Reminder: A Few Days Left to Win a Pack of 100 New “Green” Cards from MOO
Have you ever gazed longingly at the MOO website and wished that their beautiful cards were eco-friendly, so that you could order a set guilt-free? Well, gaze no more! The folks at MOO reached out to let us know that they have a new range of ‘green’ business cards that are 100% recycled and recyclable and even manufactured using wind power. Yay! If only I’d known before the Summit, I would have included them on our Green Crafty Resources infographic.
Not only are they launching an eco-friendly line of cards, but they want to give away three sets of 100 MOO cards each to some lucky Crafting a Green World readers! Since I know lots of you guys own crafty businesses, I thought you might dig a chance to try out some eco-friendly promo materials from a small company. There are a few ways that you can enter to win your set of 100 MOO cards:
- Comment on the original post with what you’d print on your MOO cards.
- Join our Facebook community, and let us know with a separate comment on the original post.
- Tweet about the giveaway, and let us know with a comment on the giveaway post.
Just remember to leave a separate comment for each entry, so we can be sure to count them all! We’ll announce the winner on Wednesday, November 9th!
From the info on the MOO page, it looks like the main difference between the green cards and typical MOO cards is that the green version isn’t reflective, which makes a lot of sense. That reflective coating is most likely plastic, so leaving it off makes it more eco-friendly. It looks like the green cards are also a slightly heavier weight paper. MOO’s conventional cards are none-too-shabby on the eco front, either. They source that paper from sustainably managed forests, which some folks argue is just as good as recycled or possibly even better.
I haven’t seen these cards in person yet, but MOO is also going to send me a set of their recycled cards to review for you guys. If they’re anything like the other MOO cards I’ve seen, I bet that they’re gorgeous. More on that when my set of cards arrives on my doorstep!
