The past two and a half years have brought all of us so much loss and made our sympathy cards more important than ever. Send sympathy cards that not just convey messages of condolences and support, but also take direct action to help our climate by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Losing friends, family, colleagues, and so many others in our wider networks of friend circles and acquaintances has become all too familiar over the last two and a half years.

Whether we have lost people directly due to Covid or by the impact the pandemic has had on our healthcare systems, we have all been touched by loss and accompanying grief. And we have had to face much of this loss and grief in isolation. Never before has a sympathy card held such importance.

Sending a sympathy card has been our primary means of comforting others. And for many, receiving a sympathy card has been the only real way they have been able to receive comfort from others.

Sadly, we are not yet able to fully return to our traditions that allow us to safely gather together to celebrate the lives of those we have lost. So sympathy cards continue to be our most important means of expressing our messages of condolences and support in these uncertain times.
Along with surviving the pandemic over the last two and a half years, the dire consequences of climate change have come into stark relief.

Many of us have found ourselves on the front line of an additional global crisis. At Thanks a Ton, we considered these concerns and wanted to create greeting cards that allow people to send messages of comfort when sending memorial prayer cards and funeral cards, and also take direct action against climate change.

That is why we created sympathy cards that include the gift of carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere. In that way, we can pair hope for a better future with our messages of love and support. With our exclusive memorial prayer cards and funeral cards, we can continue our fight against the effects of climate change in memory of those we’ve lost.

We offer a number of carbon removal methodologies with our greeting cards. Most people are generally familiar with soil carbon and reforestation methods. We aim to familiarize people with additional methods such as bio-oil, concrete mineralization, and enhanced rock weathering. All of these methods are high quality climate solution pathways that can be applied to our sympathy cards.

To send your best thoughts to friends and family struggling with loss and grief in these difficult times, send a Thanks a Ton sympathy card, a memorial prayer card, or a funeral card that also takes real action to help our Planet Earth.
