Plantable Paper

Wouldn't it be lovely if you knew that using paper was actually helping the environment?

 Well Eden's Paper ( might just make you jump for joy. This amazing company has created a range of papers that actually have seeds inside each piece so that when you're done using the paper, you can actually grow whichever crop you want. 

Though we all try to recycle at least sometimes, it's always nice to have a little help. Products use symbols to show which part of the packaging is recyclable and some companies actually give you money back if you remember to recycle. But we could all do better. In 2012 it was recorded that enough wrapping paper was used and thrown away at Christmas to wrap around the entire globe 9 times! 

Eden paper is designed to combat this problem. The paper is patterned with a design to match the vegetable/fruit seeds inside so all the paper is actually strangely attractive and of course the picture helps you remember what you are supposed to be growing. The paper layers tissue with seeds so that the entire thing is biodegradable and you get a little something back. It's like an extra little gift. 

The paper is a little expensive at £4.99 but, considering the science behind it and the possibility of having crops for several months, its not too bad. This paper is an amazingly creative idea and is available on the market now.
