Do you love the trend of paper products embedded with seeds? Here's a holiday twist: wrapping paper that can sprout vegetables!
Eden's Paper is designed by the UK-based firm BEAF, on behalf of a print factory. The wrapping paper is printed with the cultivar it contains and is garden-ready. It's available in chili, carrot, onion, tomato and broccoli; or you can opt to get a mixed package. The paper is made from recycled fibers and is printed with organic vegetable inks.
On one hand, it may be best to give gifts in packaging that can be used over and over--reducing the resources used in fresh production. On the other hand, this is a very cool use of biodegradable paper that has added value. It may even help the recipient of your gift eat a little healthier.
