Regenerative Packaging + Sustainability are Keys
We go a step beyond sustainable by utilizing the permaculture ethos of regenerative design. Our bottle boxes and cards are plantable. They are embedded with wildflower seeds that will grow when planted correctly!
Plantable paper is a biodegradable eco-paper that is made with post-consumer materials (no trees harmed for this paper!) and embedded with seeds. When the paper is planted in a pot of soil, the seeds grow and the paper composts away. All that is left behind is flowers, herbs or vegetables, and no waste.
In addition to regenerative packaging, we use recycled packaging materials, the glass bottles are reusable, and all of our ingredients are natural and sustainably produced and harvested.
Here are the seed types in the wildflower blend:
Here is how to plant your box and thank you card:
- a pot for planting
- some good potting soil
- plantable box and card
- a sunny corner
STEP 1 - PREPARE YOUR POT
Fill your pot 2/3 full with good potting soil. Tamp down the soil and add more if necessary. You want the pot to be firmly full, but not packed. The paper can be planted indoors or outside, so you get to choose according to the temperature and conditions at the time of planting (we don't recommend planting outside if it's blizzarding or desert-hot!).
STEP 2 - PLANT THE PAPER
Take your plantable paper and cover the soil in the prepared pot with the paper. It's okay if the paper overlaps. Spread an 1/8 inch layer of soil over the plantable paper pieces and tamp down gently.
STEP 3 - WATER DURING GERMINATION
After planting the paper in your pot, give it a good soak. You want the paper and the soil to be nicely damp but not swimming in water. During the first 10 days, keep the paper moist at all times. The water is necessary for germination.
STEP 4 - CARE AFTER GERMINATION
Once sprouts appear, continue to keep the paper moist but be careful not to overwater. Once sturdy plants appear, water as needed.
STEP 5 - ENJOY THE FLOWERS
Once the flowers (or herbs or vegetables) start to blossom, enjoy them in the pot or cut them and place in a decorative vase
