CardsDirect Gives Back by Collecting, Repurposing and Recycling Unused Greeting Cards

CardsDirect continues to support charitable organizations through its “CardsDirect Recycling and Reuse Program” by collecting unused greeting cards and forwarding them on to those who can use them.


PLANO, TX (November 24, 2009) – CardsDirect ( continues its "CardsDirect Recycling and Reuse Program" by collecting and redistributing usable greeting cards to organizations that put them to good use.  The online leader in custom printed Greeting Cards, CardsDirect is pleased to continue this green environmental initiative launched in December 2007.


CardsDirect has long been a supporter of worthy charities and this program lends support in yet another way by supplying usable greeting cards at no cost to non-profit organizations that can put them to good use.  Consumers and businesses are encouraged to send their unused greeting cards to CardsDirect for repurposing.  The cards are received, sorted and forwarded to organizations that sign and mail them on or use them in craft related projects.  Unusable cards are delivered to a recycling facility and pulped for new products.


This extremely popular program originated from inquiries received by CardsDirect asking for card donations or from customers asking what they could do with the unused cards they had accumulated.  “Putting these two groups together was an easy decision and one that helps schools and organizations that need donations, while at the same time helping the environment.  An amazing amount of unused cards are received here throughout the year and we are pleased to be able to offer them to organizations that will put them to good use,” said Ward Mahowald, Founder & CEO.


Christmas Cards and Holiday Cards are especially welcomed by non-profits during the holiday season as the fronts of these cards can be repurposed for gift tags, tree ornaments or other seasonal craft projects.  Unsigned cards are used in fundraising and thousands have been donated to organizations that have them signed and sent on to our troops overseas.  Birthday Cards, Thank You Cards, Sympathy Cards, and cards for any occasion are received by CardsDirect throughout the year and repurposed or recycled.
