As with all of our packaging, we wanted to find a sustainable solution for our labels. When we landed on seeded paper, we knew that was the right product for us!
Our labels are handmade, made from 100% pre-consumer recycled cotton, and they come packed full of bee friendly flower seeds (a mix of 4 varieties)! On average there are 30 seeds per label, each one includes Sweet Alyssum, Poppy, Baby’s Breath, and Basil. These are non-invasive species that are commonly found in the wild and in garden shops. They can be grown in pots and left outside for bees and other pollinators.
To make sure your seed label has the best chance of turning into beautiful flowers, you should:
- Soak it in water and tear into small pieces.
- Place pieces in a pot of compost and lightly sprinkle more compost on top
- Keep the soil and paper moist in a warm and light environment
- Once your small plants have grown, place pot outside, or keep on a window that has lots of sun.
We can't wait to see pictures of your labels growing!
