Commemorative Earth Day Key Cards Now Available to Hoteliers

Sustainable Wood Hotel Key Cards Send Positive Message about Environment

Hede, Sweden (March 5, 2012)—Sustainable Cards, the world’s leading manufacturer of eco-friendly, wooden hotel key cards, gift cards and retail point-of-sale signage, is offering hotels a 2012 Special Edition wooden key card to commemorate Earth Day, April 22.

The eye-catching wooden 2012 Earth Day key card features an intricately designed tree with environmental symbols and the words, “Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Mother Earth thanks you, and so do we.”

New this year, for hotels in New York, is a Special Edition green heart “I Love NY” wooden key card, featuring the world-famous “I Love NY” design with Earth Day 2012 text prominently featured on the card.

“The Earth Day key cards are perfect for hotels that want to build awareness for their sustainable practices and eco-initiatives,” says Peo Akesson, CEO and Founder of Sustainable Cards. “Plus, the cards are unique mementos; no two cards are alike because they’re made from wood.”

The wood key cards are made from sustainable forest products and manufactured with very little energy and no hazardous chemicals or additives.  The cards conform to hotel lock standards and they’re durable, reusable and work just like plastic cards. Research shows that switching from traditional plastic cards to sustainable wood cards can reduce carbon emissions by as much as 50 percent,” according to Akesson.   

In addition to the key cards, hotels can also order Earth Day front desk signage, also made from sustainable wood. The sign highlights a hotel’s commitment to its environmental practices and explains why a wood card made from a renewable resource is better for the environment.

Akesson says that the eco-friendly wooden cards are being used by hoteliers in the U.S. and Europe and they continue to grow in popularity. To learn more about the 2012 Special Edition Earth Day key cards and sustainable alternatives to plastic hotel key cards, visit
