It’s rare that I talk about the more corporate side of blogging, but this was too good an opportunity to let it pass.
For the past year or so, I’ve enjoyed going to meet-ups and networking events with a view to widen reach of my blog, and also speak to other bloggers about their own. It’s always nice to walk in a room with people who care about writing and reading as much as I do, and the fact they know how great blogging is means there’s always an instant connection!
However, it’s fairly easy to forget names, domains, handles, etc. I am surprisingly good with faces though – it’s been nice to spot a few friendly bloggers outside of the online world and almost feel like a fan of a celebrity. All in all, it’s warranted need of some business cards, and like everything I do, they had to be as sustainable as possible for me to feel okay with it!
That’s where my trip to Moo came in. I’ve looked through green business cards before, and while few and far between, Moo’s green business cards seemed to be well considered for the eco-friendly shopper.
First off, paper for the cards is 100% recycled paper, made from t-shirt offcuts. It’s a funny thing to make card out of, but it definitely makes the story unique when handing them out! The box that these business cards come in is made from 100% recycled pulp board too. This is such a nice change from plastic boxes, and it’s a charming little thing to hold too.
Finally, when whoever you’ve gifted your card to has no need to keep hold of it any more, the card can be recycled and is biodegradable too. I’m planning a post explaining the differences between compostable and biodegradable, but essentially if it does end up in a landfill, it will be broken down by bacteria and return to nature.
If you’re looking to also purchase some cards in the future, I’d totally recommend Moo. Enjoy!
