About

OUR CARDS...


We're using greeting cards as a vehicle for positive change :) When you buy a 1 Tree Card, you're also paying for 1 tree to be planted through planting projects we support in either Haiti, Madagascar, Nepal, Mozambique or Indonesia.

But wait, there's more! Each of our 100% recycled cards also comes with a flower seed token inside to let the receiver know that "1 tree has been planted for you". This token is packed full of seeds and can be planted to grow beautiful flowers, specifically chosen for their bee-friendliness. 


OUR BUSINESS...


Our mission is to have a net positive impact on the world. Why greeting cards? Well they are already so positive and send love from person to person so we wanted to take those warm feelings and supercharge them! We also saw the massive steps that could be taken within the greeting card industry to be more earth friendly and wanted to be part of that change.


We started 1 Tree Cards in the summer of 2018 after a successful Kickstarter campaign. Since then we have gone from strength to strength and (as of November 2019) are now stocked in almost 100 stockists and have planted over 40,000 trees. Our stockists are extremely varied ranging from card & gift shops, eco/zero waste shops, garden centres, museums, vegan supermarkets, churches, health food shops, eco salons and even galleries like Somerset House have jumped aboard the eco card train!


OUR TEAM...


Becky & Michiko Kijima


Becky is a graduate of Zoology (the study of animals, not of zoos!) and has since worked in marine biology, environmental & wildlife conservation, animal behaviour, commercial diving and recycling awareness. Michiko started her first online business at the age of 22 which she ran for a decade. It wasn’t her passion in life but it gave us the money and freedom to do the things that truly matter to us.


We spent the first 8 years of our relationship volunteering for nonprofits around the world. From going undercover in the illegal wildlife trade in Vietnam to transporting dogs away from death row in the US to managing a sanctuary in Thailand – we’ve had an eventful time! Seeing the contrast between the business and charity sectors, fueled us to start an ethical business that mixed purchasing power with helping a good cause. 


Sylvain Rolando


Sylvain studied biotechnology engineering & business. He has been drawing since his childhood and is inspired by his big geek side from Nintendo, SEGA, Blizzard and LucasArt games. He has worked in different structures (Science laboratories, L’Oréal marketing headquarters and a food & nutrition communication agency) but after turning vegan in 2015, he became more conscious about the impact our consumption has on the planet and other species.

After quitting his last job, he travelled around the world for over a year doing WWOOFING, Workaways and couchsurfing while meeting new open-minded people. During his time in Japan he met Becky & Michiko and the idea for 1 Tree Cards was born. Today, he is merging all his eclectic universes and has realised that nothing makes his heart beat more than illustrating noble causes  like veganism, tolerance, empathy and peace.
