The Seed Card Company
The Seed Card Company was founded by three individuals who share a love for print and wanting to play their part in creating a more sustainable and eco-friendly environment for us and future generations. Our greeting cards and personal stationery are all made entirely from post-consumer upcycled paper waste, meaning no new trees are harmed in their manufacturing process. They are recyclable, biodegradable and embedded with wildflower seeds.
Keeping things as green as possible we have also ensured our print methods tick boxes too by using vegan-friendly inks and state of the art laser-cutting technology for a no-ink option. Our packaging will never contain any plastic to maintain our ethos of being a plastic free company. We are also committed to being a zero-waste company so any off-cuts from our card sheets (no matter how small) will be re-used as another piece of stationery, donated to schools, or planted.
We look forward to meeting you all.

Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plansSustainability has been the forefront of our business from the day we started developing the company all the way through to present day. All key decisions from new suppliers, to internal processes, to all materials used have been thoroughly vetted/analysed to ensure sustainability remains as one of main core values.Sustainability initiativesAll of our stationery, greeting cards, seasonal and personal stationery are made solely from plantable, eco-friendly, biodegradable post-consumer waste board which is impregnated with wildflower seeds. Thus creating a complete sustainable loop. The stationery is printed with vegan-friendly inks, and all other materials used are either made from post-consumer or post-industrial waste to ensure no new trees are used for any of our stationery. The boards are completely chlorine and acid free and carries the Blue Label certification. As a plastic free and zero-waste business, our printers do not use ink cartridges, we print on demand so to not overprint excessive amounts, and all off-cuts are reused for other stationery items, donated to schools or planted. Further to this all our stickers are made from sugarcane and hemp and all packaging and mailers are sent in recycled and recyclable materials.Pledges for the yearIn addition to our current initiatives this year, we are not only looking to maintain our current pledges but as the company expands we are investing in green energy sources to power our energy use. We are also encouraging staff to commute to and fro the work in the most energy efficient manner, and reviewing our suppliers to evaluate their energy use and source.Sustainable ProductsGreeting CardsMade from postconsumer waste, printed with vegan-friendly inks and housed in a postconsumer no ink branded envelope.Seasonal CardsMade from postconsumer waste, printed with vegan-friendly inks and housed in a postconsumer no ink branded envelope.Personal StationeryMade from postconsumer waste, printed with vegan-friendly inks, supplied with postconsumer no ink branded envelope.
