There's a greeting card for everything. You send a card to celebrate exciting achievements and show your love. It's also tradition to send out a big batch over the holidays; the United States alone mails out 1.3 billion holiday cards per year.

As you can imagine, sending so many physical cards comes at a cost to the planet. Many holiday cards—especially those that are foil-lined, glittery, and glossy—can't be recycled, so they wind up in a landfill.

Greeting cards also have a hefty carbon footprint: Holiday cards alone produce the same amount of carbon emissions as 22,000 homes’ energy use for one year or charging 22 billion smartphones.

A smart and sustainable solution? Going virtual with your holiday cards, and GroupGreeting is here to help.

Why We Love GroupGreeting

GroupGreeting is a fast, convenient, affordable, and eco-friendly way to spread holiday cheer.

The digital greeting card service allows you to send cards online, which saves trees, cuts carbon emissions, and reduces waste. The company is also an official partner of the reforestation organization, One Tree Planted. Every time you click "send," you're doing the planet a favor in more ways than one.

These virtual greeting cards are also just as special as physical options, if not more so. This season, 100+ new holiday cards have been added to the lineup (including animated cards!), making it easy to find something for everyone. Every card can be personalized with personal photos, GIFs, emojis, and font styles. There are even new photo upload card templates to work with.

One of the most unique features GroupGreeting offers is allowing multiple people to sign and share a message on a single card, regardless of location. Aka instead of mom and dad signing for the whole family, each family member can add a special note for the recipient. Unlike a physical card, there are unlimited pages to work with; you can make your message as long as you want.

Once you've finalized your holiday card, schedule a time for it to arrive in your recipient's inbox—no stamps needed.

How to Use GroupGreeting (Plus a Discount!)

Using GroupGreeting is easy. So easy, in fact, that you can make a personalized card in as little as one minute.

After choosing a card for any occasion (holidays, birthdays, and beyond) and giving it the personalized look you want, send the card link to friends or family so they can also sign the card. Once it's ready to go, it will be sent to the recipient via email at the time and date you selected.

If you're interested in trying GroupGreeting for yourself, you can get 50% off your first card using the code BRIGHTLY50. You're just a few clicks away from a sustainable new holiday tradition!
