Its a greeting card....no its a planter....no its SUPER GREETING CARD.
The Green Field Paper Company of San Diego, California is taking the green idea to the best extreme ever with SEED EMBEDDED GREETING CARDS. Now I can send LeOwner a "Happy Gardening Card" which she can actually plant. Here's how it works (quoted from the back of the greeting card I just received in the mail):
"This recycled paper is embedded with a colorful variety of wildflower seeds that will grow just about anywhere. For best results, plant this card in an area that receives partial to full sunlight. Thoroughly moisten and plant in fine soil 1/4 inch deep. Keep moist until seeds germinate, tend to them with love and watch them grow. The paper will recycle naturally into the soil as the seedlings grown."
The Green Field Paper Company also offers a variety of handmade specialty paper, including hemp paper, recycled wrapping paper, and business cards, just to name a few. I don't know about everybody else, but I think my partner and I have already solved our holiday card purchase (and it's only APRIL!):
