Our Paper

Oh wait… it is!
At Polkadot Weekend we take many steps to be environmentally conscious and to minimize the impact that we have on the environment. That’s why we are careful to select environmentally friendly vendors and packaging materials.

Yes, it might be nicer being red, or yellow, or gold {or something more colorful like that}

-but you can feel good knowing that no matter what your invitation, all our papers are “green”. We strive to work with companies that support sustainable forestry and use alternative energy in production. Most of our papers come from components of recycles products and are made without chlorine chemistry. By eliminating chlorine, the paper is stronger, and has a greater ability to be recycled.
And green can be cool and friendly-like
-Aside from offering colorful invitations, our photo cards and labels are printed by a full certified Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) printer. FSC is an organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests – these forests meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain
-Eco-friendly shipping methods are important to us. Not just our packaging and shipping, but our vendors as well. Our vendors use corrugated cardboard boxes that are environmentally friendly made from 100% post-consumer waste. Corrugated cardboard is also easily recyclable either with a recycler or on your own. With our unbranded brown boxes, feel free to re-use our boxes for your own shipping needs!
