Cards have been the bane of my life , (I mean greeting cards not gambling – that’s all in the past), as many come wrapped in icky plastic. So what are the alternatives?
I love my friends but I love the planet – what to do. I know you can send e cards but that’s just mean. No cards = no mates in my shallow social circles….
Look harder….there are unwrapped cards available. The post office in Marsh, Huddersfield sells them loose, and our Tescos had a lot of unwrapped cards… which surprised me. So, I heard, does Hallmark.
Responsibly Made Cards
but if you can’t find what you want, try Etsy – art cards in compostable PLA cornstarch bags.
Check these out Bradford based company – Great Valentines day cards and plastic free good loving.

Nice ….but sadly crafts are plasticky what with the glue, felt tips, glitter and packaging.
