exclusively at Target. All of the products are made with soy-based ink and use chlorine-free processing for whitening the paper. Not to mention they are very affordable! I bought a few packs of their blank cards so I always have cards on hand to send.

Lastly, the USPS “Go Green” stamp collection. The stamps offer tips for conserving resources and helping maintain an ecologically healthy environment. What a fun and simple way to raise awareness of going green!

So now not only can you make someone’s day by sending a little snail mail their way, but you can also do so while being green and promote sustainability in the process! :) Simply chic – sustainable style!

  1. I once got a card for my birthday that was super cool… part of the card had seeds in it, so all you had to do was plant the paper card and water it, and a plant would grow!
