About GreenEarthSupplies

Sales 16,675
On Etsy since 2010

A way to supply my shop became a way to supply others!

I started Green Earth Supplies in 2010 when as a photographer and artist I had a hard time finding eco-friendly blank cards to make my own photo and art cards with. I started making my own and realized I had a supply I could offer other eco-conscious people and this shop was born.

It has always been a tenet of this business to only stock products that are eco-friendly in nature (recycled and when possible, FSC certified for sustainability). The card stock and envelopes are manufactured in small US based paper mills as well. Not only are the products recycled, but the packaging is as well - from the tissue paper, to the recycled maps the sets are bound in, to the stickers/labels, receipts, and boxes. Though the envelopes are a sourced supply, the flat/folded cards and chipboard pieces are cut to size and order.

Thanks for visiting with us; we appreciate your support of small businesses and eco-friendly options!

Returns and exchange details
*RETURNS & EXCHANGES*
We sell sample packs to help you see/feel/try our our products before ordering and encourage you to utilize this option if you're unsure on the color, size or weight of our products to make sure they are the perfect fit for your special event or business needs.

If you do make a purchase and decide it's not quite for you, please note that we do accept returns (non-custom cut), within 2 weeks of receipt minus a 20% restocking fee. If you decide to do an exchange, the restocking fee will be waived.

Items must be returned in original/unused condition in order to receive a refund so please take care in sending back as paper products are easily damaged. Costs to ship back are the responsibility of the buyer. Once again, we encourage the purchase of a sample pack to help avoid returns and to ensure you're happy with the options you have chosen.

If there is an error on our part, please let us know right away and we will ensure that the order is corrected swiftly at no cost of the customer.

*WRONG ADDRESSES*
Please make sure that you have the correct address listed on your order before submitting. Lost shipments or returned packages due to a wrong shipping address provided by the buyer will not be the responsibility of the seller. "Free shipping" is only included on the initial order; if an order is returned back to us due to an error when ordering and you would like us to resend it out to a new address, we will ask you to pay for the shipping costs to send it back out.
Shipping
Your package will ship within 1-2 business of order excluding custom/bulk orders which may take longer.

Here are shipping timelines as estimated by USPS (NOT guaranteed, but estimated):

Domestic Standard first class: 2-5 business days
Domestic Priority: 2-3 business days
Domestic Express: 1-2 business days

International first class: 2-4 weeks
International Priority: 6-10 business days
International Express: 3-5 business days

*PLEASE NOTE: these are estimates and not guaranteed by USPS so we cannot guarantee delivery dates, only the day we ship; please plan accordingly. Shipping times also do not include processing on our end. Business days are considered M-F and we operate on EST time zone. International orders also need to go through customs which may add to the timeline.

*IMPORT FEES*
Please note that some countries apply additional VAT, customs fees, import duties and/or handling charges/taxes on imported packages, depending on your country’s import limits; buyers are responsible for any import charges imposed by their home country. Regarding Etsy's language of "VAT included where applicable" - please note that it is not applicable with our business and as such VAT is not included in any of our products. We are legally required to fill out customs form accurately, listed as merchandise, with purchase price paid listed and will not honor requests to do otherwise as it is illegal for us to do so. Thank you for understanding.

*LOCAL PICK-UPS*
Sorry, but since we are set up as an internet business and don’t have a public store front, our insurance policies don't allow us to conduct business with local customers at our current location. However, shipping to other locations in Connecticut typically only takes one business day and at a discounted local rate.

Can you print my logo or information on your products?

Sorry, but we do not offer custom printing at this time.

I live in CT, can I pick up in person?

Sorry, but since we are set up as an internet business and don’t have a public store front, our insurance policies don't allow us to conduct business with local customers at our current location. However, shipping to other locations in Connecticut typically only takes one business day and often at a discounted local rate.

Can you do custom sizes?

On cards, yes, we can cut to size up to a certain point (dimensions of the paper), just send us a message with information on what sizes you're looking for, the quantity, the color/weight option of the cardstock and the location it's shipping to so we can get you a quote.

The envelopes are a supply we stock, not make so we're unfortunately not able to adjust the size.
