How well do the processes inherent in the manufacturing, packaging and distribution of this product sustain nature?

Biospherically Correct

Our greeting card packs incorporate two important milling/manufacturing criteria:

  1. Pulp processing from PCF, TCF, or ECF mills (in that order preferably- see below) 
  2. The use of vegetable based inks to ensure low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs -see Green Ingredients).
  • PCF means "processed chlorine free" (includes recycled and virgin fibre bleached without chlorine or chlorine compounds)
  • TCF means 'totally chlorine free' (non toxic bleaching processes for virgin fibre e.g oxygen, peroxide, and ozone bleaching)
  • EFC means "elementally chlorine free" (free of chlorine in its elemental form, avoiding the formation of dioxins and other toxins)

  • "A mill using standard chlorine bleaching (elemental chlorine) realeases about 35 tonnes of organochlorines (dioxins and chlorinated toxic pollutants) a day. An ECF releases 7-10 tons per day, a PCF or TCF mill releases none." Worldwatch Institute

    Our greeting cards and boxes are made from card that is processed ECF - Elementally chlorine free. Our envelopes come from 100% recycled pulp which is PCF - processed cholrine free.

    Summary: The manufacturing and production of our greeting cards incorporates valuable eco processes.
