How to have an Eco-Friendly Christmas with Ecard Mint

We all love Christmas but the fact is our favourite festive period can have a pretty harmful impact on the environment. In the UK around 30% more waste is created at Christmas than throughout the rest of the year. And that’s not all, around 6 million Christmas trees and nearly 300,000 tonnes of packaging are thrown away every single year.

So how can we be more green this winter, here at the Ecard Mint HQ we have been scratching our head and coming up with all sorts of good ideas! Handmade gifts, recycled wrapping paper and switching to Ecards all top our list.

We are really happy that more and more people are aiming for a green Christmas this year, so much so that many of the retailers are starting to take notice and change their wasteful ways

Corporate ecards: why they (literally) won’t cost the earth

There is, without doubt, an increasing amount of pressure on companies to demonstrate that they have a comprehensive corporate environmental policy. Due to the increased research into carbon emissions and energy efficiency in the past decade, it is vital that all companies, big and small, are doing what they can to lessen their impact on the environment. Corporate ecards constitute a cost-effective and creative way of doing just this by helping companies to ‘go green.’

No resources are used to make electronic cards and, because they don’t need to travel by land, sea or air to be delivered, they are an effective way of keeping carbon footprints low by avoiding excess fuel consumption. Sending corporate ecards also fits perfectly into the ‘paperless office’ strategy which is being adopted by companies around the world. Moreover, not only are you helping the environment by sending ecards but you are also making your business partners, clients and customers aware of your green ethos: ecards are a great way to let your target audience know that you’re serious about the environment and hence are a good corporate citizen. Company environmental policies are no longer a nice to have, but a need to have – and they’re here to stay.

Be, and be seen to be, a good corporate citizen.

Think paperless.
