Here's some more information about our wonderful tree-free paper we use to make our sustainable greeting cards: SEEDED PAPER: Our plantable greeting cards are handmade using cotton fibres, flax fibres and embedded with plantable seeds, and they can be planted and grow! ELEPHANT DUNG PAPER: Elephant dung is a rich source of fibre and is naturally processed in the digestive tract of the elephant. The dung is collected from elephant sanctuaries so this paper making provides and extra form of income for charities dedicated to animal preservation. LEMONGRASS PAPER: Lemongrass paper is made after the extraction process of oils from the lemongrass plant. Instead of discarding the grass, it is steamed and made into sheets of paper. COTTON PAPER: Cotton offcuts from the clothing manufacturing industry usually end up in landfills. But that's a real waste as cotton contains high cellulose that can be turned into high quality, chemical-free paper. So instead we use cotton paper made with the fashion waste and turn it into beautiful cards! Available in IVORY, GREEN and PEACH PINK colours. TEA PAPER: Tea makers only accept perfectly harvested tea leaves when they buy them from farmers. The rest is turned down and usually discarded. We save beautifully imperfect black tea leaves and make cards with them! COFFEE PAPER: Made with coffee husk (the skin of coffee beans) mixed with cotton pulp and fibre seeds, this paper is elegant and has a special shine to it. Perfect for all the coffee lovers in your life! BANANA PAPER: Once banana fibres are extracted, the paper that is manufactured with it is vibrant, sustainable and absolutely stunning! COCONUT PAPER: Made with coconut coir, the resistant and hairy fibre outside of coconuts, it allows to use every single part of a coconut without any waste. 100% FSC RECYCLED PAPER CARDS: You can also choose elegant cards that are made with 100% UK recycled paper that has not been bleached or treated with nasty chemicals. Instructions/information about the specific paper types are illustrated on the reverse of every card Each card comes with a brown kraft paper envelope Packs are wrapped in a compostable and biodegradable sleeve made of vegetable starch, fully biodegradable in home compost.
