Eco-friendly and fully recyclable custom playing cards to support and help to protect our environment – printed by the USPCC
As you may know, climate change, seas full of plastic waste, and the destruction of rainforests are hurting our planet and the animals that live on it. The Dutch Card House Company has put a lot of effort into producing a deck of cards that combines the love for playing cards and care for the environment into one harmonious package.
To complement all these environmentally friendly characteristics, the Leaves design is completely nature-inspired. According to the team,
“The traditional-looking layout of the back design is reminiscent of nature and its dark and olive green colors. The court cards maintain their traditional designs but are merged with the color composition to create a whole, fully custom deck of cards.”
Perfect for every card enthusiast, magician and cardist, these cards maintain a classic and professional look. The Dutch Card House Company has worked closely with the USPCC to produce a truly extraordinary deck of cards. Using vegetable-based inks, each card is printed on sustainable forest paper and finished with starch-based laminating.
All decks come inside a tuck box made out of responsibly farmed forest paper. Also, this deck of cards contains absolutely zero plastics. Instead of the traditional cello wrap, the team has opted to go for a custom paper seal. This makes Leaves playing cards fully and easily recyclable.
Every deck of Leaves Playing Cards directly contributes to a better environment! A substantial part of the profit obtained with Leaves Playing Cards has been invested in adopting parts of the Costa Rican rainforest. The Dutch Card House Company teamed up with the Work With Nature Foundation to make this happen. The foundation ensures that new trees are planted, existing vegetations are protected and animals keep their natural habitats. Leaves stand for much more than just paper cards with a green design. These cards have truly a green feel!
Albert Lee –
The deck is laced through with a lovely green vine motif, creating a graceful and dynamic pattern for cardists. Some court cards are redrawn to feature the faces of people that nobody bothered to identify. I find as someone who paid money for this deck to be a smug and alienating gesture.
