Sustainability

It's not just any card company; we're different. We have noticed that many greeting cards that are not environmentally friendly and we don't like that. Hence, Neon Hotdog's mission is to create cards with a conscience.

 

Card stock

We are committed to sustainable forest management and the protection of endangered species. All of our paper products are made from 100% FSC-certified pulp, which is grown in well-managed forests and harvested from renewable resources.

 

We use a mix of papers, all from local suppliers.  

 

Our papers are either 40% reclaimed cup fibre and 60% virgin pulp or 100% recycled post-consumer waste fibres. We also continue to seek more 100|% recycled paper options with the aim to be 100% recycled in the future.

 

Compatible Sleeves

Our bags are made in the UK from NATIVIA® film that has been accredited to EN 13432 and ‘OK biobased’. They are made from Plant Based (annually renewable) PLA derived from vegetable starches (cornstarch) and are compostable and biodegradable. Biodegradation occurs at end of life once exposed to moisture, heat and naturally occurring bacteria/fungi when it will break down into compost (not microplastics). 

 

Envelopes

Most of the recycled paper used in our envelopes is made from 100% post-consumer waste, and a few of the colours can vary slightly from batch to batch. 

 

Printing

We digitally print all of our cards. This is a more sustainable option than other printing methods, since it uses less energy, produces less waste, and has a smaller carbon footprint overall.
