If you want to tell your Dad how much you love him with an eco friendly Father’s Day card this year, there are plenty of options, from plantable cards with seeds embedded in the paper to cards made of recycled materials, or the ultimate earth-friendly choice, an ecard.
If you want to give your Dad an eco friendly card this year, one fun alternative is a plantable greeting card from botanicalpaperworks.com. The card is made of 100% post-consumer waste and it is embedded with North American wildflower seeds. Once your Dad has enjoyed the card, you can plant it in the garden and the wildflowers will grow, reminding him how much you care all summer long. To see and purchase the card go to www.botanicalpaperworks.com.
Etsy also has lovely, earth friendly plantable cards. The one at www.etsy.com, Love card would be a good choice for Father’s Day. Both the card and envelope are made of handmade mint green paper embedded with poppy seeds. On the front is a photograph (attached with removable adhesive so that it can be removed) of the beach with LOVE written in the sand. The inside can be inscribed with a personal Father’s Day message.
The Fatherhoodie card is an eco friendly greeting on super luxe, 30% post-consumer recycled paper. It is printed with rich, earth-friendlier soy ink and comes with a matching white, recycled envelope. To see and purchase the card go to www.redstamp.comFatherhoodie-Father-s-Day-Card-Seltzer.
Another eco friendly card alternative for Father’s Day is an ecard. There is a selection of 146 colorful ecards at greeting-cards.com, including cards from a wife, son or daughter, cards for a grandfather as well as a father, and general Father’s Day greeting cards. Add a personal message to your card. When downloaded by Dad on his computer, his card will be accompanied by music. For example the Starfish card comes with a bouncy calypso beat (go to greeting-cards.com/ecards/Starfish Father’s Day card to see and hear it).
If your Dad is an outdoorsman, he might enjoy an ecard with a picture of Alaskan wildlife on the front. Those at www.awimages.com feature bears and wolves in the wild. The process to personalize and send a card is easy. Add a heading (if you’d like), a signature and a message, select some music and a stamp, and send your card.
Prairie Frontier also has a good selection of Father’s Day ecards with such traditional images as sailboats, cars, golfers, and wildlife. Personalize the card you choose with a message, add music and send. To see the Prairie Frontier selection, go to www.prairiefrontier.com.
