"Have a Dino-mite Valentine's Day" and "Ahoy Matey, be my Valentine" are some of the greeting cards usually left for the last minute dash to the Greeting Card aisle on Valentine's Day. What if you could avoid the last minute dash, find a sentiment that really means something and help make Valentine's Day a little greener this year? You're in luck! This Valentine's Day, JustGreen is proud to launch the "Share the Love" campaign - for every bundle of three Valentine's Day E-cards sold, JustGreen will match each contribution and all proceeds will go towards helping to reduce air pollution (carbon emissions) from landfill gas sites in North America. Find the E-cards at http://www.believe-in-green.com/valentines-day-share-the-love/ .
Cupid's Arrow Hits the Mark
Valentine's Day is a close second to Christmas time for the volume of greeting cards exchanged. In fact, Americans send close to 142 million Valentine's Day cards to that special someone every year . With the paper industry being the 4th largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions that means a lot of paper will end up in landfills, negatively impacting our environment.
JustGreen's Valentine's Day "Share the Love" E-card pack has three unique designs that can be sent to anyone special in your life. For every $2.95 contributed, JustGreen will match that and direct the proceeds to help reduceair pollution (carbon emissions) from landfill gas in North America.
"An E-card is an ideal way to send your sentiments to a loved one this Valentine's Day," says Gerardo Manalac, Executive Vice President of JustGreen."This is another proactive alternative so that we can help make our planet a cleaner and healthier place."
The top five JustGreen benefits of sending an E-card to keep in mind are:
E-cards are paperless - no waste.
Since an E-card does not involve transportation to a brick and mortar retail location, no CO2 emissions are generated as a result.
Nothing is tossed into a landfill after the Valentine's Day sentiments are done.
Arrives to the recipient instantly.
If you're pressed for time, you can select your card quickly from wherever you are with online access. Why not choose an E-card that "Shares the Love" with the environment too!
