"Greene" Holiday Greetings


The holidays are around the corner (look for the launch of TreeHugger’s 2006 Gift Guide) and for those that send out holiday cards check out Greene Street Greetings before you search anywhere else. We love the photography that Greene Street uses to capture the spirit on each card (and you can send your own in as well), but what we like even more is how environmentally responsible they are. Greene Street’s cards are printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper that's processed chlorine-free. They employ digital and traditional offset printing methods and only use toxic-free soy and vegetable based inks. In addition, Greene Street is eco-fueled with a website that is hosted on a solar and wind powered server and other energy overhead is offset by Terrapass carbon credits. If you're located in Manhattan you can take advantage of their carbon-free bicycle messenger delivery. Greene Street Greetings donates 1% of its annual profits to the New York Restoration Project and other environmental organizations, plus they are a member of 1% for the Planet. ::Greene Street Greetings
