Environmentally Friendly Greeting Cards

Environmentally Friendly Greeting Cards

From illness to birthday, you want your loved ones to know you’re thinking of them. So, when it comes time to express your feelings, you want the right card that will say everything that, well, sometimes you just can’t say. With so many options to choose from, you can’t help but worry about the impact those greeting cards are making on our environment. When choosing gifts or cards for loved ones, it’s important to find something that is unique as well as environmentally conscious.

Here at The Corner Shoppe, we take our products and our environment seriously, which is why we offer environmentally friendly greeting card selections. The companies that we work with use recycled or post-consumer waste along with environmentally friendly bio fuels or wind power to produce the perfect card for you to send, book for you to read and other paper products as well.

A portion of the profits will go towards feeding hungry children in the U.S. and all over the world. We also offer a variety of books from children’s to historical books about our area written by local authors.
