It’s Not Too Late to use Email Greetings to Spread Joy and Save the World

Posted on | November 21, 2014 | No Comments

So the holiday crunch is here.  If you react with panic when you hear the jingle alarm bells because you forgot to send your annual company holiday greeting, don’t worry. You can send an environmentally friendly email greeting with just a click of a mouse. Yes we know, “Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse,” but with Ennect online marketing tools an exception can be made for this type of mouse. By using Ennect to send warm wishes to your clients and business associates, you’ll save time and reduce waste.

Here are some facts on holiday waste that might help persuade you to go digital this season:

  • An estimated 2.6 billion holiday cards are sold each year in the United States, enough to fill a football field 10 stories high – Electronic holiday greeting cards are a convenient, no-cost, waste-free alternative. (
  • By sending one less card, we’d save 50,000 cubic yards of paper. (
  • Increased paper use (for wrapping and cards) means more trees are cut down, more air and water is polluted, and more toxic waste is generated in the manufacturing process. (
  • The United States Environmental Protection Agency recommends sending electronic greeting cards to reduce paper waste. (
