At Total Cards, our commitment to being environmentally friendly doesn't stop at our practices and services; it extends to the products we offer.

While we are deeply passionate about what we do, we are also acutely aware of the environmental footprint left by the logistics and carbon impact associated with our industry. It's our responsibility to address these concerns and take steps towards a more sustainable future.

At Total Cards, we actively take steps to reduce our own carbon footprint. Here are some of the initiatives we currently have in place:

  1. Eco-Friendly Packaging: We use environmentally friendly packaging materials to minimize waste and reduce the environmental impact of our shipments.
  2. Energy-Efficient Operations: We invest in energy-efficient equipment and practices to minimize energy consumption in our daily operations.
  3. Recycling: We have established recycling programs to responsibly dispose of waste materials and encourage our employees to participate in recycling efforts.
  4. Sustainable Sourcing: We prioritize products from suppliers who adhere to sustainable and eco-friendly manufacturing practices.
  5. Reduced Emissions: We continually explore ways to reduce emissions from our transportation and shipping processes.
  6. Digital Initiatives: We promote digital communication and documentation to reduce paper usage and promote a paperless office environment.

"We are committed to continually improving and expanding our environmental efforts to contribute to a greener, more sustainable future."

We’re on a mission to put an end to the damaging days of shopping online by showing that shopping online doesn’t always mean bad for the planet.

The internet is one of the most carbon-polluting industries on the planet, consuming an estimated 416.2TWh of energy per year - more than the entire United Kingdom. It’s a fast-growing industry, but slow to change: most of this power is still generated from fossil fuel sources.

But it doesn’t need to be this way.

Warehouse Recycling

As mentioned, we repurpose cardboard from deliveries, shredding it into sustainable fillers for order packaging. This eco-friendly shred offers excellent protection during transit, reducing the need for additional bubble wrap. We're delighted that customers are finding inventive ways to reuse it at home!

For every single staff donation we receive every month, we promise to match the amount. That means for every £1 that our staff members donate, Total Cards will double the total donated. You can track our monthly progress on our Ecologi page.
