E-card, Free Card, No-waste-from-me Card

I sent out e-cards for the holidays a few years back because, honestly, I didn’t want to buy stamps and address envelopes. The following year, we sent actual cards, mostly because I felt like I was supposed to (and they were pretty cute). But this year, we’re back to e-cards, only now I have an acceptable excuse: e-cards are zero waste (and I’m being “environmentally responsible”, saving time, money, and trees)!

You might think it’s not the same as a “real card”, and I get it. But I’m sending warm wishes to our loved ones, just the same…

2015: Our year in review

My husband and I designed our card on a MacBook using the program Pages, but there are also e-card services with limited free options or more choices for a small fee.

I was super appreciative of a friend who took me off her mailing list and texted me a picture of her card instead, but just for the record, we still thoroughly enjoyed the cards we got via “snail mail”.

Happy Y’all-idays!

    Great family photos for this ecard! Looks fun and far more personalized than generic ecards and oftentimes, paper cards as well. I would certainly prefer to receive this type of ecard in my inbox over the others!

    So glad you wrote about this. Holiday cards have been one of the harder parts of going zero waste/being sustainable – such a nice tradition, but I hate that they just end up in the trash/recycling. I should look into e-cards for next year!
