J.PattonAs I was browsing the Internet the other day in search of some Christmas present inspiration for my friends and family, I came across a product I just knew my herbie blog readers would love: plantable greeting cards.

This season, you can give more than just holiday cheer when you send out greeting cards. You can give your loved ones a headstart on their spring gardening as well with Grow-A-Note Plantable Greeting Cards.

Each greeting card has a special blend of wildflower seeds embedded into it. These wildflowers range anywhere from Baby’s Breath to Siberian Wallflower, Chinese Houses, Baby Blue-Eyes or California Bluebells. And, since each handmade card is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled fiber, after reading your note, your loved one can simply place the entire card into the soil and watch their seedlings grow. 

Each set includes four envelopes, containing 30 percent post consumer waste, and four 4.5-inch by 6.5-inch greeting cards. The inside of each card is blank, so you can personalize your special message any way you would like. Check out Grow-A-Note Plantable Greeting Cards.

If you aren’t the greeting card type, the website offers many more environmentally friendly gifts, such as an iPod Stand composed of recycled silverware, or a vase made from recycled tires. They even offer holiday decorations, such as painted tea bag ornaments. With all of the options, you’re bound to find the perfect gift for that special someone.

For more information about these and other eco-friendly gifts, visit eco-artware.com.
