What is an eco-friendly paper? In our opinion, the plantable paper made by Botanical PaperWorks is called eco-friendly because of these features:
- It's made with post-consumer waste collected from local business within a five mile radius. We batch up our collections to reduce gas emissions and we save the landfill several tons of paper per year since many of our collection locations were formerly throwing out their excess paper rather than recycling it.
- The paper recycles itself into wildflowers when the paper is planted which means your garden does the work of recycling the paper rather than increasing the burden on city recycling and disposal programs.
Additionally, in the environment where we make the paper, we employ many other eco-friendly best practices including producing with minimal impact, running a paperless office, using biodegradable cleaning supplies, using public transportation and much, much more.
Do you have an example of an eco-friendly business that you'd like to recommend? Share it with us - we'd love to meet more like-minded companies.
