Recycling your wrapping paper and Christmas cards can give you some eco warm and fuzzies. But millions of tons of Christmas cards and wrapping paper can wind up in landfills if they are infused with glitter which is then REJECTED for recycling. Bummer!!
Perhaps get more creative and opt for seeded, plantable wrapping paper and Xmas cards that grow!
I came across a company called Botanical Paperworks. It’s a bounty of Seeded Paper that Grows. Boy did I hit the proverbial Motherlode!!
They have all kinds of seeded promotional items for all kinds of events and occasions. From greeting cards, wedding invites etc., they have an entire Green Gifts Guide with “Eco-Friendly, Plantable Gifts for All Occasions”. All I can say is yay!!
