Seeds of Change
Weddings, New Year’s, birthdays: all of these celebrations call for a showering of confetti to mark the occasion. Tossing around handfuls of the paper party accessory doesn’t have to be a wasteful act if you opt for the plantable variety. Botanical PaperWorks specializes in a variety of eco-friendly paper products with a strong connection to the Earth. The confetti ($9.95 for 350 pieces)—like the line’s selection of cards, envelopes, and more—is biodegradable, made of post-consumer materials, and filled with seeds. Once your soiree is through, just collect the confetti, plant it in a pot, give it a little TLC and—voila!—a gorgeous green will germinate in no time. Inviting a new botanical beauty or two into your home and reducing waste are two more big reasons to celebrate after guests have left.
