TREE-FREE PAPER CARDS THAT SAVE TREES: We love receiving or gifting birthday greeting cards, but we also want to protect our planet and save our precious trees, so that is why we have created a selection of TREE-FREE CARDS, that are not made with virgin trees! You can choose your card in all these paper types: SEEDED PAPER / FSC-approved 100% recycled paper / ELEPHANT POO PAPER / COTTON CUTS PAPER / LEMONGRASS PAPER
SEEDED PAPER: Choosing a card made with seeded paper will allow the receiver to plant it and turn their greeting card into flowers and plants!
ELEPHANT DUNG PAPER: Elephant dung is a rich source of fibre and is naturally processed in the digestive tract of the elephant. As a result, a significant number of fibres remain intact and is perfect to turn into elephant poo paper, after being carefully and thoroughly disinfected. The dung is collected from elephant sanctuaries so this paper making provides and extra form of income for charities dedicated to animal preservation.
LEMONGRASS PAPER: Lemongrass paper is made after the extraction process of oilS from the lemongrass plant. Instead of discarding the grass, it is steamed and made into sheets of paper.
COTTON PAPER: Cotton offcuts from the clothing manufacturing industry usually end up in landfills. But that's a real waste as cotton contains high cellulose that can be turned into high quality, chemical-free paper. So instead we use cotton paper made with the fashion waste and turn it into beautiful cards!
100% FSC RECYCLED PAPER CARDS: You can also choose elegant cards that are made with 100% UK recycled paper that has not been bleached or treated with nasty chemicals.

First off, thank you for visiting our website! We starting our own journey as a zero-waste family with a clear goal in mind to make meaningful changes in our habits and lifestyle; our mantra has always been “have less impact on the planet, create less waste, and become better, more sustainable consumers”.
In our quest to swap plastic or disposable products with durable, plastic-free and less wasteful alternatives, we found there were companies we fell we could trust completely. These companies are now part of the EarthBits family and we are very proud to collaborate with them and showcase their products on this site!
On the other hand, we also found there were a lot of other products that were advertised as “eco-friendly” but didn’t seem to us as sustainable or ethical as we wanted them to be. With that in mind, we decided to launch our own brand of products, sourced from small, often family-run suppliers we can fully trust.
All our products have a story to tell, and they have been made with our beautiful Earth in mind! I hope you will love them as much as we do!
