Wedding Favors Are Going Green: Smock Joins with the Amazon Conservation Association

The Amazon Conservation Association, one of the environmental groups that Smock supports, has started encouraging couples to bypass traditional wedding favors at their receptions and go eco instead.

Instead of traditional less-green “keepsakes” for your guests, help save the Amazon rainforests instead.

For a $5 donation per guest, you can thank your loved ones with a contribution to help protect the Amazon.

Couples will receive one beautiful favor card per two guests, sustainably letterpressed on Smock's bamboo paper, to display on tables at their reception explaining how your donation has helped create a better livelihood for local communities and to help conserve the biological diversity of the Amazon basin.

Because Smock wants to support the good work that ACA is doing, they have donated the design and letterpress printing of the favor cards, which are based on our Engadine letterpress wedding invitations.

Smock will gladly personalize these favor cards for free for those couples who have chosen Smock for their letterpress wedding invitations.
