One of our favorite types of eco-friendly papers is plantable paper. Typically made with 100% recycled content, plantable paper features such wildflower seeds as Bird's Eye, Black Eyed Susans, Sweet Alyssum and Snap Dragons. Not only does the paper break down when planted, the seeds sprout beautiful flowers and give back to the environment.
Plantable paper can be printed on in a number of eco-friendly ways including ink jet, with soy inks and with letterpress. At Lassoâ€™d Moon, we print our plantable invitations in-house on an ink jet printer, which is the most economical way and a great eco-friendly choice (our printer is Energy-Star certified and we recycled our cartridges). We pair them with your choice of recycled cardstocks and envelopes. Using an RSVP postcard or insert that directs your guest to a wedding website where they can RSVP and get other information about your big day are also great ways to keep your paper usage down.
Once planted, in just a couple of weeks, the paper will sprout, and your guests will be treated to vibrant and colorful flowers as the seeds mature. While it might not the least expensive way, invitations sent on plantable
paper can be one of the most beautiful.
