Tradition or Trash

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, household waste in the USA increases more than 25%. So while the holiday season is the most wonderful time of year, it’s also the most wasteful. How can we make a difference? Punchbowl, the gold standard in online invitations, is challenging consumers to #choosedigital this year for their holiday party invitations and greeting cards. Every year, more than 1.6 billion paper invites and cards are printed, mailed and discarded. The environmental impact of this tradition is staggering, and Punchbowl has the stats to prove it. Take a look at the infographic below, which highlights “The Nightmare After Christmas” – the destructive effect that paper production and waste has on the Earth.

Ready to #choosedigital? Download the new state-of-the-art App from Punchbowl from the App Store or Google Play to create, send, and manage gorgeous, FREE digital party invitations. As an added bonus, the company has pledged to donate $1 for every membership purchased, and will make an additional donation when holiday party hosts choose one of these specially-marked online invitations. All donations will go towards reducing wasteful paper production.
