Looking for an eco-friendly way to announce the arrival of your bundle of joy? Winnipeg-based Botanical PaperWorks will guarantee your cards don’t get tossed into the recycling bin. Instead, they’ll get covered in mud. But that’s a good thing. Birth announcements, shower invitations and thank you cards are made with plantable paper embedded with North American wildflower seeds. Plant the paper and before too long, you’ll have Bird’s Eye, Clarkia, Poppy and Snap Dragon srouting in your garden or windowsill pot.
Simply visit http://www.botanicalpaperworks.com to order your hip design, colour and add a personal message. Most cards start at about $4.95 each but remember it’s a gift as well as an announcement. Most of the products are tree-free, made with 100 per cent post-consumer waste.
