Unwrap It, Then Plant It: 100% Plantable Wrapping Paper
December 5th, 2013
Every year, trash cans all around the world overflow with discarded gift wrap and packaging on Christmas morning. Some people take the time to unwrap their presents carefully on Christmas eve so the paper can be recycled, but the majority don’t have the patience (or simply don’t care enough) to do so. That’s where the plantable wrapping paper by Eden’s Paper comes in.
This unusual wrapping paper sports colorful designs that reflect what type of seeds are embedded in the paper itself. That means the entire paper is a giant seed packet that you can use to plant in your garden. How cool is that?
Naturally, it follows that the giftwrap is biodegradable, offering more eco-friendly options for its disposal.
Options for seeds include chili, tomato, broccoli, carrots, and onions. The plantable wrapping paper by Eden’s Paper is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of £5 (~$8 USD) will get you one sheet of the paper.
