Read Me, Plant Me

We’ve said it before on the blog – loving both Planet Earth and stationery is a bit of a conflict of interest. But with lots of 100% post consumer print choices now, we can make more eco-friendly purchases. But cards that biodegrade and turn into wildflowers? Well, that’s taking it to a whole new level! I’m talking about cards that have seeds within the paper fiber. When you plant the card, the paper decomposes and you’re left with blooming wildflowers. I’ve always wondered what to do with cards after the fact and this is a great way to cut down on clutter and give back to nature too.

Founded in 1996 by Heidi Reimer-Epp and her mom Mary, Botanical PaperWorks makes “tree-free” paper filled with pure North American wildflower seeds. The base fiber is either cotton or made from 100% post-consumer waste. All this is made right here in Canada out of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

This is an absolutely fantastic idea and they offer lots of different products made with this great paper. There are books and journals, calendars, gift tags, greeting cards and more. Here’s a small selection but definitely check out their site for more. They even do weddings!
