What makes Tree Free cards ecofriendly? They are not made from trees. They are made from Kenaf fibers. Kenaf is a fiber plant native to east-central Africa where it has been grown for several thousand years for food and fiber. It is a common wild plant of tropical and subtropical Africa and Asia. It has been a source of textile fiber for such products as rope, twine, bagging and rugs. Kenaf is a promising source of raw material fiber for pulp, paper and other fiber products, and has been introduced since WWII in China, USSR, Thailand, South Africa, Egypt, Mexico and Cuba.
Research in the United States to use the kenaf bast (outer bark) fibers for rope began in the 1940's when jute imports from Asia were interrupted by World War II. The U.S. Department of Agriculture screened many plants for fiber sources for pulp and paper manufacturing. Kenaf was selected as the most promising non-wood fiber plant for this use. Research and development has resulted in the development of high yielding, disease resistant varieties. Today, Kenaf is grown primarily in the Southeastern U.S.A., with emphasis on development for newsprint manufacture.
Tree Free cards and paper products use Kenaf as thee major fiber in their manufacture. There is still time to order Halloween cards, and plenty of December holiday cards are available for purchase. Shipping is always free. Click here to browse the 2013 selections.
