What perfect timing for one of our reviewers to review a pack of Christmas Cards from Earth Greetings. Each pack contains 10 blank cards with envelopes; 5 each of 2 designs. This year the designs have been inspired by Australian bush flora and fauna featuring an artists interpretations of wattle, cockatoos, gum nuts and kangaroos just to name a few.
These gorgeous boxed Christmas Cards are Australian made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and are printed with vegetable based ink. Every pack of Christmas Cards sold plants a tree through Earth Greetings donation to Trees For Life of $1.65 per pack sold.
Honestly, sometime I feel recycled paper can look dull, the printed ink is not bright on the paper and it is scratchy to write on. The Christmas Cards from Earth Greetings are none of these things I am very happy to say. I love the illustrations, they are the perfect mix between Christmas and Australia and would make great cards to send overseas. The vegetable based ink is bright, clear and in Christmas colours, love that! The inside of the Christmas cards were a surprise to me because it was crisp white in colour and smooth to write on. I was extremely happy by that as I didn't want my words to be hard to see on a background of 'grey' paper.
On the back of the Christmas cards there is a little blurb about Tree of Life which I feel is nice for the recipient to read about; they may purchase their own Earth Greeting Christmas Cards next year.
Although we didn't purchase these Christmas Cards from Earth Greetings, I did feel that because these cards are very environmentally friendly, printed carbon neutral in Australia and part of the proceeds have been donated to Tree of Life; 'I' have supported something very special and positive to help Australia and not to mention the Aussie business Earth Greetings.
These Christmas cards RRP $15.95 per pack and are available from selected stockist and online at Earth Greetings. Also, at Earth Greetings is flat Christmas wrapping paper and Christmas gift tag, all of which match these gorgeous Christmas cards.
Make sure you have a good look around Earth Greetings website, not only is it aesthetically appealing but they have plenty of gorgeous 'earth friendly' products at great prices.
