Green Your Valentine's Day: Caring Cards

Recycled Valentine's Day cardOn Valentine's Day, don't forget to extend your love to Mother Earth. This week's tips should help you do just that, even as you celebrate the biggest Hallmark holiday there is.

Tip #4: Go for greener greetings. 

When you consider all that's needed to manufacture Valentine's Day cards — trees, water, bleach, dye, transportation, and shipping — and the fact that many of them ultimately end up in the landfill, making your own cards and envelopes and buying recycled (Papyrus and Hallmark have both made strides toward this) start to sound like pretty good ideas. Consider e-cards too: PaperlessPost.com and Pingg offer some great designs. 

Tell us: Where do you shop for greeting cards?
