About Greenvelope
A Seattle-based company helping to save paper and preserve the beauty of the Pacific Northwest
Greenvelope strives to deliver the most elegant electronic invitation service by emulating the experience of opening a “traditional” printed invitation. By creating a positive online experience, we hope more hosts will consider sending invitations electronically for formal events - to help save trees, time, and money. To express our commitment towards this goal, we donate a percentage of every sale to Mountains to Sound, a non-profit organization that maintains forests. Together we can "invite" a greener future.
