Recycled Note Of The Week: Smock Paper

This week’s Recycled Note Of The Week was found in SmockPaper’s Etsy shop.

Meet Ellie, the sustainably letterpressed “petite card”:

This particular listing is for a set of 8 blank letterpress petite note cards with hand-lined envelopes, which the seller notes are perfect as gift tags or place cards.

Each wee note is sustainably letterpressed on bamboo paper is 2-1/2 x 3-7/16 folded.

But, wait, there’s more.

As if adorable elephants on bamboo paper isn’t great enough, SmockPaper is also a wind-powered business that donates 1% of sales to environmental causes via 1% For the Planet.

Each set of cards comes packaged from Syracuse, New York in a clear sleeve that is “petroleum-free, tree-free, and certified biodegradable by the Biodegradable Products Institute.”

If elephants don’t float your proverbial notecard boat, SmockPaper also has a website.

Or check out their other designs for thank you and general notecards. These are two more of my favorites:

    I’ve been going towards handmade cards since last Christmas. Thanks for the post.

    I absolutely LOVE this idea! Thanks for sharing!

    Another green and fun (and cheap!) family activity is Bob the Builder Live. Has anyone heard of this show? Just found out that the show is offering discounted tickets. Go to this site ( and use the code BOBV.

    It teaches kids to recycle and take care of the Earth!
