Even though presents are one of the more enjoyable aspects of the Christmas holidays, it’s hard to deny that they use up a lot of paper in the process. That’s where Eden’s Paper comes in, a 100% plantable wrapping paper that is available embedded with five different types of seeds; Carrots, Tomato, Broccoli, Chilli and Onion. Combine this latest invention with some plantable christmas cards and you could have one of your most environmentally-friendly holidays yet.

The paper is made from 100% recycled paper, and the seeds are embedded on the back of the wrapping paper in seven layers of biodegradable tissue paper. It’s all held together without glue, which would be a harmful addition to the soil where you want to plant your paper. Even the ink used in the printing process is vegetable-based – so this is an entirely earth-friendly product.

For the past 12 months the company has been testing and refining Eden’s Paper; which means all that’s left is for them to take their product to production. Starting from £5 ($8.10) on Kickstarter, you can get hold of a roll of wrapping paper that will go to good use even after this year’s presents have been unveiled.
