1 Tree Cards: Eco Greeting Cards that Plant Trees

£3,378

127

UPDATE: 100% Funded - THANK YOU!!!

Time to do a happy dance,  we have reached our goal! Woop woop! 

Any extra pledges will go into making the business even more awesome... more designs, more trade shows, more expansion, we can't wait! :D

No matter how much we raise, we're working as hard as we can to get as many designs to you as possible. By the end of the campaign, each of our backers will have at least 60 designs to choose from!

UPDATE: Bonus Collections...

We received lots of requests for more holiday cards so behold, our Snowfolks Collection!

We are all massive foodies so naturally we needed some cards featuring food characters. Here we have the Greatings Collection!

1 tree planted with every card...

A simple yet beautiful concept that will turn your lovely sentiments into positive change for the world. 

Each card is 100% recycled and comes with the planting of a tree. A seed token is also included which can be planted to grow wildflowers to help feed bees.

We're partnering with the wonderful Eden Reforestation Projects to plant trees in countries which have suffered immensely due to mass deforestation. 

Planting trees isn't just great for the environment; these reforestation projects act as a catalyst for good throughout communities.

Colibri Collection...

Our first collection is centred around the story of a guardian robot and his woodland friends. Colibri was created by an engineer who feared the collapse of humankind and wanted a being who would help the natural world thrive again.

Although robots are not known for their emotion, Colibri is special and is full of empathy; he can learn and share feelings such as joy, pain and compassion. Throughout the collection, Colibri cares for and celebrates special moments with his friends. 

Colibri (which means hummingbird in French) is also a message of hope - although he is just one small robot, he does what he can to help.

By sharing these cards and planting trees, we hope to show that it is not too late for humans to heal the world. 

Same Love Collection... 

Our second collection celebrates love and all of it's diversity. As members of the LGBTQIA+ community who have often felt under-represented, we want to show that love is love, no matter what form it takes. 

There are many colours in the rainbow of diversity and it's our mission to celebrate as many as possible through this collection and more.

Treevolution Collection...

Our third collection features tree puns because 2/3 of our team are British and Brits love a good pun! A lot of love went into creating these special characters, we hope they make you smile...

Watch Sylvain give birth to a little tree...

Rewards...

We've kept our rewards simple with a couple of add-ons. 

You choose the number of cards you want now and when the campaign is over, we will send a survey for you to choose your designs. Mix & match from different collections, order 50 of 1 design, we're totally flexible. 

 *Retail packs include the following: barcoded cards, seed tokens, recycled envelopes and optional compostable display bags & stickers. 

Add-ons...

For the super-fans who see us as more than just greeting cards. Order any number of our 33 designs as high quality prints and each one will have any text removed and be signed by Sylvain. 

Just total up the cost of your add-ons (£15 for 1 print, £30 for 2 prints etc) and then add this to the total pledge amount. 

Created locally by an amazing social enterprise - Upcycled Environment. Each one is unique and beautifully handmade using reclaimed wood. Please message us for more info and shipping costs.

Why we're doing this... 

We are all hippies at heart who love to spend time outdoors. We are passionate about social change and we feel this project has the potential to encompass many important issues. We believe greeting cards are a perfect way to spread inter-sectional awareness; all while planting trees and celebrating life's special moments :)

Funding...

All funds will go directly into our first print run to fulfil rewards and have stock leftover to sell once the campaign is over. As well as working on new designs, we'll be taking these cards to trade shows to expand the business as much as possible. 

Meet the team...

Becky is a graduate of Zoology (the study of animals, not of zoos!) and has since worked in marine biology, environmental & wildlife conservation, animal behaviour, commercial diving and recycling awareness. Michiko's CV is a little more boring than that! She started an online business at the age of 22 which she ran for a decade. It wasn't her passion in life but it gave us the money and freedom to do the things that truly matter to us.

We've spent the last 6 years travelling and volunteering for nonprofits around the world. From going undercover in the illegal wildlife trade in Vietnam to transporting dogs away from death row in the US to managing a sanctuary in Thailand - we've had an eventful time! We have now moved back to the UK with our 2 Thai dogs and Canadian cat who decided to adopt us on our travels. Happy and settled back home, we are now ready to put our all into 1 Tree Cards…

Hi! I'm Sylvain. I’ve studied engineering & business and I’ve been drawing since my childhood, inspired by different video game universes. After working in different structures (science laboratories, L’Oréal marketing headquarters and a food & nutrition communication agency), I turned vegan and noticed that nothing makes my heart beat more than illustrating noble causes (veganism, tolerance, empathy and peace). My big geek side (The legend of Zelda, Warcraft, Diablo, Tales of Monkey Island…) inspires me for all my drawings ! 

Risks and challenges

Besides not reaching our goal and any shipping delays beyond our control (weather, customs etc), there is very little risk to supporters of our project. We have 33 designs and an eco-conscious printing company ready and waiting to print our first run of cards. We have lots of experience fulfilling online orders and are confident that rewards will be shipped within a few weeks after the end of our campaign.
