How Are We Different ?


Conventional Greeting Cards What Is The Harm?

Did you know that a greeting card could be hazardous to your health?

  • petroleum-based inks used in most conventional greeting cards emit high amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere
  • VOCs in turn contribute to the development of ground level ozone, which is a leading factor in the formation of smog
  • smog negatively effects the respiratory system and contributes to global warming

Our Process for Scarves and Cards

  • no petroleum-based inks are used in printing images from leaves and flowers onto fabric
  • leaves, flowers and seeds are bundled in cloth, and steamed to release their natural dyes and patterns
  • minimal water is used for steaming, and it is reused over and over to dye many fabrics
  • conventional synthetic fabric dyeing is very polluting to the environment, uses 20 L of water to dye a single t-shirt, and releases the dye, formaldehyde, lead and mercury from processing into our rivers and streams
  • eco-dyeing has minimal environmental impact

Our Materials Have Very Low Environmental Impact

  • 100% organic, 100% biodegradable
  • all natural plant dyes from locally sourced petals and leaves
  • all plant dyes biodegrade, and are environmentally friendly
  • willow, oak and rose leaves from plants grown in Calgary, Canada are our favorites
  • plants composted after dyeing -– zero waste!
  • our fabrics are organic; bamboo, silk and wool are our favorites
  • each card and each scarf is 100% unique
  • all items handmade in Calgary
  • a portion from each item sold is donated to www.TreeCanada.ca and their Operation Releaf which is planting trees in areas like Fort McMurray
  • cards are made from 100% recycled unbleached paper
  • even the card pouches are environmentally friendly – not plastic! Compostable “EarthFirstR PLA film” from plants
