Eco-friendly seed paper

Eco-friendly seed paper

Paper recycling is not only one of the simplest ways to green our future, it is even more eco-friendly if the waste paper is pulped to produce paper sheets that contain seeds to grow flowers or herbs. By recycling paper we ensure that the carbon dioxide absorbed by plantation trees used to make the paper in the first place, is kept out of the atmosphere for longer.

Cleaner Environment

By recycling waste paper we also reduce the amount of recoverable packaging materials ending up in landfill (contributing to less pollution and litter), promoting job creation, a cleaner environment, and encouraging organic gardening through seed paper projects. Worldwide consumption of paper has risen by 400 percent since the 1970’s, with 35 percent of plantation trees being used for paper manufacture.
