Wouldn’t it be nice to add to the festivities by buying Christmas cards that not only reduce waste, but also help the environment. Buy these cards and you will also directly support Growing Paper. They are a small business that provides employment to over fifty people from their local community. They are a proudly South African company that produces 100% hand-made, recycled, plantable and biodegradable paper products. These products grow into beautiful living herbs, vegetables or flowers when planted.
The idea for their recycled seeded paper products came about in 2009. Roxanne, the founder, was at a family wedding and started to think about all the stationery going to waste. With the help of Nileta, they bought some second-hand paper-making equipment. Soon they were creating beautiful greeting cards and gift tags using post-consumer wastepaper. They embedded them with seeds that grow into flowers, herbs or vegetables once they have been planted.
