More information about Tree-Free
The Tree-Free mission is to be the most transparent, most environmentally-friendly greeting card company on the planet. The company was founded in 1999 with a millennial eye toward artful simplicity, sustainability, and social impact.
Contrary to conventional greeting cards with flowery sentiments, elaborate print techniques, and ever-rising prices, Tree-Free has quickly gained a following for its simple yet artfully vibrant style, our groundbreaking use of sustainable materials (including kenaf, hemp, wheat straw, and sugarcane waste), and an ability to deliver quality paired with value. With millions of cards sent yearly, Tree-Free saves over 3000 mature trees, 1.5 million gallons of water, 2 million BTUs of energy, and 210,000 pounds of greenhouse gases annually.
After 20 years, they have set our aspirations on leading our industry to new heights where every card sent is not just a pretty vehicle for a personal message. Each card will deliver a positive impact to a broader community. They are donating 25% of all revenue (not just profits). Rather than choose a few causes that we care about, we have created a system to fund the community efforts and causes championed by each of our customers. Meanwhile, they continue to lead the industry with sustainable production right here in the USA – keeping our forests full of trees to create shade, transform carbon, and enhance the air we breathe.
