Mother's Day / Holiday, Birthday, Thank You Cards

For mother's day or any holiday, I usually like to send cards to friends and family. They say Americans alone discard 4 million tons of paper per year which would be equivalent to building a 12 foot wall all the way from New York to California. That's a lot of paper! I used to go to the Grocery store and buy a card and a gift card for people, on those special holidays and events.

So instead, come every holiday or special event, I like to send e-cards to friends and family from American Greetings. At American Greetings, you can send an ecard attached with a gift card! You can sign up to send ecards from many places, but my husband and I use the American Greetings site. They are currently offering a one month free trial, and if you wish to keep your membership it is $19.99 for 1 year! You can send unlimited e-cards to anyone. It's less than $1.75 per month. We find it to be worth it just for the cost alone because if you go to the store, you'll spend at least $3.00 to $5.00 per card, and not to mention the postage you have to put on the envelope. They have many varieties of cards for any occasion. We have also sent numerous Thank You notes to people through this service instead of sending one in the mail. A card might be something small... but every little bit that we do can go a long way to preserve the earth.
