Why eCards Are More Environmentally Friendly

We’re recycling, we’re shopping with reusable bags, we’re using public transportation: We are an environmentally aware bunch of people. Three cheers for Mother Earth and us! But we’re not perfect, right? Sometimes we trash when we could have recycled, or forget the bags at home, and maybe we haven’t gotten around to buying that pricey hybrid. But we’re trying our best to save the planet where can, and we’re always looking for ways to do more. So, what are we doing? Still sending old fashioned, tree-consuming paper cards to our friends and family. Let’s take our communications into the green of the 21st century, and discover why Doozy eCards are more environmentally friendly.Cut Down Waste Not Trees

When we buy greeting cards for birthdays, anniversaries and holidays, we don’t typically think of all of the trees that are cut down to make those cards. After all, we’re not the ones cutting them down, right? But did you know that roughly 2.65 billion Christmas cards are sold in the U.S. every year, enough to fill a football field ten stories high? Think of how many trees are required to make that many cards, which are only used once. If each of us sent one less card, we could save 50,000 cubic yards of paper! And just think how many trees we could save if we switched over to using eCards for all of the greetings we send throughout the year.

Faster, Lighter and Greener

In addition to all of the trees and paper you can save by using Doozy eCards, you can also cut down on the transportation required to send conventional cards. Just think of all of the fuel required to cut down trees, take them to the mill, convert them into paper, turn them into greeting cards, send them to the store, and mail them to your friends and family. Whew, that’s a lot of unnecessary fuel wasted! Now think of the minimal environmental impact of sending an eCard. There’s also the added bonus that your eCard is sent immediately, which is especially good news for those of us who procrastinate sending our greetings.

So, what are you waiting for?  Now that you know how much more environmentally friendly eCards are, be the Eco-hero you are and start sending some funny and thoughtful eCards. Go Green, Go Doozy!
