Send a Card, Plant a Tree
I'm sure many of you have sent an ecard at some point in the last few years. And, if you haven't sent one, I'm sure you've heard of ecards or even received one yourself. But, have you heard of an ecard that in return plants a tree? Genius!
Over the last several years many individuals have helped to save trees by avoiding physical greeting cards. Sending greeting cards electronically during holidays has been an increasing trend over the last decade as it is a way to send a loved one a personalized greeting and it helps to save the environment. Some of the most popular holidays when it comes to sending eCards online are Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and, of course, Christmas. Christmas eCards online have exploded in popularity as families love to send messages via the Internet. Rather than using gas and spending extra time to head to the nearest store, Internet users have the opportunity to reduce their fuel consumption and save money at the same time.
Recently, a website has been created that will allow individuals to send an eCard that Plants a tree. This is a wonderful idea that will help to illustrate the importance of trees. This would be a great opportunity to teach young ones exactly what trees do and how they affect our everyday lives. Unfortunately, with the fast paced world we live in, many children do not fully understand how important trees and plants truly are. By sending an eCard that plants a tree Americans will be able to show many how special trees are to our Earth.
The recipient of this eCard can download a personalized tree certificate and view an online tour of tree planting projects. It is important to note that an eCard that plants a tree starts at $6.50 but this is small fee that is well worth it. There are free eCards available but they do not plant a tree. Even though they do not plant a tree they can still provide inspirational messages about Mother Earth.
With Earth Day right around the corner, why not send an ecard or two? It's a brilliant concept so please spread the word!
