C2C Holdings, Inc is a way cool company that was inspired by the Cradle to Cradle design philosophy and their overall goal is to eliminate the concept of waste. They do this by designing products so that their material value can be harnessed again and again in future products instead of ending up in a landfill.
Their first product line is ReProduct greeting cards and envelopes, which can also be customized to include invitations, announcements and other stationery items. ReProducts cards are made from a plastic material called OPP (oriented polypropylene) and are printed with healthy UV cured inks. Both the card material and the ink formulation have been certified to contain no toxins. This means that there are no human health risks associated with any materials in the cards. The cards are then sent to the recipient in a unique 2-way envelope (similar to Netflix) that provides pre-paid return postage back to the manufacture, Shaw Industries. When the recipient is finished with the card, they simply put the card into the return envelope and drop it in the mail. Shaw Industries then uses 100% of the cards and envelopes to create carpet backing in new carpet tiles.
Show your family & friends that you are thinking about them while still thinking about the environment – Go green & use ReProduct Cards.
