Regreet Greeting Card Kit Review by Chelsey Hall

Christy Eichers

Regreet was founded on one simple principle: "Why not do more with less?" Enter the Regreet greeting cards--a simple way to let someone know you are thinking about him while at the same time contributing to a healthier and cleaner environment. Regreet mailing labels and supplies allow you to reuse greeting cards. The company uses recycled material in all of their kits and packaging. Regreet also has a tracking system that allows you to see where your card has traveled to each time it has been reused.

The Regreet Greeting Card Kit contains:

  • Materials to repurpose four greeting cards (4 journey labels, 4 signature labels, 4 sheets of notepaper, 4 envelopes)
  • Four hop along kits to ensure each card continues on its journey (4 signature labels, 4 sheets of notepaper, 4 envelopes). Send one of these kits along with a card you regreet so the recipient can keep it going (and you can watch its progress online!)

Regreet kits are designed to fit standard-sized greeting cards, but the envelopes and labels can be easily trimmed to fit smaller-sized cards.

So how exactly does Regreet work? Let's say you've received a birthday card that you really love. Rather than throwing it away, you repurpose it. Take a signature label and cover what was written on the card. Then write your new greeting on the label. (If you want to write a longer message, just use the extra notebook paper included. Next, attach a journey label that allows the card to be tracked; put the card in an envelope and mail it. You can also include an extra kit with the card to allow your card to keep going. In essence it's the gift that keeps on giving--in card form.

For me personally, if I'm going to "go green," I'll just send an e-card. However, for someone who prefers the personal touch, doesn't want to spend a ton of money, and is concerned for the environment, this would be the perfect solution.
