Grow your own vegetables with the leftover wrapping paper this year

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.
