With all the controversies surrounding the use of paper and its manner of production, this should not stop people from doing business and handing out their personal cards. But while we all know that the source of business cards are the usual paper and cardboards that make use of trees and other natural resources prior to printing, using eco-friendly or recycled paper is a great way to go green for starters.
All you need is clear paper to which you can print your personal information and surely a lot of recycled paper can do the job for you.
Printing business cards is cheap these days — sometimes even free. But what about eco-friendly cards? The kind I want didn’t seem too complex: Just 500 cards on recycled paper made from 100% post-consumer waste (PCW), printed with veggie-based inks, at a not-outrageous price. Ideally, I also wanted a local company to print them up for me.
