Save the Earth and Add Some Beauty with Bloomin Published on March 08, 2016 Paper dishes. Paper cups. Paper planes. Paper towels. Newspapers. Toilet paper. Writing paper. Paper, paper, paper. It’s everywhere, it’s constant, and it’s inundating landfills all over the world. The EPA reported that 34 million tons of paper was thrown away in 2008 and paper makes up 13% of solid waste in the USA alone. But do they think we are going to stop sending birthday cards, go without ornate wedding invitations, or tell businesses they can’t send coupons or obtain business cards? Absolutely not, thanks to Bloomin. Bloomin has completely changed the paper-product industry, creating products from 100% post-industrial, recycled paper that is stained with totally-natural, vegetable-based pigments. But that’s not the best part – you can plant any and all of their products. Plant a card? Absolutely! Plant a bookmark? Of course! Plant confetti? Yes! All of Bloomin’s all-natural seed paper can actually be planted and Bloomin’s seed paper has the top germination rate in the market. But they don’t end their earth-friendly tactics at recycling paper to send you paper products you can plant to create a garden or just add a touch of beauty; they also take the eco-friendly game up a notch. All of their collection is printed with water and soy based inks and the package is largely corn-based. That's not all - their production facilities are sustainable, too. They installed a 30 kW solar power system so they can seriously say they are powered by the same sun that makes their seed paper grow.

These are a fantastic way to celebrate Earth Day! So now you can not only invite your loved ones to your kid's birthday party, but send them a selection of seeds that could include baby blue eyes, spurred snapdragons, lettuce, and even trees! Now the next time you start to order something made out of paper, remember you can send a more unique product and give the world a little TLC with Bloomin.
