CardsDirect Collects, Recycles and Repurposes Unused Greeting Cards
PLANO, TX (January 9, 2009) – CardsDirect (www.cardsdirect.com) announces the continuation of the "CardsDirect Card Recycling and Reuse Program". Launched in December 2007, CardsDirect, a leader in the online customized greeting card business recognized a need to help in recycling and repurposing unused cards. Accepting cards that are no longer needed at the end of the season, CardsDirect sorts and sends them to organizations that can make use of them. Wildly successful, the program continues to thrive and accepts any unused holiday cards, Christmas cards or any other types of bulk greeting cards.
The program originated from inquiries by non-profit organizations looking for card donations and from customers wondering what they could do with their unused cards. In the interest of protecting the environment and in recycling, CardsDirect instituted the program that encourages repurposing those cards. Business Holiday Cards and Christmas Cards are redistributed to organizations that can accept and use them. Many benefit from unprinted cards that can be reused as is while others repurpose the fronts of the cards.
Cards can be contributed to the program throughout the year and CardsDirect has received bundles of Thank You Cards, Birthday Cards and Sympathy Cards along with those in many other categories. To participate in the program, send all unused cards to:
CardsDirect Recycling and Reuse Program
12750 Merit Drive, Suite 900
Dallas, TX 75251
All cards collected will be sorted and forwarded to non-profit groups that can use them. Those cards that cannot be reused will be sent to a recycling facility. For additional information, contact the CardsDirect customer service team at Support@CardsDirect.com or by calling 866.700.5030.
"CardsDirect is pleased to be able to offer this service. It is encouraging to see so many businesses and consumers interested in the program and in helping the environment. The boxes and boxes of cards received are gratifying and we enjoy sending them on to those organizations that will appreciate and repurpose them," said Ward Mahowald, Founder & CEO.
To continue efforts to protect the environment, CardsDirect routinely adds new recycled greeting cards in many categories that are printed on recycled card stock. CardsDirect remains a proud supporter of recycling and reuse efforts.
