6 Eco- Friendly Holiday Cards

holiday card pack Doodle Greetings

This weekend I am sitting down to address my Christmas cards and get them ready to be mailed out.

This year I’m not sending out a whole lot of cards; these days I send a lot of electronic greetings to those who I have email addresses for. However for family and people whose emails I don’t have I still send old fashioned greetings along with photos of the kids.

I do try to opt for the more eco-friendly greeting cards by choosing those made from recycled paper or even tree free paper.

Wondering where you can snag some eco-greetings? Check out these Earth-friendly finds.
