For those of you who still prefer to send commercial greeting cards to family and friends on important occasions, there is a new development to consider about the use of plastic. Have you ever wondered why the companies who make these cards think they need to come in a clear plastic sleeve or cover? Paper greeting cards are not that vulnerable to damage during shipment or even at the hands of picky consumers reading a number of them before finding just the right one. There is no need! Buy a card that doesn’t come in plastic, and let the store know that you will not buy cards that do…so they redirect their inventory to more sustainable items.
