Most of my packaging comes from EcoEnclose - and amazing company that specializes in eco-friendly and sustainable options - from 100% recycled boxes and rigid flat mailers to biodegradable plant based cello tape and 100% recycled plastic sleeves when those are needed.
The boxes that we ship our jewelry in are made from recycled or sustainable materials. The boxboard material is made from recycled paperboard and then wrapped in a natural paper made from the invasive plant species water hyacinth. The jewelry pad is made from recycled fibers as well. They are produced by Distant Village/Elevate Packaging, a great company based out of Chicago, Illinois.
Plantable Seed Paper
We're so excited about our jewelry box inserts and hang tags, made from Grow-a-Note seed paper from Green Field Paper Company. Based out of San Diego, California, Green Field hand-makes their seed paper with 100% recycled ingredients and a custom blend of non-invasive wildflower seeds so you can plant it instead of throwing it away.
Per Green Field's FAQ page, instructions for planting the seed paper are as follows:
"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. Generously water daily, tend to them with love and watch them grow! The paper will recycle naturally into the soil as the seedlings grow."
Not only is our packaging recyclable and compostable, but it will even grow something new as it biodegrades! Amazing! If you came to this page because the back of our seed paper sent you here, THANK YOU for your purchase and following up to find out how to plant your seed paper.
