Our intrepid Ringleader Nicole found these fun greeting cards and she knows awesome when she sees it. These eco-friendly and beautifully designed cards are made from European natural fiber sponge cloth. Just write a note with fabric or permanent marker, place it in the included recyclable folding non-velope and mail. Your lucky recipient will be able to see and remember you and your thoughtfulness every time they use the dishwasher-safe and recyclable cloth.

I chatted with Carla Scholz, the innovator and designer holding the cloth, and learned that 1 Clard is equal to 3000 paper towels, is reusable for months, can be laundered in the top rack of the dishwasher, sanitized in the microwave and composted when it’s worn out. Talk about sustainability! True to the European roots of the sponge cloth the cards are made from, Carla’s designs are charming and light – perfect for today’s homes. Find them here.

PS Carla gave me the hint that her Spring collection is in the works so keep an eye out for that.
