Wildflower Seed Paper - 100% PCR + non-GMO seeds

rectangular

This paper is made by combining 100% post-consumer pulp with non-invasive, non-GMO wildflower seeds. It’s colored using natural earth pigment and no dyes or bleaches. After use, this paper can either be recycled curbside, or it can be planted in soil and grown into wildflowers! The sample in the kit is embedded with a wildflower blend, but many seed options are available including herbs and vegetables. If a bellyband is desired, water-based, biodegradable glue is used that will not impact the soil or the viability of the seeds. Click here to see the available herb and veggie seed options.
