Have a blooming great birthday! Upcycled plastic card
Each card you buy supports beach cleaning do around the UK.
I am not going to dent the millions of tonnes of plastic entering the ocean every day but I really hope this card can spread some awareness of plastic pollution to whoever you’re sending it to in a positive, feel good way.
This handmade ‘blooming great birthday’ card is totally unique. Each card has a different bit of plastic I have beach cleaned incorporated into the design. No two cards will ever be the same.
The design is stamped using black ink onto superior white recycled card - 300 gsm.
The card is left blank on the inside so you can add your own message.
The card is square and measures 120mm x 120mm (5” x 5”). It comes with a recycled brown envelope that fits snugly around it.
It’s super important to keep your card lovely and safe in transit but I really didn’t want to use the normal plastic sleeve. So instead I wrap each card in lovely unique packaging that I have up-cycled.
The card will be delivered to you in a cardboard backed envelope.
All my cards are made near the River Thames in Deptford, London.
I can make similar cards personalised, please message me for details :)
Send a card, spread the word, feel good.
I hope people enjoy their cards for as long as possible.
But when it comes to throwing them away it is very important to me that the card and envelope are recycled but the little piece of plastic must be picked off first and thrown away in rubbish/landfill.
I have given a lot of thought to the disposal of the little pieces of plastic on my cards as preventing them from reaching the oceans is my principal concern but as plastic recycling is still so complicated rather than contaminate plastic recycling I feel it is safer at the moment for the little pieces of plastic to end up in landfill rather than in rivers and seas by mistake. I’d love to hear from anyone who has any better ideas on this.
