Growing Holiday Cards

I love to get cards and letters… birthday, holidays, just-because.  There is nothing quite like getting a written note.  But what to do with cards when they’ve expired their display time?  It’s either sock them away in a box or drawer, or toss them in the garbage (which always makes me feel sad!).

Needless to say, I’m loving Green Field Paper Company‘s plantable “Grow-a-Note” holiday cards!  The paper is made of 100% post-consumer pulp and printed using soy inks, and is embedded with tiny wildflower seeds.  When the holidays are done, you simply put the card in a pot, add water, and voila!  Up sprout your wild-holiday-card-flowers!  So much better than just throwing them away.

Green Field makes all kinds of recycled and plantable paper goodies, from writing paper, to business cards, to journals and sketchbooks, made from hemp, recycled jeans, coffee bean scraps, and more.

  1. This is so cool! Such an awesome ‘green’ spin on sending out all those cards that always find their way to the trash.

  2. I love this idea. Have seen it once before but instead of greetings cards, it was gift tags for presents. I think I might have to have a go at making some of my own! Great blog by the way!

  3. Freaking awesome. I want some of those cards. Great website, keep it up.

  4. Where do I buy these things?!?!
