Paper Culture is committed to sustainable production, pledging that it won't cut down any existing trees to create their cards. Instead, the cards are either made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper or alternative non-tree fibers. The paper company also launched its own sustainability initiative called
Cards to Trees, where a tree is planted for every order placed (the customer can also dedicate it to anyone they want), with the hope of eventually planting one million trees.
Bella Figura offers beautiful wedding invitations that are also sustainable thanks to materials that include 100 percent tree-free papers and vegetable-oil and citrus-based solvent inks. Beyond that, the company recycles everything used to create the invitations (to reduce waste in landfills), uses wind-powered energy at their headquarters and donates surplus paper to art teachers. Bella Figura also encourages customers to donate a tree upon placing their order, which the company matches. Seriously, this company does everything.
Choose the eco-friendly invitation option at Tiny Prints for pretty designs that use recycled papers. The company also has a partnership with
American Forests to restore parts of the Deschutes National Forest in Oregon that were affected in a lightning fire in 2012, helping plant pine and fir trees across an amazing 2,000 acres in the forest. Just think, you can order paper goods and contribute to forest growth at the same time!
