100% Recycled Christmas Paper for Your Holiday Letters

Updated on December 31, 2013

Hundreds of Recycled Christmas Paper Designs

Finding recycled Christmas paper at your local stationery or office supply store can be challenging. They may not always carry recycled stationery or, if they do, they might not have a good selection of designs, or the paper may only have a small percentage of post-consumer waste. What's an eco-conscious shopper to do? Read on to discover where you can buy 100% post-consumer recycled Christmas stationery in hundreds of designs.

If you're looking for a great selection of recycled Christmas letter paper, Zazzle is the place to shop. You can find over a thousand unique stationery designs not available in your local store, and every single one of these designs is available on 100% post-consumer recycled paper. (Unfortunately, they don't yet seem to have this option for their cards or all their other paper products, but it is available for their letterhead.)

A search for "Christmas" in the letterhead category currently turns up over 1500 options, and you can narrow your search by searching instead for keywords such as Santa or snowman. With this many options, you're sure to find something you like.

Once you find the right design for your Christmas letterhead, simply need to look for the "Paper Type" option box that appears to the right of the stationery image. (The big yellow arrow in the image below shows an example of what this box looks like and where to find out.) The default selection is "Basic," but if you click the arrow, a fly-out menu will appear, and the very last option at the far right is Recycled. Simply click that option and your Christmas letter paper will be printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper. (Note that you'll pay a slight surcharge for this option.)

Examples of Recycled Christmas Paper at Zazzle

Eco-friendly Christmas stationery

You can find over 1000 Christmas letterhead designs at Zazzle, all of which can be ordered on 100% post-consumer waste recycled stationery. These are just a few of the Christmas letter paper options you'll find there.

If you can't find recycled Christmas letter paper you like and want to avoid using virgin paper, another option is to send an electronic Christmas letter. You can create a digital Christmas letter online in minutes at Smilebox. They offer over 1000 designs for digital newsletters, slideshows, greeting cards, party invitations, calendars and more. You can add your own photos, videos, text and music to each one to make it truly personalized. And you can do it all for free. All of their designs are free to create and share online, or you can pay a fee for the ability to print your creation, save it to DVD and see it in full-screen without ads. If you're looking for a way to "green" your holiday letters, this is a great option.
