Life in the Green Lane

Environmental journalist Candice Batista shares video clips and eco-savvy advice from her TV show, A Greener Toronto.

First impressions are very important! And if you’re in the business of green, a green business card is the only way to go. Your business card is the smallest and most widely used marketing product, it gives people a sense of who you are and what you do. The worst thing for me is to be handed a laminated plastic business card at a green event, I have to say it irritates me. If you are going to talk the talk YOU MUST walk the walk! Whether you are part of an environmental group or charity, a green business, a start-up or an individual/company that cares about its green image and carbon footprint, The World’s Greenest Business Card, may be for you. If you are worried about quality, don’t be, my card is 100% compostable and it looks great! The cards are available in full colour both sides, it’s printed waterless with vegetable-based inks on FSC-certified stock containing 100% post-consumer waste paper (no new trees harvested). Your “green” business card can make a difference, besides demonstrating your company's commitment to the environment, you are also doing a lot for conservation, every printing conserves resources: • 3 trees / 1040 lbs of wood not used . • 162 lbs / 74 kg solid waste not created. • 1,529 gallons / 6,953 L of water not used - enough water to take 88 eight minute showers. • 356 lb / 161 kg greenhouse gases prevented - equivalent to carbon sequestered by 15.2 tree seedlings grown for 10 years. If you order from http://www.trafficdesign.ca , a tree will be planted in your name. Tree donations will be made through Trees Ontario, a not-for-profit organization committed to the re-greening of Ontario through tree planting efforts on rural lands and in urban areas. Trey cool!! Who knew we could make such a difference with a small thing like a business card. Eco Candy.
