Sure, tapping out an e-mail is the greenest way to trumpet your baby’s birth, but if you crave a more personal, tactile mode of communication, opt for recyclable paper announcements over glossy, landfill-clogging photo cards. (It’s hard to believe but not everyone wants to hang on to a picture of your moppet for all eternity.) Paper Culture does the planet one better — it prints its modern baby announcements on 100% post-consumer recycled, FSC-certified stock that has been created using wind power.

In addition to offsetting its emissions through Carbonfund.org, Paper Culture also earmarks a portion of its profits to charity. With designs suited for boys or girls, singles or multiples, Paper Culture’s cards feature plenty of room for your baby’s picture — just in case anyone needs evidence of the cutest new kid in town.
