Why Paper Culture Plants Trees

  • We’re a paper company: moreso than most, trees are truly our business
  • We ALWAYS use 100% post-consumer recycled paper and/or alternative renewable fibers like cotton or bamboo which means our cards do not result in the cutting down of any new trees, however, that simply means that we do no harm to trees. We wanted to take it one step further by actively contributing to reforestation by planting trees.
  • Honestly, as founders, we knew we wanted to do something on a consistent basis and it was as simple as, we all just love trees!
