When did you last send a letter? Tree-Free Greetings will give away free greeting cards at California Organics from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday to promote their summer campaign: “Social Networking, the Old-Fashioned Way.”

Combining nostalgic thoughtfulness with modern environmental awareness, the company aims to bring back the unique sentiment of letter-writing without compromising environmental values.

“Our mission is to inspire people to deepen their relationships by using greeting cards — a method far more thoughtful than text or email,” says Steve Silverstein, the company’s founder and president.

Tree-Free’s summer campaign will cross the country in a road-trip van, popping up at natural food markets. Shoppers are encouraged to reach out to just about anyone and share their letter-writing story.

Tree-Free Greetings was founded in 1999 with the goal of being the most transparent and environmentally conscious greeting card company. Tree-Free uses solar energy to print their colorful greeting cards and ARTvelopes on 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper and wheat straw (an agricultural by-product) in Keene, New Hampshire.
