E cards: the greenest greetings

As we advance into an ever more technological age, choosing the perfect card for our loved ones has become less of a chore and more of a joy. There was a time when it would take simply ages of looking through rack upon rack of greetings cards until you found a suitable offering for the recipient. With the advent of e cards, the perfect card is just a click away.

E cards have many benefits; they can be customized, personalised and some are even animated. However, perhaps one of the biggest benefits of e cards is that they are environmentally friendly.

In this day and age, we must all take looking after the environment seriously. We now know some of the real dangers of not doing so. That is why using websites such as EcO2 to send green e cards is such a great idea. As e cards are sent electronically, no trees have to be felled to produce them. This is great news for the many rainforests and the creatures who make their home there.

Producing cards also takes up a lot of energy in the process and so by sending an e card instead of a traditional card, you are also using less energy and releasing less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which will benefit future generations.The marginal environmental impact of the e card is based on having a computer on!

E cards are getting more popular with time and it is easy to see why. They are well designed, colourful and vibrant. They come in a variety of styles and are available for a staggering number of occasions including New Year and Christmas.
