Is it possible to have 200% post consumer recycled envelope :) ???

So, is it possible to have 200% post consumer recycled envelope???

We, at Herbolution made it real. For our Eco-Friendly Calendar we have created upcycled envelope which doubles it's “eco-friendliness” :). As a material we used paper shopping bag, which is already a 100% post consumer waste and additionally we've chosen one from Whole Foods Market which is also made of 100% post consumer recycled paper, so we total it to 200% PCW material for our envelope. :)


So we have a tree-free eco-calendar in a tree-free eco-envelope :) how cool does that sound? :)


We encourage every environmentally conscious person to borrow apply this idea in everyday life ;)

Do you guys make these yourselves or do you have them made somewhere else? My girls are always finding new uses for paper bags...which we do not get too much anymore unless I space and forget my recyled bags.

Like all things from our shop we make envelopes also ourselves :)
We also, use our canvas bags, but in a past we could forget to grab them and as the result we have a pile of paper bags collected over the years. So, know they will have a second life :)

I have rejected every calendar I looked at and now; 2 months into the year(!) I finally find a tree-free calendar I know I will delight in every day I look at it, every time I write on it.. thank you!

Thank you Corrina for your kind words.
We are always pleased to hear appreciation of our eco-efforts. Your eco-calendar will be shipped Monday (tomorrow).
