The gorse on the front of this eco-friendly greeting card grows in the wonderful Wasdale Valley, close to the foot of Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain with an altitude of 3210 feet.
The flowers on the gorse bush “are petite and few and far between, sporadic spots of sunshine, their level of flamboyance enticingly modest.” You can join me on my journey through Wasdale Head by reading the following piece of nature writing: ‘The Garden Spider: Guardian of a Door to Another Dimension‘.
In order to minimise harm to the planet and all forms of life that inhabit it, we do our best to make our greeting cards as eco-friendly as possible.
As with all of our greeting cards, this gorse greeting card is made with FSC certified paper. The inks are vegetable-based and are biodegradable. The card comes with an envelope made from recycled, unbleached paper and is packed inside a transparent wrapper that is 100% biodegradable and compostable. The product is plastic-free.
Furthermore, 10% of the sale price of this greeting card will be donated to Friends of the Lake District, an independent charity that is dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the landscapes in Cumbria and the Lake District.
