Eco Friendly Gifts & Recycled Birthday Cards


eco friendly gifts

My 100% recycled birthday cards and eco friendly gifts, aim to put a smile on peoples faces with funny food puns and characters. I post everything out in the UK and worldwide using plastic free packaging.


I am an eco conscious, vegan illustrator. Always looking to make improvements to have the least impact possible on the environment with everything I do in my life. Check out my environmental choices and process below.



100% Recycled Birthday Cards


My greeting and birthday cards are now all printed on uncoated stock and made from 100% recycled card, which can be recycled or reused afterwards.

I always print the greeting cards out at home to save on unnecessary ink usage and storing of excessive stock; saving on waste. This also means I fold and score the cards by hand which is saving on energy from a machine in a factory.


The colourful envelopes I provide with the recycled greeting cards are all FSC environmental approved; which comes from sustainable sources where they grow more trees to replace ones that are cut down and it is also fully recyclable afterwards.

Eco friendly card posting materials


When I post my eco friendly birthday cards and vegan gifts out I use compostable tape. This avoids using either adhesive labels or plastic sticky tape, which is still very commonly used.


I also use recycled woodland trust paper to put the postage address on, instead of sticky plastic labels from a label machine

Vegan Gifts in eco friendly packaging


It's not just my greeting cards which have plastic free packaging and eco friendly options.


When it comes to sending out my vegan gifts, I also use recycled, eco friendly box packaging filled with shredded filler and recycled paper. I always reused other packaging from products that I myself have bought.


When I launch new vegan gift ideas and products, using eco friendly packaging is just as important to me as the item itself.

Plastic free badges


Here is a new eco friendly product I launched for 2021 in the UK. These are plastic free button badges and are made from wood and corn starch. They are also made using solar energy, and are compostable with the metal pin on the back being recyclable.


My button badges are great eco friendly accessories for sending to an eco warrior and spreading awareness about plastic free options.
