GREETINGS CARDS AND GIFTS FOR THOSE MAD ABOUT RUNNING.
Running Cards UK was set up by, Rachel Job, a passionate runner, who was frequently frustrated that you couldn't buy greetings cards to celebrate running achievements or wish her fellow runners good luck before a race. So she made her own!
The range has now expanded to include cycling cards and running-themed gifts. Suitable for new and experienced runners, we have cards and gifts ideal for birthdays, race celebrations, Christmas and more.
We’re always working on new ideas, so feel free to make suggestions. In the meantime, thanks for the support!
You can follow us on social media - we're on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram - or sign up to our newsletter. We promise not to send you more than six emails a year because we hate spam emails too!
WE'RE THINKING ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT
It started with ensuring all our greetings cards were printed on recycled and uncoated card. Uncoated card means they can be recycled again, after use - but it didn't stop there.
As soon as recycled envelopes became available, we switched our supply and when we introduced prints and notebooks we also used recycled card and board.
Single-use plastic is particularly hard to avoid, as we need to protect our cards and gifts from damage, especially when displaying cards at events.
When buying online, anyone can ask for 'no cello' on their card order, but we resisted using compostable cellos until they were proven to last longer than a few weeks!
We are pleased that now we have found a suitable supplier and will be gradually introducing compostable and biodegradeable cellophane bags for our cards and eventually our prints and notebooks.
But it doesn't end there, we will continue to look at ways we can to use more environmentally friendly packaging and reduce our impact on the environment.
