Give two gifts in one by wrapping a present in this plantable gift wrap. Gift giving isn’t just about following a highly-valued tradition that we particularly observe during birthdays, holidays, weddings, anniversaries and other special occasions. More importantly, we give gifts to our loved ones and friends to express that they’re important to us and to let them know that we care about them. Now, how about giving our planet a gift of love too?
While gorgeous gift wrapping adds a beautiful touch to a present, it will eventually be torn apart, thrown away and end up in a landfill. And by adding unnecessary waste, you’re actually not doing Mother Earth a favor. Instead of throwing it away, why not give the person you love gift wrap that that they can keep and nurture as they would with the gift itself? Just like this gift wrap that grows and blooms into beautiful flowers.
Plantable Gift Wrap
This gift wrap is made of biodegradable paper and it is embedded with hundreds of wildflower seeds. Of course, you’ll need to let the receiver know that their gift is wrapped in pre-seeded paper. And if they haven’t received anything like it before, you just need to tell them the proper way to plant these seeded papers. They can plant it in their garden or in planters or both.
Before planting, loosen the topsoil at least 3 inches deep to enable the roots to take hold. Cut the gift wrap to the desired size and place it on top of the loosened soil. Cover the paper with 1/8-inch of loose topsoil or coco coir. Sprinkle the patch with a fine mist of water until the paper underneath is thoroughly soaked. This should help decompose the paper faster and release the seeds into the soil. Water the patch at least once a day until the plants grow 3 to 4 inches high.
Grow A Colorful Garden By Planting These Seeded Papers
Also, remind the receiver that early growth resembles weeds. So, advise them not to weed the area for 4 to 8 weeks. When fully grown, the plants can be thinned out and transplanted to other patches or planters. In no time, they will be growing a charming, colorful garden of wildflowers. With this gift wrap, you’re lending a hand in reducing waste while encouraging your loved ones to go green. By planting more plants, we’re also reducing the amount of pollutants in the atmosphere and improving air quality.
The plantable gift wraps come in a pack of 4 in different colors. Each pre-seeded sheet measures 24 inches x 36 inches. Included in the box are 6 gift cards and a bundle of natural raffia. The next time you’re giving a gift to someone, consider giving our environment some love too. Ditch those decorative papers that are likely to end up in a dump and get this eco-friendly alternative instead. One happy buyer wrote:
“This gift wrap is so much fun. Got it for my plant obsessed mother and sister and they loved it and started talking about where the beautiful flowers could go. I get phone calls about the flowers they’re growing from the gift wrap and I’m about to change my number because it’s too much.”
