Recycled Cards: Make Something Beautiful With Trash

Happy Earth Day!
On Earth Day, we like to celebrate all things eco-friendly. Here at Pear Tree Greetings, we do what we can by creating most of our cards from 100% post consumer recycled paper. Sounds good, right? But what exactly is post consumer recycled paper?

Well, instead of making our signature card stock from wood pulp (trees) we make it from the recycled paper that you send to your recycling bins every week. That means we’re not killing new trees to make our paper, and we’re keeping it out of the landfills.

What’s cool is that when we say 100% post consumer recycled, that means all of it. Not just a little bit, like others claim. Most paper products labeled “recycled” are made from waste created by the paper and printing industries (pulp, scraps, trimmings and other material that has not been used by you or me) which may be good business for the company, but is not really considered recycling.
