The Eco Friendly Card Co. ‘Swifts’ Greetings Card
The Eco Friendly Card Co. have a real passion for good design and also the environment
They’ve always had a passion for the environment and much of their inspiration is quite literally drawn from nature. The environmental journey started back in the mid 90’s when they switched to the exclusive use of 100% recycled envelopes. The logic was simple; why cut down trees to make envelopes that will only make one journey before they are ripped open, screwed up and thrown away?
They have moved on a long way since then. They were the first publisher to switch to compostable packaging back in 2006, and the first direct-to-retail publisher to obtain FSC® certification. In 2008, they became the UK’s first CarbonNeutral® greetings card company and won Gold for environmental best practice in printing and publishing at the Green Apple Awards.
They also scooped top prize in the product category at the BCE Environmental Leadership Awards in 2010. They are always looking for ways to minimise their environmental impact
