The vast majority of my wedding invitations (97% in 2019) are printed ‘in house’ and I use a beautiful textured white card stock which is 100% recycled. The production of recycled paper not only saves deforestation, it uses approx 50% less energy to produce and also reduces carbon emissions. Carbon is retained in the paper when recycled rather than being released when incinerated or broken down in landfill sites.
The lovely seed paper I have recently started using is made in a UK paper mill where it is air dried to give the grass and wildflower seeds the best chance to germinate. Obviously it is completely biodegradable and I encourage you and your guests to plant it in the ground, watch the paper disappear and the seeds grow!
When you receive your order and have unpacked your box – please be sure either to re-use them or place them in your paper recycling because all of the packaging products I use are 100% recyclable; no bubble wrap or polystyrene in sight at Laura Likes HQ! Just cardboard boxes, paper mail bags, recycled tissue paper made and even paper tape. I will often also reuse paper padding I receive from my own environmentally conscious suppliers.
Green Production Practices
Within the production of your stationery every effort has been made too keep wastage to a minimum. Any off cuts or waste printed paper is in turn recycled and I also recycle all my ink cartridges with Canon, who purport that more than 97% of each cartridge is recycled into other products.
