The Eco-Friendly Revolution: Plantable Business Cards

by Nimisha Tewari 05 Oct 2023

Plantable Business Cards are a unique and eco-friendly alternative to traditional business cards. Instead of being made from regular paper, these cards are crafted from special biodegradable paper embedded with plant seeds. Here's how plantable business cards work and why they are gaining popularity:

  1. Biodegradable Paper: Plantable business cards are typically made from recycled paper or paper pulp, which is embedded with a variety of plant seeds. This paper is biodegradable, meaning it can break down naturally without harming the environment.

  2. Seeds Embedded: The paper contains seeds from various plants, such as wildflowers, herbs or even trees, depending on the type of plantable card. These seeds are embedded within the paper during the papermaking process.

  3. Instructions: Plantable business cards often come with instructions on how to plant them. Typically, recipients are advised to soak the card in water for a few hours or overnight to soften the paper and activate the seeds.

  4. Planting: Once the card is soaked, it can be planted directly in soil, either in a garden or a pot. The paper will decompose and the embedded seeds will germinate and grow into plants.

  5. Growth: Over time, the seeds will sprout and the card will transform into a living plant. The type of plant that grows depends on the seeds used in the card's production. Recipients can enjoy watching their business card transform into a beautiful plant.

Here are some key benefits and reasons why plantable business cards are becoming popular:

  1. Eco-Friendly: Plantable business cards are a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional cards, which are often discarded and contribute to paper waste.

  2. Memorable: These cards are unique and leave a lasting impression on recipients. They stand out from conventional business cards and can be a great conversation starter.

  3. Symbolic: Plantable business cards symbolize growth, renewal and environmental consciousness, making them a good fit for businesses that want to convey these values. 

  4. Marketing: They can be used as a creative marketing tool for eco-conscious businesses or those involved in the green industry.

  5. Positive Image: Using plantable cards can enhance a company's image as environmentally responsible and socially conscious.

  6. Conversation Starter: The act of giving a plantable business card and explaining how it works can lead to interesting conversations and networking opportunities.

  7. Variety: Plantable cards come in various designs and seed varieties, allowing businesses to choose options that align with their branding and message.

While plantable business cards are a novel and environmentally friendly choice, they may be more expensive than traditional business cards. However, many businesses view this as an investment in their sustainability and branding efforts.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
