MOC ~ The Green Solution to Gifting ~ Review & Giveaway

Move over greeting cards, now there's a greener, more affordable solution!
 
I have to be honest... 
I really am not a greeting card person.

While I'll admit that it's true, if you have a hour to comb through the overwhelming selection of greeting cards at any retailer, you'll find at least a couple of choices that reflect your sentiments.  Who has the extra hour?  

While I love being thought of and it is always nice to get personal mail or a card on a gift, my interest in cards is primarily, and nearly exclusively, any special hand-written message within.


Then, of course, there are the outrageous prices!  $4.95 and way up!  I would much rather spend that money on more "gift" for my recipient, whomever it might be!

Don't get me started on the waste!  What really ends up happening to all those cards?

Now, I do save everything the kids receive.  Yes, I'm one of those crazy Mothers with a file box for each year of their lives.   Memoirs from shows and concerts, sporting events and vacations.  All of their report cards, homework, artwork, notes from their teachers and sports schedules.    Of course, they'll likely be my age by the time I actually do something constructive with it all!

The rest...well...

If you are a greeting card hum-bug, like myself, or even someone just looking for greener choices, you'll love MOC ~ Move Over Cards ~ the greener, economic choice for gifting!


MOC is the environmentally responsible and affordable way to give gifts. Occasions such as birthday parties, baby showers & holiday gift giving rarely require greeting cards.  You need to convey the gift is from ME to YOU in a fun and elegant way.  Go ahead, re-use those gift bags, reduce paper waste and stop spending $4.00 on individual cards.
                                 Hello MOC! 
It's no surprise that MOC was created by a savvy, green Mom!
MOC was born when owner Nicki; a mom of triplet girls and avid recycler often felt traditional greeting cards were not always necessary. Nicki’ s philosophy, Be Good to the Earth, meant helping to reduce paper waste, not creating more. Therefore, when she started designing her own line of gift enclosures she knew ‘throw away’ envelopes were not required. What separates MOC from other products are the convenient "6 pack" gift tag sets and all MOC products are made from post consumer recycled paper. MOC products save time and money without having to compromise on style and elegance.

Celebration Tag Pack
 Stylish and unique, MOC 6 pack sets come in a variety of assortments; perfect for all of your gifting needs:

  • Birthday Tag Pack
  • Celebration Tag Pack
  • Seasonal Holiday Tag Pack
  • New Baby Tag Pack
  • Annual Holiday Tag Pack
  • Thank You Tag Pack


Thank You Tag Pack
The quality of MOC is fantastic and the colors of the graphics on this post don't really do them justice.  The designs are just what I'd choose!  
Created on a heavier, post consumer recycled card stock, you'll be proud of the finishing touch they add to your gifts!  With an attractive, unique graphic on the front and space to add from you to them on the reverse, you'll appreciate your MOC 6 pack, available for only $4.00!  Less than the price of most greeting cards! 

Would you like to add a personal message, along with your MOC, on your gift?  Simply tape the MOC to your package, pen your message on a piece of recycled stationary and attach with the MOC ribbon for an extra special touch!


***SPECIAL OFFER***
Add a few MOC Tag 6 Packs to your gift & wrap supplies here and take advantage of a special savings, just for That's What She Said readers!
Take advantage of the spring promotion and get a MOC 6 pack for 1/2 off for every full price MOC 6 pack you purchase!  That's two 6 packs for only $6.00!  Saving green and going green!  Love it!

I visited her site and love that her second book wants "to help children accept and love themselves- exactly as they are." This should be the philosophy everyone goes by!!
