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!
