Every year hundreds of thousands of trees are pulped to create the Christmas cards we send out, they arrive at their destination and are left on a desk until after the festive season when many are simply put in the bin - not even recycled! Hardly environmentally friendly!

So what can you as a business do to save trees, cut carbon and spread a little joy? By sending e-cards this Christmas businesses can decrease the use of paper, ink, distribution and packaging materials that are key sources of carbon emissions.

"More and more businesses are trying to be greener and ecards are a simple, cost effective step in the right direction, we're expecting to see up to an extra 200% in sales this Christmas from businesses who want to do their bit for the environment. Last Christmas we produced ecards for companies including Texaco, McCain's, SAS Airlines and SpecSavers - it's definitely the way forward," says Ed Myer, of offers a fantastic selection of high quality animated ecards, perfect for any business this Christmas. It's fast, easy to use and far more cost effective than sending out traditional cards.

And what's different about this site is for a £20/30 one-off fee, 10% of which goes to charity; you can upload a personal message, add a company logo and send to unlimited recipients. So rather then having to provide a database of recipients, you will receive a link to your Charity Christmas e-card which you can send from your email to your whole address book. This also doubles up as a great marketing opportunity as you can add extra information into the email, such as Christmas opening times, offers and promotions.

So get a little greener this Christmas and visit
